If the native compiler toolset for the target platform is available (for example, SunStudio for Solaris), you can use that for compilation. Alternatively, the GNU toolset can be used on all platforms.
You also need CMake 2.6 or newer, which is available from cmake.org.
To build and install the source distribution, use the following procedure:
Change location to the top-level directory of the source distribution.
shell> cmake -G "Unix Makefiles"
Or, for a Debug build:
shell> cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
By default, the installation location for Connector/C is
/usr/local/mysql. To change this location, use the
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIXoption to specify a different directory when generating the
Makefile. For example:
shell> cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/local/mysql
For other CMake options that you might find useful, see Other Connector/C Build Options.
Build the project:
root, install the Connector/C headers, libraries, and utilities:
root-shell> make install
