February 6th, 2009 15 comments

Howto setup SquidGuard 1.4
(check out my howto on SQUID)
Requirements:
* Bison
* Flex
* Berkeley DB V.2.7.7, V3.2.x or 4.x (original site: www.oracle.com/database/berkeley-db/index.html).
Annotation: Berkeley DB version 4.7 gives error messages during compilation. Up to version 4.6 the compilation runs fine.
* A C compiler like GCC
Lets start it:
# apt-get install bison flex
We also need the berkeley-db (recommend is version 4.6)
# wget http://www.xoroz.com/files/db-4.6.21.tar.gz
# tar -zxvf http://www.xoroz.com/files/db-4.6.21.tar.gz
cd db-46..
cd build_unix
../dist/configure –prefix /usr/local/BerkeleyDB
This will build the Berkeley DB library.
# make
To install the Berkeley DB library, enter the following command:
# make install
Update our library (debian)
# echo “/usr/local/BerkeleyDB/lib” >> /etc/ld.so.conf
# ldconfig
Confirm its there
# ldconfig -v | grep libdb-4
(After updating, I erased he entry from ld.so.conf)
