 Post subject: Singular on FreeBSD
PostPosted: Sat Feb 09, 2008 10:45 pm 
Dear Singular Folks,

I am looking forward using Singular on FreeBSD. It seems that Singular used to support FreeBSD up to release 5.0 (for FreeBSD), time has flown ...

I had a wild try compiling Singular on FreeBSD, and encountered trouble with third party libraries shipped with Singular.

What is the status of FreeBSD support in current Singular developpement?

We do not access to newer freebsd systems -
so we cannot try it.
But Singular sources rely on having the gcc as compiler,
we try not to use OS specific stuff.
It compiles without problems on:
FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE #0 i386
gcc: 3.4.5

Tests on FreeBSD 6.3:
- you need to install flex, perl, gmake, libgmp4 (from the ports collection)
I got mysterious build failures due to a missing perl
- if the build fails in the ntl subdirectory, try:
cd ntl
make clean
./config.status
cd src
make setup1 && make setup2 && make setup3 && make setup4 && make ntl.a
and try again (gmake install from the top level)
