This is the top level directory. To build the system: cd src sh config.sh /your/directory sh makeall be sure to update ld.so.conf and run ldconfig! Requirements: -lcrypto -lssl -lcrypt -lmysqlclient_r -lxml2 -lxml++-3.0 -lglibmm-2.4 -lpthread -lLabJackM -llog4cpp -llabjackusb other XML library versions should work too. Build the database: mysql -u youruser -p -D yourDB < scripts/sql.sh Create the Channel Types: This is used to auto load the channels for a new interface and translating fio/name for the U3. mysql -u youruser -p -D yourDB load data local infile "scripts/channel_types" into table channel_types; Update the config file: cd conf vi dss.conf and edit database entries and interface entries If you want to use the Host System, signon to dwanta.com and get the siteID, companyID, dpsID, and password_encrypted and update dss.conf. Update the sendalert script: cd scripts vi sendalert Run the system: cd bin ./dssClient & The logs should be in /var/logs/user.log or whatever is configured in the log4cpp.properties file in bin. If everything is set up correctly the interfaces will auto load the channels into the database on the initial run and it will monitor all channels.
