Default Murmur (Mumble VoIP) installation problems

Hey all,

I've recently found the Mumble project as I was assigned the task to
get me and my guild a voice server.. Ventrilo is allright, but it costs money
so it would be nice to try out something you can configure and handle
yourself..

So I found Mumble.

Seems awesome I must say, I've managed to get it installed with an RPM
package on Fedora 9, a package for Fc 8 though but it worked without problems..

Only problem I found at that point was that Murmur, the server part (Mumble is the client), uses
SQLite instead of MySQL which it can use.. So I thought, why not recompile
it with MySQL support, but thats about where I am now..

I've tried the Murmur support forum, but it seems like there are no activity
at all for like 2-3 months, so I guess people aren't that interested in the software?

Anyway, I've read about people who have managed to get MySQL to work
with Murmur, but none of them have explained or pointed out where to get
the information on how to do it. Therefore I've now come here to see if someone
here can help me out.

What I do know is that;
- Murmur, inside an RPM package works..
- When trying to follow the INSTALL doc, it says that I should use "qmake"
which isnt available on Fedora c9 ? Normal "make" doesnt seem to do it..

furthermore, I guess I should do something with the source before I "make"
it to include MySQL support?

are there some kind soul out there on the internet who have some experience
or at least some ideas on how to get this done?

I've read through lots of sites, but none seems to be interested in the MySQL
part.. and if I wouldnt be interested in that, I could have used the RPM package
for Fedora c8..

one thread connected to this;
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.p...orum_id=492607

another one, that I've replied to, without response so far;
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.p...orum_id=492607

hope that someone could help me out!
Thank you in advance, and keep up the good work with Howtoforge!

// Chris

According to http://rpm.pbone.net , qmake is available in the following packages: qt-devel, kdevelop, kdevelop-devel, gridengine, gridengine-debuginfo

I guess qt-devel is the right one, but if you are in doubt, you can install all these packages.

What's in the Murmur INSTALL file?

I am interested to know if you were able to resolve the issues with Mumble VoIP install. I might become involved in similar project but would want to know the support is available before investing time and effort.

It's been a while now, but to answer your question.
Yes I was able to install it, not by compiling however as that always gave
me some kind of error..

But I instead used the already compiled version and that worked like a charm.
Then I didn't get MySQL support, but I wrote an php app for the other
database instead and it worked as well.

Mumble is a great app, but be aware that in the past many antivirus programs
has reported this program as a malware / virus.

When asking the devs about this, they don't even reply to the question.
My thought about it is, that the server part has some kind of "malware"-like
source that isn't actually a malware but is needed to work with d-bus or
what it was called..

Something like that..

With that said, it did work very well and the sound quality is amazing.
But use it at your own risk
