Compiling on Mac OS X
1. Install the required software
1.1. Installing Homebrew
Homebrew is a package manager for Mac OS X. It uses formulae scripts to compile the software on your system. If you already have Homebrew installed, you can skip this step.
Open a Terminal window and run:
1
$ /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Copied!
1.2. Installing software and libraries
The following command will install Git, CMake 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.
1
$ brew install git cmake gmp mysql-connector-c luajit boost pugixml pkg-config fmt
Copied!
Install cryptopp manually (it is no longer available via brew). Make sure to use latest version, in case it is 8.5.0, you can try this:
1
wget https://github.com/weidai11/cryptopp/archive/refs/tags/CRYPTOPP_8_5_0.zip
2
unzip CRYPTOPP_8_5_0.zip && cd cryptopp-CRYPTOPP_8_5_0
3
make shared all
4
make install
Copied!
