Hi,Brave... it's not completely straightforward.
I am trying to install and run interchange on my FreeBSD server.
vlink does NOT seem to be compiled by the port installation process. You need to compile it explicitly yourself as a second step.I first updated the ports directory-> succesful. Then I did a "make -DCHECK_FOR_IC_USER all install". This went all well. A new user and group (interch) is added and it seems that it is installed properly. Next thing to do is creating a new catalog for interchange. Therfor I did the following:
% cd /usr/local % bin/makecat
A wizzard starts and I accepted all the defaults. And somewhere the wizzard is asking for the location of "vlink".
No, you found files named:As I did not know what the right thing to do was. I searched for this file and found it in
compile.pl mod_perl_tlink.pl tlink.pl config.h.in mvctl.c vlink.c configure syscfg.in vlink.pl cpan_local_install testcgi mod_interchange tlink.c
Either go into this directory and compile vlink, or use the perl script tlink. The makecat process just copies one of these files to your cgi-bin and renames it foundation, or whatever.
Interchange is a swine, in many ways. I run it myself for several clients, on FreeBSD. If you need more help, maybe mail me off-list becaus this is interchange, not FreeBSD. It's also a swine on Linux.
