Attempting to install MOST4Linux 1.0.0 under Ubuntu – Part 1
However, it was originally designed for earlier versions of the Linux kernel than 2.6.38; and is no longer actively maintained by its developers – which makes compiling, and using it a challenge.
When I initially attempted to build the code, after downloading and extracting the most recent source code archive, the build process failed with:
By making a number of modifications to the source code and build scripts, I was eventually able to reach this stage:
Unfortunately, I’m unsure of the best way to continue – so I’ve decided to dump my modified code on BitBucket.
Those curious about my modifications to achieve the aforementioned result can deduce them from the “reversed” difference list – which was created by adding my modified version of the code into a special branch in a new Mercurial repository (“
Initial_Ubuntu_Port_Attempt“), and then retroactively importing the original version of the code into yet another branch (“
When I get the chance, I’ll probably document how I arrived at that conclusion, and share some resources that I discovered along the way.
