From Mineserver Wiki
Installation of Mineserver is generally trouble-free, but this page should offer a little more detail for those who desire it. Right now only source distributions are available; this will change once there is a stable release.
This will be written up when there are binary releases available.
Mineserver requires 3 external libraries: zlib, libevent and libnoise. The method of obtaining these libraries may differ system to system, so consult your operating system's manual.
Installation is generally very simple and consists of just a few steps.
- Obtain source
- Install prerequisites
- Build Mineserver
- Edit config
Obtaining the Source Code
The source code for Mineserver is available from GitHub and in future as tarballs for stable revisions.
Checking out the source from git is straightforward: simply clone the repository from GitHub and it's ready to be compiled. An explanation of how to use git is outside the scope of this article, but there are plentiful resources on the topic to be found with your favourite search engine.

Debian and Similar
To build software on Debian, the
build-essential package is required. This package will provide you with the basic gcc/g++ toolchain. The prerequisites for Mineserver can be found in the packages zlib1g-dev, libevent-dev and libnoise-dev.
CentOS, and RHEL do not provide support for libnoise natively. As such we will need to manually compile and install the library.
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/libnoise/libnoisesrc-1.0.0.zip?download -O libnoisesrc-1.0.0.zip unzip libnoisesrc-1.0.0.zip; cd noise less README # Read this make cp -R include /usr/local/include/libnoise cp lib/* /usr/local/lib sudo echo "/usr/local/lib" > /etc/ld.so.conf/user.conf sudo /sbin/ldconfig
All other dependancies can be installed with the following commands:
# Install EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) sudo su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm' sudo yum install git libevent libevent-devel zlib zlib-devel

To build the mineserver binary, simply enter the
src directory in the source distribution and run
make. If you receive errors referring to missing files, check that you have all the prerequisites installed.
Editing the Config
This part is nice and easy. Grab the default config files from the
bin directory in the distribution and view the configuration article to get accustomed with the options available.
