Only valid for pgRouting v1.x. For pgRouting v2.0 or higher see http://docs.pgrouting.org
For pgRouting version >= 1.0 RC1 (Previous versions cannot be compiled without TSP and Driving Distance functionality)
Compile and install PostgreSQL, PostGIS, Proj, GEOS, BGL and GAUL. Usually it is sufficient to run:
# ./configure # make # make install
in corresponding directory.
If you have BGL installed but the version is less than 1.33.0, just download the astar.hpp file from http://www.boost.org/boost/graph/astar_search.hpp and copy it to ‘’BOOST_PATH/graph’’ directory.
For Traveling Salesperson Problem (optional)
The GAUL library should be compiled with –enable-slang=no option. Otherwise make sure you have slang.h installed in ‘’/usr/include’‘. For more details please refer to corresponding ‘’README’’ or ‘’INSTALL’’ file.
# ./configure --disable-slang
For Driving Distance (optional)
For CGAL, the compile option below can be used to create the library:
# ./install_cgal --prefix=/usr --with-boost=n --without-autofind -ni /usr/bin/g++
CGAL needs special treatment!
After you install CGAL, you need to locate the directory with CGAL header files. In that directory you need to find ‘’config’’ subdirectory. This directory contains one or more subdirectories with platform-dependent information.
It may look like this, for example:
/ | +- usr | +- include | +- CGAL | +- config | +- i686_Linux-2.6_g++4.1.1 | | | +- CGAL | | | +- compiler_config.h <<< this is the file you need | +- msvc7 | | | +- CGAL | | | +- compiler_config.h | etc...
All you need to do is to choose ‘’compiler_config.h’’ for your platform and make a symlink or copy it to the main headers directory.
# ln -s /usr/include/CGAL/config/i686_Linux-2.6_g++4.1.1/compiler_config.h /usr/include/CGAL/compiler_config.h
For pgRouting core (required)
cmake . make make install
For pgRouting extras (optional)
# Add Traveling Salesperson functionality: -DWITH_TSP=ON # Add Driving Distance functionality : -DWITH_DD=ON cmake -DWITH_TSP=ON -DWITH_DD=ON . make make install
If your program compiles but you get an error like the following one:
error while loading shared libraries: libgaul.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Maybe you installed PostgreSQL from Source-code, while compiling pgRouting you might get an error like
Output directory for libraries is set to sh: pg_config: command not found .... .... ERROR: could not access file "$libdir/librouting
Then you need to type at the shell-console:
presuming you installed PostgreSQL at /usr/local/pgsql/bin
