mangos zero Building on CentOS7, build fail(cannot find -lACE)


Running into an issue when I try to build. I am following this guide:

Noticed when it was grabbing packages like ACE and what not from .de, it would fail and skip. However, the install would push forward. I am assuming it found what it needed, but it gave more errors.

Then I followed this guide:

Finally, was able to get the build up to 97%, but it fails with finding -lACE. Does anyone have any tips?

All these issues comes from a wrong advice given in the mentioned install tutorial. All versions of MaNGOS have their own ACE integrated in the source code, so you don't need to mess with downloading and installing ACE separately. The guide says "Use External ACE libraries. Allows you to use the ACE libraries coming from your system. Untoggle this option only if you know what you are doing. " But this should read "Untoggle this option UNLESS you know what you're doing".

So, the solution is to clear everything, and repeat the install and build process, BUT WITHOUT EXTERNAL ACE. You'll be amazed how smooth it'll compile and install.
