Openslp README =============== 1 - Introduction 2 - Roadmap 3 - Build 4 - Install 5 - Users Guide 6 - Developers Guide 7 - FAQ 1 - Introduction ----------------- The OpenSLP project is an effort to develop an open-source implementation of Service Location Protocol suitable for commercial and non-commercial application. OpenSLP 1.3.0 is a develper release of the cutting edge OpenSLP code. If you are looking for a stable release, you should download the latest revision of the 1.2.x series. OpenSLP 1.2.1 is the second release of the 1.2.x series. This release contains several bug fixes - mostly accumlated through the efforts of the SuSE team in Germany. However, others have contributed as well over time. Known Issues: - This code works on Linux and Windows, but has not been thoroughly tested on Solaris or other platforms. Please help out in this respect. Please feel free to send patches for your OS directly to me or to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list. 2 - Roadmap ------------ For more information about the roadmap for OpenSLP 1.2.x please take a look at http://www.openslp.org/roadmap.html 3 - Building OpenSLP --------------------- Building OpenSLP requires the proper installation of automake, autoconf and libtool. To build OpenSLP please use the following steps: - Unzip and untar the openslp-x.x.x.tar.gz tarball. $ tar -zxf openslp-x.x.x.tar.gz - Run the autogen.sh script to generate configure script. Do not be alarmed if the autogen script prints a few errors. Try the resulting configure (next step) script anyway. If the ./configure script already exists, skip running ./autogen.sh $ cd openslp-x.x.x $ ./autogen.sh - Run the configure script to create openslp make files. Please note that the configure script accepts several --enable-xxxx and --disable-xxxx options that should be interesting to you. Run ./configure --help and read the details of each of these switches. If the configure script fails... now you have a problem. $ ./configure --help $ ./configure - Run the top level make file (you need to use GNU make) $ make - If the make is successful, look for the following binaries: slpd/slpd libslp/.libs/libslp.so test/.libs/* 4 - Installing OpenSLP ----------------------- To install OpenSLP make the install target in the top level make file $ make install Installation of OpenSLP creates the following files: /usr/sbin/slpd /usr/lib/libslp.so.x.x (and several appropriate links) /usr/lib/libslp.a /etc/slp.conf (old slp.conf is renamed) /etc/slp.reg (old slp.reg is renamed) 5 - OpenSLP Users Guide ------------------------ Rather than be repetitive in this document, the reader is refered to a fairly complete OpenSLP users guide that is available in the doc/html directory of the OpenSLP distribution or on the web at: http://www.openslp.org/doc/html/UsersGuide The OpenSLp users guide gives instruction on how network and system administrators should configure and use OpenSLP once it is installed 6 - OpenSLP Programmers Guide ------------------------------ Again, to avoid repetition, the reader is refered to a the Programmers Guide available in the doc/html directory of the OpenSLP distribution or on the web at: http://www.openslp.org/doc/html/ProgrammersGuide 7 - FAQ -------- The frequently asked questions have been moved to a faq.html file located in the doc directory of the OpenSLP tarball.
