Refer to the yum documentation for more information. Note that mcpp-devel is only required when building Ice from source.

With up2date

Configure up2date to use the zeroc-ice yum repository, by adding

yum zeroc-ice http://www.zeroc.com/download/Ice/3.3/rhel4/$ARCH/

at the end of your /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources file. Then import the ZeroC GPG release key with:

# rpm --import http://www.zeroc.com/download/RPM-GPG-KEY-zeroc-release

You can view the packages available on the zeroc-ice channel with:

# up2date --installall=zeroc-ice --dry-run

Third-Party Dependencies

On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.6, the PHP language mapping relies on third-party packages that are not available in the standard distribution. You only need to install these dependencies if you plan to use this language mapping:

  • php-5.1.6
  • php-devel-5.1.6
  • php-pear-1.4.9

On SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP1, the minimum requirement for Ice for .NET is Mono 1.2.6.

Source Distributions

Ice-3.3.1.tar.gz
Ice-3.3.1.zip

The complete Ice source code for all language mappings. If you are interested in building Ice for a language other than C++, you must first compile Ice for C++ or, alternatively, download and install an appropriate binary distribution. This is necessary because the Slice compilers and scripting language extensions are written in C++.

For compatibility information, please refer to our list of supported platforms.

Source RPM

ice-3.3.1-1.src.rpm

A source RPM that allows you to build the binary RPMs for Ice. For build instructions, please refer to Ice-3.3.1-RPM_README.

Third-Party Source Code

ThirdParty-Sources-3.3.1.tar.gz (Linux/Unix/MacOS X)
ThirdParty-Sources-3.3.1.zip (Windows)

The source code for the third-party software that Ice depends on, including patches and build instructions. (You do not need to download this archive unless you want to build these third-party packages from source code yourself.)

Berkeley DB Source RPM

db46-4.6.21-3ice.src.rpm

Sources for the Berkeley DB 4.6.21 RPM included with the Linux binary RPMs.

MCPP Source RPM
