+@subsection Introduction to building on MS Windows
+
+
+This document is a guide to building GNUnet and its dependencies on
+Windows platforms. GNUnet development is mostly done under GNU/Linux and
+especially git checkouts may not build out of the box.
+We regret any inconvenience, and if you have problems, please report
+them.
+
+@node Requirements
+@subsection Requirements
+
+The Howto is based upon a @strong{Windows Server 2008 32bit}
+@strong{Installation}, @strong{sbuild} and thus a
+@uref{http://www.mingw.org/wiki/MSYS, MSYS+MinGW}
+(W32-GCC-Compiler-Suite + Unix-like Userland) installation. sbuild
+is a convenient set of scripts which creates a working msys/mingw
+installation and installs most dependencies required for GNUnet.
+
+As of the point of the creation of these instructions,
+GNUnet @strong{requires} a Windows @strong{Server} 2003 or
+newer for full feature support.
+Windows Vista and later will also work, but
+@strong{non-server version can not run a VPN-Exit-Node} as the NAT
+features have been removed as of Windows Vista.
+
+@c TODO: We should document Windows 10!
+@c It seems like the situation hasn't changed with W10
+
+@node Dependencies & Initial Setup
+@subsection Dependencies & Initial Setup
+
+
+@itemize @bullet
+
+@item
+Install a fresh version of @strong{Python 2.x}, even if you are using a
+x64-OS, install a 32-bit version for use with sbuild.
+Python 3.0 is currently incompatible.
+
+@item
+Install your favorite @uref{http://code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/, git} &
+@uref{http://tortoisesvn.net/, subversion}-clients.
+
+@item
+You will also need some archive-manager like
+@uref{http://www.7-zip.org/, 7zip}.
+
+@item
+Pull a copy of sbuild to a directory of your choice, which will be used
+in the remainder of this guide. For now, we will use
+@file{c:\gnunet\sbuild\}
+
+@item
+in @file{sbuild\src\mingw\mingw32-buildall.sh}, comment out the packages
+@strong{gnunet-svn} and @strong{gnunet-gtk-svn}, as we don't want sbuild
+to compile/install those for us.
+
+@item
+Follow LRN's sbuild installation instructions.-
+@end itemize
+
+Please note that sbuild may (or will most likely) fail during
+installation, thus you really HAVE to @strong{check the logfiles} created
+during the installation process.
+Certain packages may fail to build initially due to missing dependencies,
+thus you may have to
+@strong{substitute those with binary-versions initially}. Later on once
+dependencies are satisfied you can re-build the newer package versions.
+
+@strong{It is normal that you may have to repeat this step multiple times
+and there is no uniform way to fix all compile-time issues, as the
+build-process of many of the dependencies installed are rather unstable
+on win32 and certain releases may not even compile at all.}
+
+Most dependencies for GNUnet have been set up by sbuild, thus we now
+should add the @file{bin/} directories in your new msys and mingw
+installations to PATH. You will want to create a backup of your finished
+msys-environment by now.
+
+@node GNUnet Installation
+@subsection GNUnet Installation
+
+First, we need to launch our msys-shell, you can do this via
+
+@file{C:\gnunet\sbuild\msys\msys.bat}
+
+You might wish to take a look at this file and adjust some
+login-parameters to your msys environment.
+
+Also, sbuild added two pointpoints to your msys-environment, though those
+might remain invisible:
+
+@itemize @bullet
+
+@item
+/mingw, which will mount your mingw-directory from sbuild/mingw and the
+other one is
+
+@item
+/src which contains all the installation sources sbuild just compiled.
+@end itemize
+
+Check out the current GNUnet sources (git HEAD) from the
+GNUnet repository "gnunet.git", we will do this in your home directory:
+
+@code{git clone https://gnunet.org/git/gnunet/ ~/gnunet}
+
+Now, we will first need to bootstrap the checked out installation and then
+configure it accordingly.
+
+@example
+cd ~/gnunet
+./bootstrap
+STRIP=true CPPFLAGS="-DUSE_IPV6=1 -DW32_VEH" CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -g -O2" \
+./configure --prefix=/ --docdir=/share/doc/gnunet \
+--with-libiconv-prefix=/mingw --with-libintl-prefix=/mingw \
+--with-libcurl=/mingw --with-extractor=/mingw --with-sqlite=/mingw \
+--with-microhttpd=/mingw --with-plibc=/mingw --enable-benchmarks \
+--enable-expensivetests --enable-experimental --with-qrencode=/mingw \
+--enable-silent-rules --enable-experimental 2>&1 | tee -a ./configure.log
+@end example
+
+The parameters above will configure for a reasonable GNUnet installation
+to the your msys-root directory.
+Depending on which features your would like to build or you may need to
+specify additional dependencies. Sbuild installed most libs into
+the /mingw subdirectory, so remember to prefix library locations with
+this path.
+
+Like on a unixoid system, you might want to use your home directory as
+prefix for your own GNUnet installation for development, without tainting
+the buildenvironment. Just change the "prefix" parameter to point towards
+~/ in this case.
+
+Now it's time to compile GNUnet as usual. Though this will take some time,
+so you may fetch yourself a coffee or some Mate now...
+
+@example
+make ; make install
+@end example
+
+@node Adjusting Windows for running and testing GNUnet
+@subsection Adjusting Windows for running and testing GNUnet
+
+Assuming the build succeeded and you
+@strong{added the bin directory of your GNUnet to PATH}, you can now use
+your gnunet-installation as usual.
+Remember that UAC or the windows firewall may popup initially, blocking
+further execution of gnunet until you acknowledge them.
+
+You will also have to take the usual steps to get peer-to-peer (p2p)
+software running properly (port forwarding, ...),
+and GNUnet will require administrative permissions as it may even
+install a device-driver (in case you are using gnunet-vpn and/or
+gnunet-exit).
+
+@node Building the GNUnet Installer
+@subsection Building the GNUnet Installer
+
+The GNUnet installer is made with
+@uref{http://nsis.sourceforge.net/, NSIS}.
+The installer script is located in @file{contrib\win} in the
+GNUnet source tree.

