This is the usual process for any Gated distribution prior
to version 3.6. If you want to use this process on the 3.6 or later
distributions you first need to replace the generic Makefile in the
cp Makefile.org Makefile
and then follow the instructions:
Create an object directory,
src/util/archtype directly to display the
architecture. If you will never compile GateD on a second
architecture you can use obj. For example, on a Sun
SPARCstation running SunOS 4.1.1:
On BSD 4.3 Reno and later obj directories are supported
in the format the system sources use. This support is not
direct, but a hack. On these systems you will need to specify
the full path to some directories, for an example see
Build a config file. This file is used as input to a
configuration script which builds a Makefile and system specific
A description of config file options is available in
Examples of quite a few config files are in
src/configs, pick the one that is closest to what
you want and tailor it to your specific configuration. Install
this config file in the previously created object directory with
the name Config.
Configure GateD for this architecture by typing ' make
config'. This will run an awk script on your
obj.`src/util/archtype`/Config file which builds a
sed script. This sed script is used to edit a Makefile template.
The Makefile is then run to configure architecture specific
files, create symbolic links, and dependencies. make config
must be run in the src directory.
Build GateD by typing make in the src directory or
the object directory.
Become root and install GateD: ' make install' in the
src or object directory. Then optionally type make
install-man in the same directory to install the man
Make up a configuration file. Sample config files are in the
conf directory and the man page explains all config options.
Install the config file in /etc/gated.conf.
