From precompiled binaries


You can install binary packages from the latest release page.

Building from source


For building pboted you need several things:

  • compiler with c++17 support (for example: gcc >= 5, clang >= 5)
  • cmake >= 3.7
  • mimetic >= 0.9.8
  • boost >= 1.62 (program_options)
  • openssl >= 1.1.1
  • zlib (openssl already depends on it)

Building on UNIX-like systems

Supported systems:

Make sure you have all required dependencies successfully installed.
See for common requirements in this section.

  • Clone repository:
git clone
cd pboted
  • Build:
cd build
cmake <cmake options> . # See "CMake Options" section below
make                    # You may add VERBOSE=1 to cmdline for debugging

CMake Options

Available CMake options(each option has a form of -D<key>=<value>, for more information see man 1 cmake):

Option Description Default
CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE Build profile (Debug/Release) No optimization or debug symbols
CONTROL_SOCKET Use UNIX socket in control module ON
WITH_STATIC Build static pboted binary OFF
WITH_CXX11 Force C++11 OFF and higher available from both
WITH_CXX17 Force C++17 OFF and higher available from both

Also there is -L flag for CMake that could be used to list current cached options:

cmake -L
Force GCC
CC=gcc CXX=g++ cmake .
Force Clang
CC=clang CXX=clang++ cmake .



Tested with Debian 10 and Ubuntu 20.04

You will need a compiler and other tools that could be installed with build-essential and debhelper packages:

sudo apt install git cmake build-essential debhelper

Also you will need a bunch of development libraries:

sudo apt install \
  libboost-program-options-dev \
  libmimetic-dev \
  libssl-dev \
  pkg-config \

You may also build DEB-package with the following:

sudo apt install fakeroot devscripts dh-apparmor
cd pboted
debuild --no-tgz-check -us -uc -b



Tested with Fedora 36

Install required tools and libraries:

sudo dnf install cmake mimetic boost g++ boost-devel mimetic-devel
