Q4M becomes part of FreeBSD Ports Collection
If you are using FreeBSD, Q4M can be installed by following the steps below.
# cd /usr/ports/databases/mysql-q4m # make install # echo 'mysql_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server start # mysql -u root -f mysql < work/q4m-0.8.3/support-files/install.sql
Running either cvsup or portsnap might be necessary to update the installed ports collection to the newest state. Since the port depends on mysql51-server, you should make deinstall if an older version of mysql is already installed via the ports collection. If you want to test the installation, type:
# chmod 755 work/q4m-0.8.3/support-files/q4m-forward # make test
The chmod seems to be necessary due to the fact that the install script for non-executable files of the ports collection drops the execution bits. Since there is no particular reason for keeping q4m-forward in the support-files directory, I plan to move it to somewhere else in the next release of Q4M.
