Building Arcemu on CentOS

CentOS is a popular Linux distribution for servers, which is significantly different than Ubuntu which our Linux documentation assumes you have. Please note that this "guide" is for CentOS 5.5 (and presumably will work with newer too).

Initial Setup

We need to install the tools and libraries that we will be using to build Arcemu. First we need to update/install gcc and g++ compilers.

sudo yum remove gcc-c++
sudo yum remove gcc
sudo yum install gcc44
sudo yum install gcc44-c++

The gcc44-c++ package is not the default package and CentOS install it's binaries with the "44" suffix, which confuses our build scripts so we need to manually create symlinks for them.

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gcc44 /usr/bin/gcc
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/g++44 /usr/bin/g++

After it's done we can install the other tools and libraries we will need.

sudo yum install zlib-devel
sudo yum install openssl-devel
sudo yum install mysql-devel
sudo yum install pcre-devel
sudo yum install subversion

CMake install

We need to install CMake, which sadly doesn't come with CentOS.

  • Open up a terminal
  • Go to your home directory
cd ~

  • Get the CMake package from their site


This address was valid at the time of writing this how-to. If it doesn't work when you are trying, you will need to find the right link, here:

  • Unpack and copy it to /usr/local

sudo tar xvfz cmake-2.8.4-Linux-i386.tar.gz
cd cmake-2.8.4-Linux-i386
sudo cp -R cmake-2.8.4-Linux-i386/* /usr/local

The actual version number in the file/directory names might be different, depending on the current version offered by the authors of CMake

MySQL Setup

Now we will have to install MySQL server.

sudo yum install mysql-server

When we are done with that we need to configure it so we can actually use it In order to do that we need to first start it.

sudo /etc/init.d/mysqld start

It will show some messages, which is a nice read, but it will all come down to doing this:

sudo /bin/mysql_secure_installation

Further Installation Steps

From now on, the steps should be the same as in the main guide, so you might as well return to that page.
