Building LinuxMCE 0810
Setting up a chroot environment
These steps are optional as you can just build on a clean Kubuntu-8.10 install. But required if you want to build using an existing 0810 core without ruining it's run-time database.
Start with becoming root as the following steps will need to be done using super user privileges.
sudo su -
Create the environment
apt-get install debootstrap debootstrap --arch i386 intrepid /media/kubuntu-8.10/
Mount required directories
mount --bind /dev /media/kubuntu-8.10/dev mount none /media/kubuntu-8.10/proc -t proc mount none /media/kubuntu-8.10/dev/pts -t devpts
Change-root into the environment
Verify apt's list of repositories
Make sure /etc/apt/sources.list (inside the chroot) contains something very similar to:
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid main restricted universe multiverse deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid main restricted universe deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-updates main restricted universe multiverse deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-updates main restricted universe deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu intrepid-security main restricted universe deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu intrepid-security main restricted universe deb http://debian.slimdevices.com/ stable main
Installing needed packages
Important! Perform these also after chrooting.
apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade apt-get install aptitude openssh-client mysql-server
Reconfigure MySQL to not open a TCP-IP network port:
sed 's/^[^#]*bind-address[[:space:]]*=.*$/#&\nskip-networking/' -i /etc/mysql/my.cnf
Building from source
For a more in detail description of all the steps involved see Building LinuxMCE 0804
Currently the focus is on getting the following to work completely.
You should only have to do this part once initially.
The following steps will require superuser privileges, And it is always wise to refresh the packages list beforehand.
sudo su - apt-get update
Obtaining the build scripts
apt-get install subversion svn co http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/branches/LinuxMCE-0810/src/Ubuntu_Helpers_NoHardcode
Installing the build scripts
cd Ubuntu_Helpers_NoHardcode ./install.sh cd /usr/local/lmce-build
Configuring the build scripts
cat >/etc/lmce-build/builder.custom.conf <<EOF # Uncomment to avoid DVD build step[s] do_not_build_sl_dvd="yes" do_not_build_dl_dvd="yes" # Uncomment to create fake win32 binaries win32_create_fake="yes" # Point to the development sqlCVS server for 0810 sqlcvs_host="schema.linuxmce.org" EOF
Preparing for build
The preparation steps one at a time (recommended):
prepare-scripts/install-build-pkgs.sh prepare-scripts/cd1-prepare.sh prepare-scripts/cd2-prepare.sh prepare-scripts/create-diskless-debootstrap.sh prepare-scripts/import-external-files.sh prepare-scripts/preseed-build-pkgs.sh
Or, you could do them all in one go with:
Building from source
All the build steps can be executed seperately (recommended at least the first time):
build-scripts/checkout-svn.sh build-scripts/import-win32bins.sh build-scripts/build-replacements.sh build-scripts/build-makerelease.sh build-scripts/import-databases.sh build-scripts/build-maindebs.sh build-scripts/get-closed-source-debs.sh build-scripts/create-repo.sh build-scripts/cd1-build.sh build-scripts/cd2-build.sh
Or the following script will run them all:
