git clone git:// singularity
cd singularity/

compile singularity from sources [ubuntu 64 bit 14.04]:
if you are using a 16.x system i recommend to install virtualbox
in virtualbox install ubuntu 14.04 (2500 MB RAM and 2 cores for the virtual machine)
then you can also follow the instruction (compiling took 1h 40min for me)
to get the packaged folder to your real system i recommend to create a compressed archive of it.
based on:
install some tools:
sudo apt install libldap2-dev libidn11-dev
sudo apt install git-core -y
sudo apt install cmake -y
sudo apt install build-essential -y
sudo apt install bison flex -y
sudo apt install freeglut3-dev -y
sudo apt install openssl -y
sudo apt install libxrender-dev -y
sudo apt install libxinerama-dev -y
#sudo apt install libcrypto++9 -y
sudo apt install libcrypto++

make a folder and clone the git:
mkdir singularitydev
cd singularitydev
git clone
cd SingularityViewer
git reset --hard 897e175d3c9be3ea25acbf5c7b4a53dc53e31453
wget -O xyz.patch
cat xyz.patch | patch -p1 --dry-run
cat xyz.patch | patch -p1

setup the build script for 64bit:
indra/ -m64 -tRelease configure -DFMODSTUDIO:BOOL=TRUE #not =ON ?
setup the build script for 32bit:
indra/ -m32 -tRelease configure -DFMODSTUDIO:BOOL=TRUE
now build it (that took 4 hours or so for me)
cd build-linux-x86_64-release
cd build-linux-i686-release
make -j 2

then you should find it in:
install the 64 bit one:
cd ~/singularitydev/SingularityViewer/build-linux-x86_64-release/newview/packaged/ && ./
sudo rm -r singularitydev

remove things if your build failed:
cd /var/tmp/$USER && rm -r sg.install.cache/
cd ~/singularitydev/SingularityViewer && rm -r build-linux-x86_64-release/
