Step 4: Compiling the Source

After using the configure command, you may begin compiling the PostgreSQL source by entering the gmake command.

Note: On Linux machines, you should be able to use make instead of gmake . BSD users should use gnumake .

Example 2-7. Compiling the source with GNU make

[postgres@host postgresql-7.1.3]# 

gmake -C doc all
gmake[1]: Entering directory /usr/local/src/postgresql-7.1.3/doc'
gmake[1]: Nothing to be done for all'.
gmake[1]: Leaving directory /usr/local/src/postgresql-7.1.3/doc'
gmake -C src all
gmake[1]: Entering directory /usr/local/src/postgresql-7.1.3/src'
gmake -C backend all
gmake[2]: Entering directory /usr/local/src/postgresql-7.1.3/src/backend'
gmake -C utils fmgroids.h
gmake[3]: Entering directory /usr/local/src/postgresql-7.1.3/src/backend/utils'

At this point, depending on the speed of your machine, you may want to get some coffee because the PostgreSQL compilation could take 10 minutes, an hour, or even more. After the compilation has finished, the following message should appear:

All of PostgreSQL is successfully made.  Ready to install.
