Installing on Unix
To build by hand on a UNIX system you need to perform two steps:
- Install pre-requisite software and perl modules
- Install the DNSSEC-Tools software itself
Installing CPAN Modules
Perl distributes it's optional modules through the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN) system. All recent copies of perl have a built in mechanism to help find and install those modules. To install these needed modules, run the following commands as root:
perl -MCPAN -e "install 'Date::Parse'" perl -MCPAN -e "install 'Net::DNS'" perl -MCPAN -e "install 'Net::DNS::SEC'"
You may wish to Install the Optional PERL Modules as well, but it is not required.
Building and Installing DNSSEC-Tools
To compile the DNSSEC-Tools package from source, you'll need to perform the following steps:
- Get the latest source code
- gtar xzf dnssec-tools-*.tar.gz
- cd dnssec-tools-*
- make install
Once installed you may need to modify your run time load path to ensure that it includes the /usr/local/lib directory in it's library search path.
