    Default G++/XBTT Install

    Not sure if this is the right place for this, but, I'm trying to install G++ to use it with XBTT, which is a bit torrent tracker. To do this I need to run this command: yum install boost-devel gcc-c++ mysql-devel subversion

    But Yum isnt installed on the servers apparently. So I need to also install that. Can anyone help me out with this?

    Can you use the GNU Compiler available via the Site Manager for this? We don't have yum available to use and I don't think there has ever been anyone who has installed and documented it.

    Honestly I have no idea how to do that. I just need xbtt to run, and therefore that string needs to be executed.

    yum is not something available to us and it requires root access to install. Can you provide a link to the page where you got the information on how to install XBTT? Is it one of these? http://xbtt.sourceforge.net/

    The yum command you gave is for installing several things two of which can be installed via Site Manager (MySQL and GCC). Subversion and boost would need to be installed manually. It may be there are other ways to install what you need other then with Yum.

    Yes, from the sf site is where I got the information. I just need xbtt installed. I'm not particular on how it's installed, just so long as it's installed correctly.

    For this one I would suggest haveing WestHost install for you. It could get a bit expensive but at least you'll have it done right. There used to be a page that let you ask for a quote from WH on such an install but I can find it so just use thier Contact Us page to ask. Make sure they are aware you want to have a quote on how much they would charge.

    Two of the the things you need can be installed via the Site Manager. That is MySQL and GNU Compiler. The other two requirements are Boost and Subversion. When you contact WestHost make sure you give them the URL for XBT Tracker: http://xbtt.sourceforge.net/tracker/ You might also mention that it is reliant on the following two...
    Boost: http://www.boost.org/
    Subversion: http://subversion.tigris.org/

    If you wanted to try installing this yourself you could use the information at the two sites above to install the two dependencies then get the XBT Tracker installed. Don't forget to install MySQL and GNU first via the Site. Manager.

    There is a forum Thread here on Subversion that you may want to have a look at: http://forums.westhost.com/showthrea...0828#post40828 Make sure you read my post on the next page of that thread as it has an update to the mirrors for APR and APR-UTIL 0.9.x which is in reference to his step 2.

    Well, I'd have them install it for me, unfortunately I have absolutely no money to spend on that. I got Subversion installed correctly, now I just need Boost. And it's seems more difficult than Subversion.

    So I got closer to installing boost. I just need bjam to work now. This is the command I'm told to run:

    Code:
    bjam --build-dir=/tmp/build-boost --toolset=gcc stage
    And this is the error I get.
    Code:
    bjam: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by bjam)
    And yes, it's in one of my PATHs.

    It looks like it is wanting a newer version of GNU installed on the account. I think WestHost is currently installing 2.3.4. We don't have control over these files so you would have to contact WestHost and see if they would update GNU to 2.4 for you.

    The only other suggestion I would have to see if perhaps there is an older version of Boost that you could install that did not require the 2.4 version.

    I really appreciate your help with me on this.

    I'm ganna contact them and ask them if they can update it. If they can't than I'll try a lower version.

    Edit: So I spoke with "Kevin" about this and he tells me that because it's a custom installation he can't help me. (But it's updating an app on their site manager, that's not custom, that's updating.) But oh well. So I'm now stuck with either updating it myself, or downgrading boost. Thoughts?
