Building in Debian

Compiling WDB should be fairly simple, if you have the appropriate libraries and systems installed. The following procedure is based on Ubuntu Lucid; keep in mind that the code changes faster than this wiki page.

Install the following debian packages on Precise Pangolin the packages would be:

               
apt-get install g++ make git-core libreadline-dev automake libtool autoconf-archive \
           postgresql-9.1 \ 
           postgresql-server-dev-9.1 postgresql-9.1-postgis libpqxx3-dev libboost-dev \ 
           libboost-date-time-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-regex-dev \
           libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-thread-dev liblog4cpp5-dev libcppunit-dev \ 
           libgrib-api-dev libproj-dev libglib2.0-dev libgeos-dev xmlto \
           automake libtool autoconf-archive libreadline-dev               

Packages from above in a copy-paste friendly format:

sudo apt-get install g++ make git-core libreadline-dev automake libtool autoconf-archive postgresql-9.1 postgresql-server-dev-9.1 postgresql-9.1-postgis libpqxx3-dev libboost-dev libboost-date-time-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-regex-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-thread-dev liblog4cpp5-dev libcppunit-dev libgrib-api-dev libproj-dev libglib2.0-dev libgeos-dev xmlto automake libtool autoconf-archive libreadline-dev

To build debian packages, you will additionally require:

apt-get install build-essential cdbs debhelper devscripts dpkg-dev po-debconf

To install wdb from the debian package, the following packages are additionally required:

apt-get install proj postgresql-client

You can then download the latest WDB source from:

git clone git@github.com:wdb/wdb.git wdb

To get a read-only version of the github repository it is sufficient to have git installed and use the read-only address:

apt-get install git
git clone git://github.com/wdb/wdb.git

If you haven't used GitHub before, see Help.GitHub for details on how to connect your system.

Enter the wdb directory, wdb and run:

./autogen.sh

Run configure:

./configure

Add –prefix=target-dir to install the software under another directory (recommended if you are not root, or doing this for the first time. This will allow you to easily uninstall/delete the WDB system later).

Run make:

make

This should build the WDB code, assuming everything above has gone to plan. The same procedure can be followed for each of the other WDB packages.

The wdb-libwdbload package (used for loading programs) additionally requires

libboost-system-dev libboost-test-dev

The wdb-gribload package (used for loading programs) additionally requires

bc

The wdb-locationforecastload application requires

cmake libxml++2.6-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev help2man libgtest-dev

The wdb-netcdfload application requires

libfimex-dev libxml2-dev help2man

wdb2ts also requires

libboost-iostreams-dev apache2-threaded-dev

Several projects require

libboost-test-dev

Note that due to bugs within the m4 macros used, libboost-test may often not be flagged correctly as the source of the configure error.
