  • ace Installing ACE on CentOS 7

    Pavel Belev

    Building MaNGOS on Linux requires ACE libraries. I could not find information on installing those here, so I will make a short HOWTO (copied from ACE documentation)

    1. Make a folder for ACE in your preferred location ( I use /opt)

    mkdir /opt/ace && cd /opt/ace

    2. Download and unpack ACE

    wget http://download.dre.vanderbilt.edu/previous_versions/ACE-6.4.7.tar.gz
    tar -zvf ACE-6.4.7.tar.gz

    3. Add needed environment variables

    cat >> /etc/profile <<EOF
    export ACE_ROOT=/opt/ace/ACE_wrappers
    source /etc/profile

    4. Add the desired headers

    cat > /opt/ace/ACE_wrappers/ace/config.h <<EOF
    #include "ace/config-linux.h"
    cat > /opt/ace/ACE_wrappers/include/makeinclude/platform_macros.GNU <<EOF
    INSTALL_PREFIX = /usr/local
    include $(ACE_ROOT)/include/makeinclude/platform_linux.GNU

    5. Build ACE

    cd /opt/ace/ACE_wrappers
    make install

    6. Add the library to the public path

    cat > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ace.conf <<EOF
    ldconfig -v
