This mailing list is primarily intended as coordination of existing
package maintainers of Mumble in different distros; in the future, and
if you have further followup, please use our forums.
As it says in the "INSTALL" file, you can build the server only by
appending CONFIG+=no-client to the qmake line. However, CentOS 5 is
hopelessly outdated, and there simply is no way to build on it without
updating quite a few libraries. I recommend using our precompiled static
server binary, which was created for this purpose.