+
+@node Build instructions for Debian 7.5
+@section Build instructions for Debian 7.5
+
+
+These are the installation instructions for Debian 7.5. They were tested
+using a minimal, fresh Debian 7.5 AMD64 installation without non-free
+software (no contrib or non-free).
+By "minimal", we mean that during installation, we did not select any
+desktop environment, servers or system utilities during the "tasksel"
+step. Note that the packages and the dependencies that we will install
+during this chapter take about 1.5 GB of disk space.
+Combined with GNUnet and space for objects during compilation, you should
+not even attempt this unless you have about 2.5 GB free after the minimal
+Debian installation.
+Using these instructions to build a VM image is likely to require a
+minimum of 4-5 GB for the VM (as you will likely also want a desktop
+manager).
+
+GNUnet's security model assumes that your @file{/home} directory is
+encrypted. Thus, if possible, you should encrypt your home partition
+(or per-user home directory).
+
+Naturally, the exact details of the starting state for your installation
+should not matter much. For example, if you selected any of those
+installation groups you might simply already have some of the necessary
+packages installed.
+We did this for testing, as this way we are less likely to forget to
+mention a required package.
+Note that we will not install a desktop environment, but of course you
+will need to install one to use GNUnet's graphical user interfaces.
+Thus, it is suggested that you simply install the desktop environment of
+your choice before beginning with the instructions.

+@subsection Update
+
+After any installation, you should begin by running
+
+@example
+# apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade
+@end example
+
+to ensure that all of your packages are up-to-date. Note that the "#" is
+used to indicate that you need to type in this command as "root"
+(or prefix with "sudo"), whereas "$" is used to indicate typing in a
+command as a normal user.
+
+@node Stable? Hah!
+@subsection Stable? Hah!
+
+Yes, we said we start with a Debian 7.5 "stable" system. However, to
+reduce the amount of compilation by hand, we will begin by allowing the
+installation of packages from the testing and unstable distributions as
+well.
+We will stick to "stable" packages where possible, but some packages will
+be taken from the other distributions.
+Start by modifying @file{/etc/apt/sources.list} to contain the
+following (possibly adjusted to point to your mirror of choice):
+
+@example
+# These were there before:
+deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main
+deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main
+deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
+deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
+deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main
+deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main
+
+# Add these lines (feel free to adjust the mirror):
+deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ testing main
+deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
+@end example
+
+The next step is to create/edit your @file{/etc/apt/preferences}
+file to look like this:
+
+@example
+Package: *
+Pin: release a=stable,n=wheezy
+Pin-Priority: 700
+
+Package: *
+Pin: release o=Debian,a=testing
+Pin-Priority: 650
+
+Package: *
+Pin: release o=Debian,a=unstable
+Pin-Priority: 600
+@end example
+
+You can read more about Apt Preferences here and here.
+Note that other pinnings are likely to also work for GNUnet, the key
+thing is that you need some packages from unstable (as shown below).
+However, as unstable is unlikely to be comprehensive (missing packages)
+or might be problematic (crashing packages), you probably want others
+from stable and/or testing.
+
+@node Update again
+@subsection Update again
+
+Now, run again@
+
+@example
+# apt-get update@
+# apt-get upgrade@
+@end example
+
+to ensure that all your new distribution indices are downloaded, and
+that your pinning is correct: the upgrade step should cause no changes
+at all.
+
+@node Installing packages
+@subsection Installing packages
+
+We begin by installing a few Debian packages from stable:@
+
+@example
+# apt-get install gcc make python-zbar libltdl-dev libsqlite3-dev \
+ libunistring-dev libopus-dev libpulse-dev openssl libglpk-dev \
+ texlive libidn11-dev libmysqlclient-dev libpq-dev libarchive-dev \
+ libbz2-dev libexiv2-dev libflac-dev libgif-dev libglib2.0-dev \

