Install from sources on Centos 7 fails

Cmake greater than 3.11 is not available via yum install cmake. that gives only 2.8 version. The only option is to use a precompiled Cmake. but even that does not allow to fully complete installation is I use a specific installation directory (not the default /usr/local , but /usr/local/manticore.

These are the steps(https is removed on all wgets to by pass forum filtering):

In /opt folder:
wget -c manticore-3.5.2-200722-6903305-release.tar.gz
tar -zxf manticore-3.5.2-.tar.gz
cd manticore-3.5.2-

(Stemmer download could be added to documentation for installs as this part is missing)
wget snowball.tartarus.org/dist/libstemmer_c.tgz
tar xvf libstemmer_c.tgz

yum install libmariadb-dev mariadb-devel libmysqlclient-dev mysql-devel
yum install re2
yum install gcc gcc-c++ make expat-devel libicu-devel openssl-devel boost-devel rpm-build systemd-units
yum install cmake (if installs lower than 3.11 version use:

Get precompiled Cmake

wget github.com/Kitware/CMake/releases/download/v3.19.0-rc3/cmake-3.19.0-rc3-Linux-x86_64.tar.gz

tar -zxf cmake-3.19.0-rc3-Linux-x86_64.tar.gz

cd cmake-3.19.0-rc3-Linux-x86_64/

ln -s /opt/cmake-3.19.0-rc3-Linux-x86_64/bin/cmake /bin/cmake

as /bin is a symlink to /usr/bin/ and is the same as doing this:

ln -s /opt/cmake-3.19.0-rc3-Linux-x86_64/bin/cmake /usr/bin/cmake

In any case, as mentioned I installed a precompiled version of cmake 3.19 to /opt/cmake-3.19.0-rc3-Linux-x86_64 and created a link for it to /bin/cmake simply to ensure any other calls used the correct version as well, as you’ve already seen.

The installation directory is usually left at its default, which is /usr/local. Installing software here ensures that it is automatically available to users. It is possible to specify a different installation directory by adding -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/manticore to the CMake command line.

As for precompiling the configuration, this was actually done in the build/ directory with

mkdir build && cd build

cmake -S /opt/manticore-3.5.2-201002-8b2c175-release-source -DWITH_MYSQL=1 -DWITH_RE2=1 -DWITH_STEMMER=1 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/manticore

to set the source as was recommended in the documentation combined with the flags.

Create a folder /usr/local/manticore

mkdir manticore

After cmake completed the precompile, within the same build/ directory to actually install was done with:

make -j4

and this is where it fails:

Any ideas on how to fix this?

And I am really sorry for forum filters trying to tell me i can only put 2 links on my first post.

Could you post full build log at gist or pastebin or use markdown triple ` to keep formatting sane?

like this

Is this the one?

The errors of the make were at the end (on my first post). Strangely - I have run the build and the make and a got a different result this time:

I see the difference now. Deleted everything from /build forlder.

Executed:

```make -j4

Got errors shown on the first post and make stopped at 84%

So i ran this again without deleting anything from build folder:
```cmake -S /opt/manticore-3.5.2-201002-8b2c175-release-source -DWITH_MYSQL=1 -DWITH_RE2=1 -DWITH_STEMMER=1 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/manticore
```make -j4

and make went to 100% with warnings you see on my previous post.

On clean build is is always the same (repeating build and make will do 100% to finish)

So I’ll leave it here until you have more questions or a solution.

Is there any progress on this installation problem?

Hi @L4G

Not sure what went wrong in your case, but here’s how I compiled centos 7 package with -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/manticore in centos 7 building docker in macos (but it shoudn’t make any difference):

I have tried the latest stable 3.19 Cmake buil and it actually stops at 80%
I still see the problem with Cmake at the same place just after libsphinx is built. So there must be something Cmake does not like in the code. Either way - it could be even Cmake problem on Centos 7 as i was getting this:

```[ 79%] Building CXX object src/CMakeFiles/libsphinx.dir/fnv64.cpp.o

```make[1]: *** [src/CMakeFiles/spelldump.dir/all] Error 2
```make: *** [all] Error 2

After some more tests for another few hours and getting nowhere I have decided to install Docker on my server and give it a try as I was hitting a wall. Will update afterwards.

Maybe it’s a problem of cmake 3.19 which we’ll have to fix eventually when we need smth from 3.19. As I showed, with cmake 3.17.3 it works fine, we anyway use our dockers for build to not depend on the host server’s OS, cmake version etc.

Yes, it is very possible that Cmake 3.19 is not compatible yet.

:slight_smile: It would refuse to do although I have repeated this 3 times just as you were doing with docker. It complains about cmakelist not being present in build folder. Tried in manticoresearch folder - it does start but that is not the right way. What is missing here?

OK, Docker must be some path missing but when you have mentioned that Cmake 3.17 was tested and working I did the same since I did not know what else to test with Docker image installation (you may see the whole list of command done just as yours). Maybe some step missed prior to that. Still - would be beneficial to others to mention the correct way on Install page. Less questions asked :wink:

So I went ahead and downloaded Cmake 3-17.3 , built it and took latest ManticoreSearch build from Git based on your commands.

This time it went like charm and installed everything. So I believe it would be best to mention on Installation documentation both - Lowest and highest Cmake version tested. Would save a lot of trouble to all. So my case on installation is solved. it was installed where I wanted.

Instructions for someone building on Centos 7 with MariaDB from sources some time in future:

Download Manticore In /opt folder:
wget -c https://repo.manticoresearch.com/repository/manticoresearch_source/release/manticore-3.5.2-200722-6903305-release.tar.gz
tar -zxf manticore-3.5.2-.tar.gz
rename manticore-3.5.2-
to manticore

cd /opt/manticore

or get from github in /opt folder

git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/manticoresoftware/manticoresearch.git

wget http://snowball.tartarus.org/dist/libstemmer_c.tgz
tar -xvf libstemmer_c.tgz

yum install libmariadb-dev mariadb-devel libmysqlclient-dev mysql-devel
yum install re2
yum install gcc gcc-c++ make expat-devel libicu-devel openssl-devel boost-devel rpm-build systemd-units
yum install cmake (if installs lower than 3.13 version use:

wget https://cmake.org/files/v3.17/cmake-3.17.3.tar.gz

tar -zxf cmake-3.17.3.tar.gz

cd /cmake-3.17.3

(Note: the make install step is optional, cmake will run from the build directory just fine.)

./bootstrap
make
#Optional, skipped this step, cmake is built in bin folder and that is enough:
make install

The installation directory is usually left at its default, which is /usr/local and usually better not to install here. It is possible to specify a different installation directory by adding

-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/manticore to the CMake command line.

As for precompiling the configuration, this was actually done in the /build directory in

cd /opt/manticoresearch

mkdir build && cd build

/opt/cmake-3.17.3/bin/cmake -S /opt/manticoresearch -DWITH_MYSQL=1 -DWITH_RE2=1 -DWITH_STEMMER=1 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/manticore

to set the source as was recommended in the documentation combined with the flags.

Create a folder /usr/local/manticore

mkdir manticore

After cmake completed the precompile, within the same build/ directory to actually install was done with:

make -j4

and

make -j4 install

again per the documentation.

This installs Manticore in /usr/local/manticore

Check the version:

cd /usr/local/manticore/usr/bin

./searchd -v
