Building Opal on Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu already provides packages for PTLib, as these are needed for Ekiga.
If you want to install the developer packages, then as of 30 May 2009 these are called libpt2.6.1-dev. The matching Opal package is called libopal3.6.1-dev.
If you want to compile PTLib yourself, then you will either need to uninstall the existing PTLib (and Opal and Ekiga) or install your new PTLib to another directory. See above for instructions on how to do this.
You will also need the following information:
- If you are getting PTLib direct from the SVN archive, you will need to install Subversion:
sudo apt-get install subversion
- You will need to install GCC, Flex, Bison
sudo apt-get install g++ flex bison
- It is recommended that you install the Expat development libraries:
sudo apt-get install libexpat1-dev
