Introduction
============

This document explains steps to take after obtaining a Virtuoso source
snapshot or git clone.

These sections explain how to compile, test and install and what
components are produced by the make process and how one can interact
with them.


Package Dependencies
====================

To generate the configure script and all other build files necessary,
please make sure the following packages and recommended versions are
installed on your system.

    Package  Version                         From
    -------  -------                         ----
    autoconf 2.57               http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/
    automake 1.9                http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/
    libtool  1.5.16             http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/
    flex     2.5.33 (was 2.5.4) http://www.gnu.org/software/non-gnu/flex/
    bison    2.3 (was 1.35)     http://www.gnu.org/software/bison/
    gperf    2.7.2              http://www.gnu.org/software/gperf/
    gawk     3.1.1              http://www.gnu.org/software/gawk/
    m4       1.4.1              http://www.gnu.org/software/m4/
    make     3.79.1             http://www.gnu.org/software/make/
    OpenSSL  0.9.7i             http://www.openssl.org/

and any GNU packages required by these. The autogen.sh and configure
scripts check for the presence and right version of some of the required
components.

The above version are the minimum recommended versions of these packages.
Older version of these packages can sometimes be used, but could cause
build problems.

To check the version number of the tools installed on your system,
use one of the following commands:

    $ autoconf --version
    $ automake --version
    $ libtoolize --version
    $ flex --version
    $ bison --version
    $ gperf --version
    $ gawk --version
    $ m4 --version
    $ make --version
    $ openssl version

If you have an older version than automake version 1.9 you can edit
the configure.in script around line 47 using the examples provided for
each version.

Note that uptodate operating systems (particularly all Linux distibutions)
split some of these packages into runtime and development
packages, so users of these platforms may need to run e.g.:

    apt-get install libssl-dev

or

    yum install openssl-devel 

to get development headers & libraries for OpenSSL.


Diskspace Requirements
======================

The build produces a demo database and Virtuoso application packages
that are quite large. At least 800 MB of free space should be available
in the build file system.

When running `make install', the target file system should have about 460
MB free. By default, the install target directories are under /usr/local/,
but you can specify

    ./configure --prefix=/path/to/dir

instead.

The minimum working configuration consists of the server executable
and config files plus database, no more than a few MB for the server
executable, depending on platform and options.


Make FAQ
========

In the root directory of the checkout perform the following commands:

    ./autogen.sh        # should only be needed in git clone
    ./configure
    make

to produce the default binaries, VAD packages and demo database. This
takes some time, principally due to building and filling the demo
database, rendering the XML documentation into several target formats
and composing various Virtuoso application packages. It takes about 30
minutes on a 2GHz machine.

The default configure does not enable most of the runtime-hosting and
extension features. See the links on the building page for instructions
on how to enable these and what additional software is required.

Some builds require additional C compiler and other environment flags to
be set before running the configure command, especially when building
64-bit versions of the server. If your system is not in this list,
please try to run the configure command without any environment settings.

Warning: if VAD or other packages fail to be built, especially on
64-bit Linux platforms, ensure you're not using excessive optimization.
CFLAGS="-O2" is known to work but there are reports of -O3 failing.

If your system requires additional flags not listed below, please contact
us at <vos.admin@openlinksw.com>.

    export CFLAGS CC PATH
    ./configure ...

Installation
============

After running configure && make,

    make install

at the root of the build tree copies the files to the locations
specified by the --prefix option to configure. The default of --prefix
is /usr/local/. You can override this by specifying `make install
prefix=/home/virtuoso' instead, for example.

These subdirectories are all appended to the specified prefix,
i.e. /usr/local/ by default:

 * share/virtuoso/doc/html
 * share/virtuoso/doc/pdf
 * share/virtuoso/vad - VAD packages BPEL, Conductor, tutorials, documentation
 * var/lib/virtuoso/db - Empty database
 * var/lib/virtuoso/demo - Demo database - obsolete as of version 5.0.3
 * bin/ - The virtuoso-t, isql, isqlw, virt_mail, virtuoso-sample-t, inifile
    executables
 * lib/ - libvirtuoso-t.a libvirtuoso-t.la virtodbc32.a virtodbc32.la
    virtodbc32 r.a virtodbc32_r.la virtodbc_r.so wikiv.so, plus any plugins
    that may be enabled.
 * lib/virtuoso - hosting sample.a hosting_sample.la hosting_sample.so
    plugin_sample.a plugin_sample.so

Note: as of version 5.0.2, the ./configure script supports different
subdirectory structures with the --with-layout= parameter. If you've
specified something other than the default, the above may differ
accordingly.

As of version 5.0.3, the demo is a VAD package, not a separate directory.


Test Suite
==========

Optionally, you can run

    make check

at the root of the build tree to start the automated test suite. This
takes about an hour on a 2GHz machine and requires approximately 1 GB
of free disk space.


Getting Started
===============

Run

    cd var/lib/virtuoso/db 
    virtuoso-t -f &

to start the server in the background. It will not detach from the shell,
so you see the startup messages.

By default, when no -c parameter is specified, virtuoso will use the
virtuoso.ini file in this directory, which is generated as part of
`make install'.

The first time it's run, it will create the empty database (no special
commands required) and install the Conductor VAD package. From here, you
can access http://localhost:8890/ and http://localhost:8890/conductor/ and
use the System Administration / Packages page to install other packages
such as Demo and the ODS suite (addressbook, weblog, feeds manager and
other applications) etc. 

The default login is `dba' with a password of `dba' for the Conductor and
isql (for DAV functions, the default login is `dav' with a password of
`dav').

You will see a checkpoint in the terminal for each package selected:

    15:33:54 INFO: Checkpoint made, log reused

To connect with the command line SQL tool,

    isql 1112 dba dba

gives a SQL> prompt.

If you've installed the demo VAD above, type
    SQL> use Demo;

to switch to the demo database, containing the Microsoft Northwind sample
tables. The `help' command in isql gives further instructions.


To use the web admin interface, point the browser to: 

    http://localhost:8890/conductor

To read the documents online: 

    http://localhost:8890/doc/html

To experiment with online tutorials you can use the conductor to install
the Tutorial vad package into your database, then point the browser to:

    http://localhost:8890/tutorial


VAD Packages
============

The different VAD packages can be installed via ISQL using the following
command (if the installation packages reside in the filesystem):

    SQL> vad_install ('file/system/path/package-name.vad', 0);

Alternatively, you can copy VAD packages to Virtuoso's DAV repository
and then execute the following command (also from ISQL):

    SQL> vad_install ('webdav/path>/package-name.vad', 1);

at the isql command line. Note that the DirsAllowed parameter of the
Parameters section of the ini-file must allow access to the directory
where the package file is located.
