Building on Solaris

(Well, OpenSolaris)

Note and Disclaimer

I'm still working on getting this all to work. Don't actually follow these instructions until I've claimed success.

Onto the Point

After a few dead starts, the best way to build on Solaris is to use a BrandZ Linux zone, and install enough stuff into the CentOS-3 image to make it all work.

Using these directions for setting up the zone: http://wikis.sun.com/display/chosug/Installing+a+Linux+Zone

Try to install what you can from the package list in MokoMakefile

The rest, here's what I've had to install so far:

  1. apr-1.3.3/ -- for subversion
  2. apr-util-1.3.4/ -- for subversion
  3. bash-3.2/ -- the builtin cp doesn't take the -t option, the one in this newer bash does.
  4. diffstat-1.46/
  5. help2man-1.36.4/ -- build without NLS.
  6. git-1.6.0.2/
  7. ncftp-3.2.2/ -- to make CPAN happy about Locale::gettext
  8. neon-0.28.3/ -- for subversion
  9. Python-2.6/ -- for the proper sqlite support
  10. sqlite-3.6.3/ -- for python
  11. subversion-1.5.3/ -- yum didn't have this.
  12. texi2html-1.64/
  13. texinfo-4.9/ -- default version didn't have makeinfo

Actually, whenever you have the option, --disable-nls in the configure scripts seems to make life a lot easier.

This is being written as I do it, so note that it'll change until I've gotten a full build (make image) done. After that, it's dfu-util!
