When installing CentOS 5 set the default installation to Server and select Customise now. Ensure the following are selected:

In Development menu:

Development Libraries
Development Tools

In Servers menu:

MySQL Database

In Base System menu:


Once installed I generally disable/turn off the following but adjust for your installation:

In Firewall configuration

Security Level: Disabled
SELinux: Disabled

Once the OS has been installed run:

yum update

The following items need to be removed if they have been installed:

yum remove ImageMagick

Next mysql needs to be configured and started:
add to /etc/my.cnf :


then run
chkconfig mysqld on
service mysqld start

Install the rpmforge repo (or latest):
wget http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.i386.rpm

Edit /etc/rc.local:

/usr/lib/openoffice.org3/program/soffice “-accept=socket,host=localhost,port=8100;urp;StarOffice.ServiceManager” -nologo -headless -nofirststartwizard &

Next all of the various dependancies need to be installed:

yum install freetype freetype-devel fontconfig fontconfig-devel java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel libtiff libtiff-devel libjpeg-devel libjpeg giflib giflib-devel libpaper libpaper-devel xml-commons-apis libpng libpng-devel libxml2 libxml2-devel fftw3 fftw3-devel screen cairo cairo-devel flac flac-devel wavpack wavpack-devel libsndfile libsndfile-devel libmad libmad-devel yasm-devel yasm gcc gcc-c++ sox

Install the required OpenOffice products:

yum groupinstall 'Office/Productivity'
yum install openoffice.org-headless

Remove the CentOS RPM versions of ghostscript and ghostscript-devel:

yum remove ghostscript ghostscript-devel

Now we need to download the latest versions of certain programs and manually build and install:


cd /usr/src
wget http://ghostscript.com/releases/ghostscript-8.71.tar.gz
tar zxvf ghostscript-8.71.tar.gz
cd ghostscript-8.71
./configure --prefix=/usr
mkdir obj
mkdir bin
make all
make install


cd /usr/src
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/lame/lame/3.98.4/lame-3.98.4.tar.gz
tar zxvf lame-3.98.4.tar.gz
cd lame-3.98.4
./configure --prefix=/usr
make all
make install


cd /usr/src
wget http://www.swftools.org/swftools-0.9.1.tar.gz
tar zxvf swftools-0.9.1.tar.gz
cd swftools-0.9.1
./configure --prefix=/usr
make all
make install


cd /usr/src
wget ftp://ftp.imagemagick.org/pub/ImageMagick/ImageMagick-6.6.9-7.tar.gz
tar zxvf ImageMagick-6.6.9-7.tar.gz
cd ImageMagick-6.6.9-7
./configure --prefix=/usr
make all
make install


cd /usr/src
svn checkout svn://svn.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg/trunk ffmpeg
cd ffmpeg
./configure --enable-libmp3lame --enable-postproc --enable-gpl --enable-pthreads --enable-avfilter --prefix=/usr
make all
make install


cd /usr/src
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/sox/sox/14.3.1/sox-14.3.1.tar.gz
tar zxvf sox-14.3.1.tar.gz
cd sox-14.3.1
./configure --prefix=/usr
make all
make install


cd /usr/src
wget http://i4demo.com/openmeetings/builds/368/openmeetings_r3537.zip
unzip openmeetings_r3537.zip -d om
cd /usr/src/om/webapps/openmeetings/conf
cp mysql_hibernate.cfg.xml hibernate.cfg.xml
cd /usr/src/om

then open a screen:

screen -S openmeetings

and run in screen:

sh ./red5.sh

and open in browser
