Compiling on Debian GNU Linux

The Forgotten Server requires at least gcc 5.0, which is available in Debian 9.

1. Install the required software

The following command will install Git, CMake, a compiler and the libraries used by The Forgotten Server.

Git will be used to download the source code, and CMake will be used to generate the build files.
