Installing ACE (alternative to the package)

Download ACE from (full version!): http://download.dre.vanderbilt.edu/, then unpack it and prepare for the compilation. Build a symlink to config.h as (config.h is in ACE_wrappers/ace):

ln -s config-linux.h config.h

and (which can be found in ACE_wrappers/include/makeinclude):

ln -s platform_linux.GNU platform_macros.GNU

Define the environment variable $ACE_ROOT to point to where ACE was unpacked (e.g. ACE_wrappers).

Run make from $ACE_ROOT/ace (e.g. make debug=0 for no debug information). When done, you should see the .so libraries in $ACE_ROOT/lib.
