Docsis-server install in Ubuntu 8.04

Base guide is here
http://users.accesscomm.ca/docsis_server/howto_1.html

I installed docsis first so this package might have dependencies already installed from docsis.

wget http://users.accesscomm.ca/docsis_server/docsis-server-current.tar.bz2

bunzip

aptitude install m4

./configure

it will look for m4
see if m4 is installed `which m4`
if not, aptitude install m4
if already installed, mod configure script to do the m4 check correctly:
look for this line,

if test "x$ac_is_gnu_m4" = "xGNU"; then

change it to:
if test "x$ac_is_gnu_m4" = "xm4"; then

run ./configure again

if you get this error:
checking for mysql_config... /usr/libexec/mysql_config
configure: error: You need at least mysql 4.0.0, get it at http://www.mysql.com

aptitude install mysql-client mysql-server libmysqlclient15-dev

run ./configure again

make

make install

verify

docsis source code install in Ubuntu 8.04

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/docsis/docsis/docsis-0.9.5/docsis-0.9.5.tar.gz?use_mirror=nchc

untar

goto docsis-0.9.5 dir

aptitude install m4 bison libsnmp-base libsnmp15 snmpd libsnmp-dev flex

./configure

it will look for m4
see if m4 is installed `which m4`
if not, aptitude install m4
if already installed, mod configure script to do the m4 check correctly:
look for this line,

if test "x$ac_is_gnu_m4" = "xGNU"; then

change it to:
if test "x$ac_is_gnu_m4" = "xm4"; then

run ./configure again

it will look for bison,
aptitude install bison
and run ./configure again

`make`

make sure you install flex or you will get an error from sed about a file not being found

if you get an error about floor:
undefined reference to `floor'

goto
root@tds-stg-dhcp02:~/docsis-0.9.5# vim src/Makefile

look for this line:
LINK = $(LIBTOOL) --mode=link --tag=CC $(CCLD) $(AM_CFLAGS) $(CFLAGS) \
$(AM_LDFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@

and add the math function:
LINK = $(LIBTOOL) --mode=link --tag=CC $(CCLD) $(AM_CFLAGS) $(CFLAGS) \
$(AM_LDFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS) -lm -o $@

run make again
root@tds-stg-dhcp02:~/docsis-0.9.5# make

make install

verify:
root@tds-stg-dhcp02:~/docsis-0.9.5# ls -l /usr/local/bin/docsis
