Building quasselcore on Ubuntu 804 Hardy Heron/x64¶
Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron (latest long term supported Ubuntu) does not come fresh enough Qt4 libs to build Quassel 0.5.0. Qt 4.4.1 needed, Qt 4.4.0 is available by default.
Here are some notes for advanced users to get Quassel up and running.
- Enable Scott Kitterman's repositories on the system https://launchpad.net/~kitterman/+archive/ppa. You need to 1) install GPG key 2) add PPA repositories to /etc/apt/source.list. The page contains instructions how to do this.
- Run apt-get update to make system to reflect packages on Kitterman's repositories
Check that version given for qt4-dev-tools is 4.4.3 now (it pulls from Scott's PPA repository):
apt-cache show qt4-dev-tools
Install qt4-dev-tools (Qt 4.4.3 version)
apt-get install qt4-dev-tools
Download Quassel source tarball and extract it: http://quassel-irc.org/downloads
cmake . make
Run it. The output will come to terminal to solve possible issues during the launch.
