For Channel Archiver installation refer to Channel Archiver Manual, Chapter 8: Setup, Installation.
On Scientific Linux (version 4.1, gcc 3.4.3) the following should be taken in account in addition to Channel Archive Manual’s instructions:
The w3c-libwww sources supplied with archiver did compile but xmlrpc’s configure didn’t find it (probably path/location issues). I just grabbed the package from internet and it worked ok;
su -c "yum install w3c-libwww-devel"
I applied both patches mentioned in the manual and changed line 104 in extensions/src/ChannelArchiver/ThirdParty/xmlrpc-c-0.9.9/src/validatee.c where
was changed to
in order to prevent compiler error.
as mentioned in manual.
XML-Simple and Frontier
Worked exactly as described in the manual.
Some general notes
/usr/local/bin is not by default included in path which causes archiver making (when calling xmlrpc-c-config) to fail. Just
I omited ‘o’ switch when extracting third party archives to prevent “Cannot change ownership” errors.
Remember to run make in extensions/configure prior to making ChannelArchiver.
