Installation of SQLite

If you downloaded the optional documentation, issue the following command to install the documentation into the source tree:

unzip -q ../sqlite-doc-3320300.zip

Install SQLite by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr     \
            --disable-static  \
            --enable-fts5     \
            CFLAGS="-g -O2                    \
            -DSQLITE_ENABLE_FTS3=1            \
            -DSQLITE_ENABLE_FTS4=1            \
            -DSQLITE_ENABLE_COLUMN_METADATA=1 \
            -DSQLITE_ENABLE_UNLOCK_NOTIFY=1   \
            -DSQLITE_ENABLE_DBSTAT_VTAB=1     \
            -DSQLITE_SECURE_DELETE=1          \
            -DSQLITE_ENABLE_FTS3_TOKENIZER=1" &&
make

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

If you downloaded the optional documentation, issue the following commands as the root user to install it:

install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/sqlite-3.32.3 &&
cp -v -R sqlite-doc-3320300/* /usr/share/doc/sqlite-3.32.3

Command Explanations

--disable-static: This switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.

--enable-fts5: This switch enables support for version 5 of the full text search extension.

CFLAGS="-g -O2 -DSQLITE_ENABLE_FTS3=1 -DSQLITE_ENABLE_FTS3_TOKENIZER=1 -DSQLITE_ENABLE_FTS4=1 -DSQLITE_ENABLE_COLUMN_METADATA=1 -DSQLITE_SECURE_DELETE -DSQLITE_ENABLE_UNLOCK_NOTIFY=1 -DSQLITE_ENABLE_DBSTAT_VTAB=1": Applications such as SeaMonkey and Thunderbird require these options to be turned on. The only way to do this is to include them in the CFLAGS. By default, these are set to "-g -O2" so we specify that to preserve those settings. You may, of course, wish to omit the '-g' if you do not wish to create debugging information. For further information on what can be specified see http://www.sqlite.org/compile.html.