+ libqrencode-dev libgladeui-dev nasm texlive-latex-extra \
+ libunique-3.0-dev gawk miniupnpc libfuse-dev libbluetooth-dev
+@end example
+
+After that, we install a few more packages from unstable:@
+
+@example
+# apt-get install -t unstable nettle-dev libgstreamer1.0-dev \
+ gstreamer1.0-plugins-base gstreamer1.0-plugins-good \
+ libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev
+@end example
+
+@node Installing dependencies from source
+@subsection Installing dependencies from source
+
+Next, we need to install a few dependencies from source.
+You might want to do this as a "normal" user and only run the
+@code{make install} steps as root (hence the @code{sudo} in the
+commands below). Also, you do this from any
+directory. We begin by downloading all dependencies, then extracting the
+sources, and finally compiling and installing the libraries.
+
+For these steps, follow the instructions given in the
+installation from source instruction in this order:
+
+@itemize @bullet
+@item @ref{generic source installation - libav}
+@item @ref{generic source installation - libextractor}
+@item @ref{generic source installation - libgpg-error}
+@item @ref{generic source installation - libgcrypt}
+@item @ref{generic source installation - gnutls}
+@item @ref{generic source installation - libmicrohttpd}
+@item @ref{generic source installation - libgnurl}
+@end itemize
+
+@node Installing GNUnet from source
+@subsection Installing GNUnet from source
+
+
+For this, simply follow the generic installation instructions from
+here.
+
+@node But wait there is more!
+@subsection But wait there is more!
+
+So far, we installed all of the packages and dependencies required to
+ensure that all of GNUnet would be built.
+However, while for example the plugins to interact with the MySQL or
+Postgres databases have been created, we did not actually install or
+configure those databases. Thus, you will need to install
+and configure those databases or stick with the default Sqlite database.
+Sqlite is usually fine for most applications, but MySQL can offer better
+performance and Postgres better resillience.

+@node Installing Dependencies from Source2
+@subsection Installing Dependencies from Source2
+
+Yes, we said we start with a Debian 8 "stable" system, but because Debian
+linked GnuTLS without support for DANE, we need to compile a few things,
+in addition to GNUnet, still by hand. Yes, you can run GNUnet using the
+respective Debian packages, but then you will not get DANE support.
+
+Next, we need to install a few dependencies from source. You might want
+to do this as a "normal" user and only run the @code{make install} steps
+as root (hence the @code{sudo} in the commands below). Also, you do this
+from any directory. We begin by downloading all dependencies, then
+extracting the sources, and finally compiling and installing the
+libraries:
+
+@example
+$ wget ftp://ftp.gnutls.org/gcrypt/gnutls/v3.3/gnutls-3.3.12.tar.xz
+$ tar xvf gnutls-3.3.12.tar.xz
+$ cd gnutls-3.3.12 ; ./configure ; make ; sudo make install ; cd ..
+@end example
+
+For the installation and compilation of libgnurl/gnURL refer to
+the generic installation section,
+@xref{generic source installation - libgnurl}.

+@subsection But wait (again) there is more!
+
+So far, we installed all of the packages and dependencies required to
+ensure that all of GNUnet would be built. However, while for example the
+plugins to interact with the MySQL or Postgres databases have been
+created, we did not actually install or configure those databases.
+Thus, you will need to install and configure those databases or stick
+with the default Sqlite database. Sqlite is usually fine for most
+applications, but MySQL can offer better performance and Postgres better
+resillience.

