Cross-compile ActiveMQ-cpp on Centos 5

To date an RPM for activemq-cpp is not available for Centos 5. I found RPMs in Fedora 13 and 14 repositories, but due to dependencies on fresher libs, they won't install.

Building for 32 bit architecture on 64 bit Centos 5 was a bit tricky. Here's the recipe I came up with that worked for me:

Install dependencies:


yum install expat-devel zlib-devel uuid-c++-devel openssl-devel


Download sources from here or other mirrors:


wget http://www.carfab.com/apachesoftware/activemq/activemq-cpp/source/activemq-cpp-library-3.2.1-src.tar.gz
wget http://mirror.candidhosting.com/pub/apache/apr/apr-1.4.2.tar.gz


Extract archives and build APR first. Note PKG_CONFIG_PATH, as this is one of the keys to ensuring that lib64 libraries are not found during link step.


[root@myserver] cd apr-1.4.2
[root@myserver] ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib CXXFLAGS="-m32" LDFLAGS="-m32" CFLAGS="-m32" --build=i686-redhat-linux-gnu PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig
[root@myserver] ./make
[root@myserver] ./make install


Next build and install ActiveMQ-cpp:


[root@myserver] cd ../activemq-cpp-library-3.2.1
[root@myserver] ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib CXXFLAGS="-m32" LDFLAGS="-m32" CFLAGS="-m32" --build=i686-redhat-linux-gnu PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig --with-apr=../apr-1.4.2/apr-1-config
[root@myserver] ./make
[root@myserver] ./make install

Upon running a program that uses active-mq-library-3.2.1 built using the steps above, I got a core dump. There are fixes in the 3.2.x fixes branch, but that branch requires a newer version of autoconf than is available from repo for Centos 5. You can apply this patch to fix the issue:

Hi Devin,

for x-compiling activemq on centos, May I ask how do you get the uuid-c++-devel package? It's not available anywhere on yum.

Thank you!!

Joe
