Source Code

Ubuntu/Debian packages

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils nvidia-current nvidia-current-dev freeglut3-dev build-essential libtool libx11-dev libxmu-dev libxi-dev libgl1-mesa-glx libglu1-mesa libglu1-mesa-dev libglewmx1.6-dev glew-utils git cmake libboost-all-dev bison bisonc++ flex

Windows installers

Windows Buildyard

  • Install Git and CMake if not yet installed.
  • Define an environment variable BOOST_ROOT pointing to your Boost installation.
  • Clone Buildyard.
  • Use cmd.exe to cd into the cloned Buildyard directory and start CMake from there to generate VS2010 projects (VS2010 is autodetected when installed)
  • Open Buildyard.sln and build the ALL_BUILD project.
Watch the output for important information. If undesired events occur, adjust CMakeFiles.txt for flags and Find*.cmake for library detection.
You can resume autoscrolling in the Visual Studio's Output window using Ctrl+End (Strg+Ende) hotkey.

Ubuntu Buildyard

Clone Buildyard into a directory of your choice.
mkdir eq-build && cd eq-build
git clone git://github.com/Eyescale/Buildyard.git
cd Buildyard

Adjust CMake flags in CMakeLists.txt and use make

gvim CMakeLists.txt #you might want to set CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
make -j9 release

Use VERBOSE=1 flag to see what CMake does when building. If a subproject fails, modify CMakeLists.txt or other CMake files in the src/{somesubproject} e.g. src/Lunchbox/CMakeLists.txt

Ubuntu build story (Without Buildyard)


# ...
sudo apt-get install cmake
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev 
sudo apt-get install bison bisonc++
sudo apt-get install flex

Sources from github

(can be copied in from elsewhere)
cd git-stuff/
git clone git://github.com/Eyescale/Equalizer.git
git clone git://github.com/Eyescale/Collage.git
git clone git://github.com/Eyescale/Lunchbox.git
git clone git://github.com/VMML/vmmlib.git


Surprisingly, Equalized build has to use swap even with 4Gb RAM available.
sudo fallocate -l 8G /mnt/8G.swap
sudo chmod 600 /mnt/8G.swap 
sudo mkswap /mnt/8G.swap 
sudo swapon /mnt/8G.swap 

Building projects

cd Lunchbox/
cmake -i
make -j
vim LunchboxConfig.cmake # (set PACKAGE_PREFIX_DIR ${HOME}/git-stuff/Lunchbox)
make install 

cd ../Collage/
Lunchbox_DIR=~/git-stuff/Lunchbox cmake -i
make -j
vim CollageConfig.cmake
make install 

cd ../vmmlib/
cmake -i
grep -Ir Werror .
vim CMake/Common.cmake 
grep -Ir RELEASE .
vim CMakeLists.txt 
cmake -i
make -j
make install 
vim vmmlibConfig.cmake

cd ../Equalizer/
Lunchbox_DIR=../Lunchbox/ Collage_DIR=../Collage/ vmmlib_DIR=../vmmlib/ cmake -i
grep -Ir COLLAGE_LIB .
vim CMakeCache.txt 
Lunchbox_DIR=../Lunchbox/ Collage_DIR=../Collage/ vmmlib_DIR=../vmmlib/ cmake -i
make -j

CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH="~/git-stuff/Lunchbox/install/include/:~/git-stuff/Collage/install/include/:~/git-stuff/vmmlib/install/include/" Lunchbox_DIR=../Lunchbox/ Collage_DIR=../Collage/ vmmlib_DIR=../vmmlib/ cmake -i
make -j
less Makefile 

Feed CMake the includes

ls include/
cd include/
ln -s ~/git-stuff/Lunchbox/install/include/lunchbox/
ln -s ~/git-stuff/Collage/install/include/co/
ln -s ~/git-stuff/vmmlib/install/include/vmmlib/
cd ..
make -j

Actually quite unnecessary

Just install all projects in one prefix dir from the beginning
mkdir ~/equalizer-gitmaster
cd ~/equalizer-gitmaster/
cp -a ~/git-stuff/Lunchbox/install/* .
cp -a ~/git-stuff/Collage/install/* .
cp -a ~/git-stuff/Equalizer/install/* .

Testing the binaries

cd bin/

LD_LIBRARY_PATH="~/equalizer-gitmaster/lib/" ./eqHello