+
+@node Installing dependencies
+@subsection Installing dependencies
+
+First, install XCode in the newest version.
+See https://developer.apple.com/xcode/.
+
+Install Homebrew (https://brew.sh) and then install the dependencies listed above.
+If a dependency does not exists in brew, you need to compile it from source.
+
+@example
+# brew install <dependency>
+@end example
+
+@node Compile from Source
+@subsection Compile from Source
+
+Before you start building GNUnet, you need to setup your environment.
+This means that you have to make sure the proper tools are used in the build process.
+For example, after installing texinfo you need to make sure the new texinfo is actually used:
+
+@example
+# echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/opt/texinfo/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile
+@end example
+
+Note: brew tells you the appropriate command when executing
+
+@example
+# brew info texinfo
+@end example
+
+This may also be necessary for the gettext package.
+
+Before you start compiling, you need to make sure gcc is used and not the clang compile of your macOS system.
+On my system, gcc was actually ``gcc-7'' and gcc pointed to the clang compiler.
+
+@example
+# export CC=gcc-7
+@end example
+
+After this the standard compile instructions apply.

+@subsection Building GLPK for MinGW
+
+GNUnet now requires the GNU Linear Programming Kit (GLPK).
+Since there's is no package you can install with @code{mingw-get} you
+have to compile it from source:
+
+@itemize @bullet
+
+@item Download the latest version from
+@uref{http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/glpk/}
+
+@item Unzip the downloaded source tarball using your favourite
+unzipper application In the MSYS shell
+
+@item change to the respective directory
+
+@item Configure glpk for "i686-pc-mingw32":
+
+@example
+./configure '--build=i686-pc-mingw32'
+@end example
+
+@item run
+
+@example
+make install check
+@end example

+
+This document is a @b{DEPRECATED} installation guide for GNUnet on

+It will not work for recent GNUnet versions, but maybe it will be of
+some use if problems arise.
+
+The Windows build uses a UNIX emulator for Windows,
+@uref{http://www.mingw.org/, MinGW}, to build the executable modules.
+These modules run natively on Windows and do not require additional
+emulation software besides the usual dependencies.
+
+GNUnet development is mostly done under GNU/Linux and especially git
+checkouts may not build out of the box.

+@node Build instructions for Gentoo
+@subsection Build instructions for Gentoo
+
+
+This page describes how to install GNUnet 0.9 on Gentoo.
+
+Since the GNUnet 0.9 ebuilds are not in the official portage tree yet, we need
+to add them to the local portage overlay. All the commands below should be
+executed as root.
+
+Specify your local portage directory in the /etc/make.conf, for example:@
+@code{$ echo 'PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"' >> /etc/make.conf}
+
+Create directories for the ebuilds:@
+@code{$ mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/media-libs/libextractor /usr/local/portage/net-p2p/gnunet/files}
+
+Download the latest ebuilds, init and config files from here and put them into
+respective directories:@
+@code{$ cp libextractor-0.6.2.ebuild /usr/local/portage/media-libs/libextractor@
+ $ cp gnunet-0.9.2.ebuild /usr/local/portage/net-p2p/gnunet@
+ $ cp gnunet-0.9.2.conf gnunet-0.9.2.confd gnunet-0.9.2.initd /usr/local/portage/net-p2p/gnunet/files}
+
+Generate Manifest files for the ebuilds:@
+@code{$ cd /usr/local/portage/net-p2p/gnunet@
+ $ ebuild gnunet-0.9.2.ebuild digest@
+ $ cd /usr/local/portage/media-libs/libextractor@
+ $ ebuild libextractor-0.6.2.ebuild digest}
+
+Unmask GNUnet and dependencies in the /etc/portage/package.keywords. For
+example, if you use x86-64 architecture, add the following lines:@
+@code{net-p2p/gnunet ~amd64@
+ media-libs/libextractor ~amd64@
+ net-libs/libmicrohttpd ~amd64@
+ net-misc/curl ~amd64}

+@node Build instructions for FreeBSD 8
+@subsection Build instructions for FreeBSD 8
+
+To get GNUnet 0.9 to compile on FreeBSD (at least FreeBSD 8.0):@ in order to
+install the library @code{libiconv}, at first change the directory to your
+ports directory, e.g.@
+@code{@
+ $ cd /usr/ports/@
+}@
+ following that, go to the install file of @code{libiconv} and install it,@
+@code{@
+ $ cd converters/libiconv,@
+ $ make install@
+}
+
+after that, change the directory to where you will check out
+@code{libextractor} and GNUnet, and install latest @code{libextractor},@
+ first of all, checkout @code{libextractor}, e.g.@
+@code{@
+ $ svn co https://gnunet.org/svn/Extractor@
+}@
+ then change the directory into which it was checked out, e.g.@
+@code{@
+ $ cd Extractor@
+}@
+ before the installation, you should do following steps,@
+
+@example
+$ ./bootstrap@
+$ ./configure --with-ltdl-include=/usr/local/include \
+ --with-ltdl-lib=/usr/local/lib@
+@end example
+
+if these steps complete successfully, you can install the library,@
+
+@example
+$ make install@
+@end example
+
+to check out the GNUnet, you should do the similar steps as
+@code{libextractor}, firstly, change back to starting directory, e.g.@
+@code{@
+ $ cd ../@
+}@
+ Set the following environmental variables:@
+@code{@
+ export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include"@
+ export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"@
+}@
+ next, checkout GNUnet using@
+@code{@
+ $ svn co https://gnunet.org/svn/gnunet@
+}@
+ then change directory into newly checked out directory,@
+@code{@
+ $ cd gnunet@
+}@
+ at last, start to install GNUnet,@
+
+@example
+ $ ./bootstrap@
+ $ ./configure --with-ltdl-include=/usr/local/include \
+ --with-ltdl-lib=/usr/local/lib --with-extractor=/usr/local

