I can only confirm that Murmur runs on the following FreeBSD releases. However, it should build and run on others just fine. Feel free to edit this to add more versions that you've had success with.
- FreeBSD 7.1
- FreeBSD 7.2
Install the dependencies
This is a placeholder. This guide is targed towards Murmur at the moment.
The following are the main dependencies required for building 1.2.x from git.
- devel/boost (devel/boost_libs on 8.0+)
- security/openssl (Not necessary on at least 7.1+)
If you want to include Bonjour support, include these deps as well:
Note: As of current git (2010-07-03), you must edit src/murmur/murmur.pro and add another include path (/usr/local/share/Ice) to the slice2cpp line (#72 at time of writing), like so:
slice2cpp --checksum -I/usr/local/share/Ice ....
... or you could just symlink that directory to one of the directories the Makefile searches already.
To build the server, Murmur:
qmake-qt4 CONFIG+=no-client CONFIG+=no-dbus CONFIG+=no-bonjour main.pro make release
Note, I currently don't use CONFIG+=optimize because I'm building on 7.2 and running the binary on 7.1. I have no idea what possible consequences could come of that. I would not expect anything, but I'm just being on the safe side.
I actually prefer to build Murmur in a VM and send builds up to the production server. In case you're wondering, here are the run deps (without Bonjour support):
libprotobuf.so.3 => /usr/local/lib/libprotobuf.so.3 (0x28205000) libcrypto.so.5 => /lib/libcrypto.so.5 (0x282fb000) libIce.so.33 => /usr/local/lib/libIce.so.33 (0x28454000) libIceUtil.so.33 => /usr/local/lib/libIceUtil.so.33 (0x286f9000) libQtSql.so.4 => /usr/local/lib/qt4/libQtSql.so.4 (0x28738000) libQtXml.so.4 => /usr/local/lib/qt4/libQtXml.so.4 (0x28769000) libQtNetwork.so.4 => /usr/local/lib/qt4/libQtNetwork.so.4 (0x287a8000) libQtCore.so.4 => /usr/local/lib/qt4/libQtCore.so.4 (0x28890000) libz.so.4 => /lib/libz.so.4 (0x28a71000) libgthread-2.0.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libgthread-2.0.so.0 (0x28a83000) libglib-2.0.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 (0x28a88000) libiconv.so.3 => /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.3 (0x28b38000) libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0x28c2d000) libm.so.5 => /lib/libm.so.5 (0x28d22000) libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x28d37000) libthr.so.3 => /lib/libthr.so.3 (0x28d42000) libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x28d60000) libbz2.so.3 => /usr/lib/libbz2.so.3 (0x28e62000) libintl.so.8 => /usr/local/lib/libintl.so.8 (0x28e73000) libpcre.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libpcre.so.0 (0x28e7c000)

Caveats and Historical problems
When building 1.1.8 or earlier, build fails because of a missing alloca.h header. On FreeBSD, alloca() is declared in [stdlib.h], so it's safe to comment the line out (in src/murmur/murmur_pch.h). This has been fixed in git for quite some time, and is apparently fixed in the port of 1.1.8.
Requesting crypt-nonce resync
Crypto was broken on amd64 (and presumably others), however it's fixed in git. If you're trying to build a 1.1.8 server from source, [this patch] might help.
This was fixed in ports ([ports/139384]), so if you're building from ports, make sure your ports tree is up to date.
