|Prev||Appendix A. Building VOS from Source||Next|
A.3. The Build Process
If you are on a native Unix-like system such as Linux, Macintosh OS X or Sun Solaris you are ready to compile VOS. If you are on Windows, go to instructions for setting up a MinGW/MSys VOS build environment and return here when completed; or instructions for compiling VOS on Microsoft Visual C++ 8.0
A.3.1. Using a source distribution
This section only applies if you downloaded a source distribution tar.gz
Untar the VOS package (if you have not done so already).
$ tar xvzf vos-0.23.0.tar.gzThat's it. Now go to the next section, configuring.
A.3.2. Using CVS
This section only applies if you are fetching a development version of VOS from the CVS repository
First you will need to "check out" VOS from CVS. Use the following command to make an anonymous checkout:
$ cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/cvsroot checkout vos
Now change into the "vos" directory and run the following program to prepare the the necessary scripts and makefiles:
$ cd vos $ ./autogen.shYou must have autoconf 2.53 and automake 1.6 (minimum versions, later versions can be expected work).
That's it. Now go to the next section, configuring.