+@node Basic installation for Mac OS X
+@subsection Basic installation for Mac OS X
+
+This documentation may be outdated!
+
+This page is providing guidelines for users trying to install GNUnet on Mac OS
+X.@ Mainly users trying to install GNUnet by building source code are the most
+welcome readers.@ The steps below are tested on an Intel Architecture running
+Mac OS X Tiger (10.4.11). Ideally they should work on other Mac boxes with
+different configurations as all the configuration done for it is dependent on
+@uref{http://www.macports.org/, MacPorts}
+
+For having GNUnet installed successfully, some dependencies should be firstly
+resolved:
+
+@itemize @bullet
+
+@item
+Install/Update your @uref{http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/, Xcode}
+version 3.2.1 or later for Snow Leopard, 3.1.4 or later for Leopard, or 2.5 for
+Tiger.
+
+@item
+Download and install @uref{http://www.macports.org/, MacPorts}.@
+Now you are ready for installing GNunet dependencies.
+
+@item
+First, you'd better make sure that: /opt/local/bin and /opt/local/sbin are
+available in your PATH. (For doing so, open a terminal and type:@
+
+@example
+$ echo $PATH
+@end example
+
+and examine the output of it). If the paths are not available in your
+environment, you have to add them (You can add them by editing your .profile
+file in your home directory, append them to the PATH line). Then type:
+@example
+$ source ~/.profile
+@end example
+
+and re-examine the echo command output.
+
+@item
+Use MacPorts to download and install the dependencies:@
+The libraries are:
+
+@itemize @bullet
+
+@item
+@uref{http://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/www/libmicrohttpd/Portfile, libmicrohttpd.}
+
+@item
+@uref{http://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/devel/libgcrypt/Portfile, libgcrypt.}
+
+@item
+@uref{http://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/net/curl/Portfile, libcurl.}
+
+@item
+@uref{http://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/devel/libtool/Portfile, libltdl.}
+
+@item
+@uref{http://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/databases/sqlite3/Portfile, SQlite.}
+
+@item
+libunistring
+
+@item
+glpk
+
+@end itemize
+
+The port command is as follows:@
+@example
+port install libmicrohttpd libgcrypt curl libtool sqlite3 linunistring glpk
+@end example
+One of the dependencies, the libextractor, should be explicitly installed,
+since the version available from macports is outdated to work with GNUnet. To
+install the latest libextractor:
+@itemize @bullet
+
+
+@item
+Install the Subversion Client:@
+For more information about Subversion visit:
+@uref{http://subversion.tigris.org/, http://subversion.tigris.org/}
+
+@example
+# port install subversion
+@end example
+
+
+@item
+Use Subversion to download the latest Extractor:
+@example
+$ svn checkout https://gnunet.org/svn/Extractor
+@end example
+
+
+@item
+Go to the installation directory of the Extractor, compile and install it:
+@example
+$ ./bootstrap
+$ export CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include"
+$ export LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib"
+$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/local
+$ make
+# make install
+@end example
+
+@end itemize
+
+
+@item
+Now, your system is ready to install GNunet. If you downloaded GNUnet by
+checking it out from svn, you should start by running the bootstrap script.
+Open a terminal pointing to the GNUnet directory and type:@
+
+@example
+$ ./bootstrap
+@end example
+
+
+@item
+Run the configure script:
+@example
+$ export CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include"
+$ export LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib"
+$ ./configure --prefix=/tmp/gnunet_build
+@end example
+
+
+GNUnet will be installed in the directory /tmp/gnunet_build (Of course that
+installation path can be changed).@ The CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS are mentioned in
+order to inform the compiler and the linker to lookup headers and libraries in
+/opt/local/include and /opt/local/lib.
+
+@item
+Compile@
+
+@example
+$ make
+@end example
+
+
+@item
+Install GNUnet
+@example
+# make install
