How To Build Virtuoso Open Source (VOS) for Your Deployment

Upgrading existing installations

To upgrade a previous installation of Virtuoso Open-Source Edition and OpenLink Data Spaces, see Upgrading Instructions.

Building for Linux or other Unix-like OS

Specific Linux Distributions

We have documentation customized for the following Linux distributions:

Building for Windows

A separate page for building Virtuoso on Windows exists.

That said, the build process on Windows is rather more complex than on other platforms, so these pre-built Windows packages are available --

VOS version 64-bit (x86_64) 32-bit (x86)
v7.2.0 (as of 2015-02-11) virtuoso-opensource-7.2.0.tar.gz not available
v6.1.8 (as of 2013-12-11)

You can manually browse to locate pre-built binaries of other versions.)

Building Virtuoso Extensions

The Virtuoso Server can be built with extensions for hosting different web scripting languages, virtual machines, and/or function libraries.

The links below list version requirements and the procedures for building these.

Special Executables

Hosting a virtual machine, such as Java or the CLR, requires building a special executable linked with the virtual machine and special interface code.
