2.3 Building from Sources

Percival builds are done automagically from the unified source base. Still it should be perfectly possible to build Percival from its stand alone components. Percival expects to find its supporting packages at /usr/local/avalon. First, you will need Perl and following list of packages:

Then you need to have apache and mod_perl installed. We use following packages:

After you have done with apache you have to build rrdtool that comes with Percival. Percival will not work with the standard rrdtool. You have to download rrdtool-1.0.28avalon.tar.gz from the Percival site and install it.

Finally, you have to untar Percival-Source.tar.gz
