Installing awffull on debian
I wanted the sexy newer beta version of awffull (because webalizer is… awful… and hasn’t been updated since 2002 and keeps spiders in your stats and stuff).
Unfortunatly, this meant I had to not use apt-get for the first time in months.
Here’s a redux of what a debian user needs to do to get Awffull running local (assuming you have superuser privileges):
# # grab the recent build, at the time of this writing: 3.8.1 b3 # wget http://www.stedee.id.au/files/awffull-3.8.1-beta3.tar.gz # # untar it and gunzip it # tar -xvvzf awffull-3.8.1-beta3.tar.gz # # climb into the newly minted directory (for you neophytes out there, # it'll be different if the version/filename is different) # cd awffull-3.8.1-beta3 # # Now you need to make sure you have the libpng libraries installed. # So as superuser we'll grab ALL of the libpng libraries... # sudo apt-get install libpng* # # now the GD Lib... which had a somewhat esoteric name for apt-get. # I found this by running a debian site:http://www.libgd.org google. # apt-get install libgd2-dev # # Next was the perl compatible regular expressions library. # The google for this one was apt-get "Perl Compatible Regular Expressions" # apt-get install libpcre3-dev # # You may need to also install zlib. I didn't, as it's a very common library... but # if you do, you can get it with this command # apt-get install zlib* # # Now we're in the home stretch. Run these commands, and you should be golden. # ./configure make make install
And if all went well, you’ve compiled a delicious build of awffull. The binary will be sitting in the src directory, (in this case ~/awffull-3.8.1-beta3/src ) and should’ve been already copied to it’s new home at /usr/local/bin/awffull.
You can make a symbolic link to /usr/bin/awffull from /usr/local/bin/awffull if you want.
