Gentoo Build Environment

Post by i386DX » Mon Jan 31, 2005 2:23 am

Gentoo Build Environment

login to root
su
enter password( if asked )

emerge xmingw-binutils xmingw-w32api xmingw-runtime xmingw-gcc subversion

all required dependencies will/should be installed,
xmingw-gcc needs to be installed after the other xmingw packages for g++ support

exit

versions I installed (if you have problems with other versions)
* dev-util/xmingw-binutils
Latest version installed: 2.15.90.0.2
* dev-util/xmingw-gcc
Latest version installed: 3.4.2
* dev-util/xmingw-runtime
Latest version installed: 3.5
* dev-util/xmingw-w32api
Latest version installed: 3.1
* dev-util/subversion (this is svn)
Latest version installed: 1.1.2

cd ~/
mkdir ros
cd ros
svn co svn://svn.reactos.com/trunk/reactos


edit reactos/rules.mak

run

Code: Select all

export PATH=${PATH}:/opt/xmingw/bin:/opt/xmingw/i386-xmingw32msvc
add this to the top of rules.mak

Code: Select all

HOST=mingw32-linux
change this

ifeq ($(HOST),mingw32-linux)
export NASM_FORMAT = win32
export PREFIX = mingw32-

to this

ifeq ($(HOST),mingw32-linux)
export NASM_FORMAT = win32
export PREFIX = i386-mingw32msvc-



cd ~/ros/reactos
edit config to suit your needs (self explanitory)
make

hopefully, it should build succesfully
If I forgot something, or something changed let me know or feel free to add below
edit: fixed more stupid mistakes :oops:

Nice short tutorial, with the export PREFIX, drop the BB tags, they obviously don't work ;)

Edit:

Code: Select all

$ make
make: *** Recursive variable `PATH' references itself (eventually).  Stop.
What is that error?

Aha, solved another issue (thanks Arty!)

HOST=mingw-linux

must be

HOST=mingw32-linux

Instead of

Code: Select all

emerge xmingw-binutils xmingw-w32api xmingw-runtime xmingw-gcc subversion 
you need to run

Code: Select all

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge xmingw-binutils xmingw-w32api xmingw-runtime xmingw-gcc subversion 
This is because gentoo's ebuild currently has 3.3.1 as the default version of gcc, but reactos needs 3.4.2

just updating...
many things have become easier:

Gentoo Build Environment on x86 architecture

login to root

Code: Select all

su
enter password (if asked)

run

Code: Select all

emerge subversion xmingw-binutils xmingw-w32api xmingw-runtime xmingw-gcc
all required dependencies will/should be installed,
xmingw-gcc needs to be installed after the other xmingw packages for g++ support

now logout from root and download the ROS sources:

Code: Select all

exit
cd ~/
mkdir ros
cd ros
svn co svn://svn.reactos.com/trunk/reactos
cd reactos
take a look at config.template.xml (self explanitory)

run

Code: Select all

export PATH=${PATH}:/opt/xmingw/bin:/opt/xmingw/i386-mingw32msvc
export ROS_PREFIX=i386-mingw32msvc
make
This will take a while. If everything worked fine, your ReactOS has been compiled now. Finally you will probably want to run

Code: Select all

make install
Then all necessary files are placed in ~/ros/reactos/reactos

everything worked fine with the currently stable versions of the gentoo packages

About the Gcc version, now 3.4.x is now the default version in portage, so there's no need to add Acept keywods ~x86 to gcc.

Could you clean this information up and update the Gentoo specific section of the Linux Build Environment page in the wiki?

I made a small shell script utilizing kdialog to have a gui for the Gentoo Build environment. It should work with other distros, too. Feel free to edit or use as you wish. Maybe someone finds it useful.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
# small kdialog ReactOS compilation script V.1
#
# setup the directory where the reactos trunk is in.
cd /home/tux/ros/reactos

#setup some settings for the xmingw compiler.
export PATH=${PATH}:/opt/xmingw/bin:/opt/xmingw/i386-mingw32msvc
export ROS_PREFIX=i386-mingw32msvc

# first, kdialog is run to get the info what to do from the user.
kdialog --separate-output --title "Options" --checklist "What should be done?" 1 "svn update" on 2 "make clean" on 3 "make" on 4 "make bootcd" on 5 "make livecd" off 6 "make install" off > "./.kdialog.tmp"
# then the redirected output to ./.kdialog.tmp will be used to do things.
while read line; do
  if [ $line = 1 ]; then
    echo "------------------------------"
    echo "--------- svn update ---------"
    echo "------------------------------"
    svn update
  fi
  if [ $line = 2 ]; then
    echo "------------------------------"
    echo "--------- make clean ---------"
    echo "------------------------------"
    make clean
  fi
  if [ $line = 3 ]; then
    echo "------------------------------"
    echo "------------ make ------------"
    echo "------------------------------"
    make
  fi
  if [ $line = 4 ]; then
    echo "------------------------------"
    echo "-------- make bootcd ---------"
    echo "------------------------------"
    make bootcd
  fi
  if [ $line = 5 ]; then
    echo "------------------------------"
    echo "-------- make livecd ---------"
    echo "------------------------------"
    make livecd
  fi
  if [ $line = 6 ]; then
    echo "------------------------------"
    echo "-------- make install --------"
    echo "------------------------------"
    make install
  fi
done < "./.kdialog.tmp"
rm "./.kdialog.tmp"

Save the content of this codebox to a file, then save it somewhere in your path (or make a link inside the path, e.g. /usr/bin to where you saved the file) and make sure it has the access rights properly set to be executed.
