It is regularly tested to compile on other systems like Solaris and Mac OS X. REQUIREMENTS - OpenSSL (Optional, but needed for features like DNSSEC) - OpenSSL >= 0.9.7f for DANE support - OpenSSL >= 1.0.0 for ECDSA and GOST support - libpcap (Optional, but needed for examples/ldns-dpa) - (GNU) libtool (in OSX, that's glibtool, not libtool) - GNU make INSTALLATION 1. Unpack the tarball 2. cd ldns-<VERSION> 3. ./configure --with-examples --with-drill (optionally compile python bindings too with: --with-pyldns) 4. make 5. make install * Building from repository If you are building from the repository you will need to have (gnu) autotools like libtool and autoreconf installed. A list of all the commands needed to build everything can be found in README.git. Note that the actual commands may be a little bit different on your machine. Most notably, you'll need to run libtoolize (or glibtoolize). If you skip this step, you'll get an error about missing config.sub. * Developers ldns is developed by the ldns team at NLnet Labs. This team currently consists of: o Willem Toorop o Wouter Wijngaards o Matthijs Mekking Former main developers: o Jelte Jansen o Miek Gieben * Credits We have received patches from the following people, thanks! o Bedrich Kosata o Erik Rozendaal o Håkan Olsson o Jakob Schlyter o Paul Wouters o Simon Vallet o Ondřej Surý o Karel Slany o Havard Eidnes o Leo Baltus o Dag-Erling Smørgrav INFORMATION FOR SPECIFIC OPERATING SYSTEMS MAC OS X For MACOSX 10.4 and later, it seems that you have to set the MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET environment variable to 10.4 before running make. Apparently it defaults to 10.1. This appears to be a known problem in 10.2 to 10.4, see: http://developer.apple.com/qa/qa2001/qa1233.html for more information. SOLARIS In Solaris multi-architecture systems (which have both 32-bit and 64-bit support), it can be a bit taxing to convince the system to compile in 64-bit mode. Jakob Schlyter has kindly contributed a build script that sets the right build and link options. You can find it in contrib/build-solaris.sh KNOWN ISSUES A complete list of currently known open issues can be found here: http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/projects/ldns/bugs * pyldns Compiling pyldns produces many ``unused parameter'' warnings. Those are harmless and may safely be ignored. Also, when building with SWIG older than 2.0.4, compiling pyldns produces many ``missing initializer'' warnings. Those are harmless too.
