Hi Aaron, the red5.sh file will use the already compiled red5.jar that
sits at the top of your red5 directory. red5.jar does not come
pre-created/pre-compiled on the trunk version, but if
I remember well, I think it comes precompiled on the downloadable
0.6rc1, so should run right out of the box.
There are some nightly builds of the red5.jar file here:
So you don't always have to compile red5 to start red5 core server.
However, this builds might not always work, as they are in
So probably just grab the latest, download to your red5 directory.
Rename to red5.jar, then run red5.sh straight out of the box with the
default red5 applications.
Now, here comes the problem with this. Whenever you create your own
red5 application, you have to compile ALL of red5 again. This means
you still have to recompile all of
core red5 server to be able to create your new red5 application.
However, the rc2 is set to correct all this with a new application
structure so that hopefully you should be able
to not only run red5 out of the box, but you should be able to create
your new red5 applications without having to recompile the core red5
That's my current understanding and hope that helps!
>Aaron, did you try directly executing the "red5.sh" file from a Linux
command prompt? (The file is under the parent Red5 directory). Also, first
make sure the file has 'execute' permission for your user id.
I know that the Windows equivalent ("red5.bat") works perfectly right out
of the box.

instructions for installing Red5 on Fedora and SUSE make it seem
like you have to run ANT before starting the Red5 service. In fact,
the SUSE instructions (http://osflash.org/red5/suse) state that you
have to use ant to run Red5 after starting the service.
I realize that Red5 is dependent on several frameworks, and in order
to build an application in Red5 you have to use ANT to run build.xml
to compile your application (including all of the files that make up
the framework). However, in other applications like ColdFusion, I can
install ColdFusion and later use ANT to build an application based on
a Frameworkd (namely, Model-Glue:Unity).
Do you have to install ANT in order to install and run Red5 or can the
Red5 service be started prior to running build.xml with ANT? I think
the answer to this question will be very telling.
How would you go about installing Red5 on Linux? When you say that you
can install and run it right out of the box, is that without first
installing JDK1.5 and Apache ANT?
C is forever.
