Port from scratch

These notes are taken as the Solaris port is occuring

  • Working on a pre-installed Solaris 10 machine
  • Download the mirror package and install it on the system from sources as root. You'll need the GNU make package from the below mirror server (pkgadd -d make-3.81-sol10-x86-local.gz)
  • Create a conf file in /usr/local/etc/mirror.conf containing:
            comment=Sun GNU tools
  • Start the mirror
    # mirror /usr/local/etc/mirror.conf
  • Install then as root additional useful applications
    # cd /export/home/sunfreeware/
    # for i in
                  # Nice to have

  • Fix some ref to libs missing
    ln -s /usr/local/apr/lib/ /usr/local/lib/
    ln -s /usr/local/apr/lib/ /usr/local/lib/
  • Configure sudo to allow your user to pass root commands easily (/usr/local/etc/sudoers)
  • Download Project-Builder dependencies
    $ wget
  • Install Project-Builder dependencies
    $ gzip -cd CPAN-1.9402.tar.gz | tar xf -
    $ cd CPAN-1.9402
    $ perl Makefile.PL
    $ make
    $ sudo make install
    # /usr/perl5/5.8.4/bin/cpan
    cpan[1]> install Test::Harness
    cpan[2]> install File::MimeInfo
    cpan[3]> install Date::Manip
    cpan[4]> install Mail::Sendmail
    cpan[5]> quit
  • Download the source of
    $ wget
    $ wget
  • Extract the sources
    $ gzip -cd ProjectBuilder-latest.tar.gz | tar xf -
    $ gzip -cd project-builder-latest.tar.gz | tar xf -
  • Install the project
    $ cd ProjectBuilder-0.9.8/
    $ perl Makefile.PL
    $ make
    $ sudo make install
    $ cd ../project-builder-0.9.8/
    $ perl Makefile.PL
    $ make
    $ sudo make install
  • Test that project-builder is installed and working correctly
    $ /usr/perl5/5.8.4/bin/pb 2>&1 | head -1
    pb (aka Version 0.9.8-807
  • Be sure to have GNU tools first in your PATH
    $ cat >> ~/.bashrc << EOF
    export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
  • Build with itself to create native packages
    $ echo > ~/.pbrc << EOF
    pburl pb = svn+ssh://
    pbconfurl pb = svn+ssh://
    pbdefdir default = $ENV{'HOME'}/pb/projects
    pbdefdir pb = $ENV{'HOME'}
    pbconfdir pb = $ENV{'HOME'}/pb/pbconf
    $ pb -p pb -r devel cms2pkg
    Packages generated:  project-builder-devel.pkg.gz ProjectBuilder-devel.pkg.gz
    $ gzip -d pb/build/ProjectBuilder-devel.pkg.gz
    $ gzip -d pb/build/project-builder-devel.pkg.gz
    $ sudo /usr/sbin/pkgadd -d pb/build/ProjectBuilder-devel.pkg
    $ sudo /usr/sbin/pkgadd -d pb/build/project-builder-devel.pkg

VM setup

  • In order to setup a Solaris VM/VE, after its installation from media in QEMU, you have to check that some components are installed and activated (sshd, sudo, wget, libintl)
    # svcadm enable ssh
    # svcadm restart ssh
    # svcs network/ssh
    STATE          STIME    FMRI
    online         12:04:40 svc:/network/ssh:default
    # grep Root /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    PermitRootLogin yes
    # echo 'PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sfw/bin:/usr/perl5/5.8.4/bin:$PATH' >> /etc/profile
    # echo 'export PATH' >> /etc/profile
    # source /etc/profile
    # grep PATH /etc/default/login
    # PATH sets the initial shell PATH variable
    # SUPATH sets the initial shell PATH variable for root
    # which wget
    # for p in libgcc-3.4.6-sol10-x86-local libiconv-1.9.2-sol10-x86-local libintl-3.4.0-sol10-x86-local make-3.81-sol10-x86-local sudo-1.7.2p1-sol10-x86-local tar-1.22-sol10-x86-local; do
    > wget$p.gz
    > gzip -d $p.gz
    > pkgadd -d $p
    > done
    # pkginfo -l | egrep 'make|sudo|intl'
  • The VM/VE is then ready to be setup by pb. From the host executes:
    $ pb -p pb -m solaris-10-x86_64 setupvm
