Building from Source
Users are recommended to use the pre-built xemu binaries. If you would like to build from source however, follow the instructions for your platform below.
Windows builds are cross-compiled from Ubuntu. If you would like to build on Windows, you can use WSL2 and Docker. See official Docker documentation for how to get WSL2 and Docker set up.
# Clone and build git clone https://github.com/mborgerson/xemu.git docker run --rm -v $PWD/xemu:/xemu -w /xemu \ -e CCACHE_DIR=/xemu/ccache \ mborgerson/xemu-ubuntu-win64-cross:latest \ ./build.sh -p win64-cross # Run ./xemu/dist/xemu.exe
First install the Homebrew package manager.
# Install dependencies brew update brew install coreutils pkg-config dylibbundler ninja # Clone and build git clone https://github.com/mborgerson/xemu.git cd xemu ./build.sh # Run open ./dist/xemu.app
# Install dependencies sudo apt update sudo apt install build-essential libsdl2-dev libepoxy-dev libpixman-1-dev libgtk-3-dev libssl-dev libsamplerate0-dev libpcap-dev ninja-build # Clone and build git clone https://github.com/mborgerson/xemu.git cd xemu ./build.sh # Run ./dist/xemu

Tip: Building with Clang, or another specific compiler
If you have multiple toolchains and would like to build with specific one, such as clang, you can specify the compiler and linker through environment variables when invoking build.sh as follows:
CC=clang CXX=clang++ CC_LD=lld CXX_LD=lld AR=llvm-ar ./build.sh
