# Building from Source
- [Requirements](#requirements)
- [Basic instructions](#basic-instructions)
- [QEMU Driver](#qemu-driver)
## Requirements
- gcc and g++ 8 or newer, clang 10 or newer, or other compiler with C++11 plus
designated initializers support from C++20
- CMake
- liburing, jerasure headers
- tcmalloc (google-perftools-dev)
## Basic instructions
Download source, for example using git: `git clone --recurse-submodules`
Get `fio` source and symlink it into `<vitastor>/fio`. If you don't want to build fio engine,
you can disable it by passing `-DWITH_FIO=no` to cmake.
Build and install Vitastor:
cd vitastor
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. && make -j8 install
## QEMU Driver
It's recommended to build the QEMU driver (qemu_driver.c) in-tree, as a part of
QEMU build process. To do that:
- Install vitastor client library headers (from source or from vitastor-client-dev package)
- Take a corresponding patch from `patches/qemu-*-vitastor.patch` and apply it to QEMU source
- Copy `src/qemu_driver.c` to QEMU source directory as `block/block-vitastor.c`
- Build QEMU as usual
But it is also possible to build it out-of-tree. To do that:
- Get QEMU source, begin to build it, stop the build and copy headers:
- `<qemu>/include` &rarr; `<vitastor>/qemu/include`
- Debian:
* Use qemu packages from the main repository
* `<qemu>/b/qemu/config-host.h` &rarr; `<vitastor>/qemu/b/qemu/config-host.h`
* `<qemu>/b/qemu/qapi` &rarr; `<vitastor>/qemu/b/qemu/qapi`
- CentOS 8:
* Use qemu packages from the Advanced-Virtualization repository. To enable it, run
`yum install centos-release-advanced-virtualization.noarch` and then `yum install qemu`
* `<qemu>/config-host.h` &rarr; `<vitastor>/qemu/b/qemu/config-host.h`
* For QEMU 3.0+: `<qemu>/qapi` &rarr; `<vitastor>/qemu/b/qemu/qapi`
* For QEMU 2.0+: `<qemu>/qapi-types.h` &rarr; `<vitastor>/qemu/b/qemu/qapi-types.h`
- `config-host.h` and `qapi` are required because they contain generated headers
- Configure Vitastor with `WITH_QEMU=yes` and, if you're on RHEL, also with `QEMU_PLUGINDIR=qemu-kvm`:
`cmake .. -DWITH_QEMU=yes`.
- After that, Vitastor will build `` during its build process.
- This way you can use the driver even with unmodified QEMU, but you'll need to set
environment variable `LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qemu/`
and Vitastor disks won't work in QAPI and in "new" JSON syntax `-blockdev` in this case.
