[5409] Improved INSTALL file

parent 092b634f
If using git (not the tarball), build the "configure" file:
autoreconf --install
To then build from source:
1. Generate the configure script. If you downloaded the source from
git you will need to run run autoreconf to generate the configure script
as shown below. If you are building from a tarball you may skip this step.
$ autoreconf --install
2. Run the configure script. If you want to alter Kea's installation path, or
need to include capabilities (e.g. enabling MySQL or PostgreSQL) you will need
to specify these as options to the configure script (run ./configure -h for
list of options).
$ ./configure
If your environment is missing dependencies, the configure script will exit
with error and should emit sufficient information to guide you on how to
proceed. A detailed account of the configure process is captured in
3. Build it. Once you've successfully configured the source tree, run "make" to
build it. You may wish to include the -j<n> command line option to specify
parallel execution to speed things along:
$ make
4. Install it by running:
$ make install
Kea depends on C++ compiler, make, libtool, boost (at least includes, but many
OSes require boost-system library), log4cplus and one crypto library (either
OpenSSL or Botan) for compilation. Optional backends (MySQL, PostgreSQL and
Cassandra) have additional dependencies. For detailed installation directions,
see the guide at doc/guide/kea-guide.txt or doc/guide/kea-guide.html.
