These instructions are for building illumos-gate from the OpenSXCE2013.05 for SPARC distribution. The build was performed on a Sun V240 machine (sun4u architecture) running the OpenSXCE2013.05 operating system. The procedure I used is outlined here. Some of the OpenSXCE2013.05 packages have changed since I completed my build. As well, there are alternative ways to perform some of the steps. The illumos-gate source was installed at ~/Downloads/code/illumos-gate . This directory is arbitrary, and not further mentioned in the instructions that follow:
- Download OpenSXCE2013.05 for SPARC from here .
- Install and boot into this operating system
- Before downloading illumos-gate, install these packages
# pkgutil --install SUNWstudio121
# pkgutil --install SUNWonbld
# pkgutil --install SUNWgit
- Relocate the compiler directory
This is necessary so that relative symbolic links to shared objects, within the compiler directory, will resolve correctly.
root: cd /opt
root: mv SUNWspro ..
root: ln -s ../SUNWspro .
- Configure git
$ git config --global user.name "Your Name"
$ git config --global user.email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Clone the gate
$ git clone git://github.com/illumos/illumos-gate.git
- Adjust nightly and illumos.sh, if necessary
The only changes I made were to illumos.sh . I removed the lint flag from NIGHTLY_OPTIONS, and modified GATE and CODEMGR_WS to suit my download location. The default build then uses GCC as the primary compiler and Sun Studio as the shadow
- Add perl symlink
This makes perl5.10 the operative version. A few modules are installed in the /usr/perl5/5.8.4 directory, but in general you don't need these.
# ln -s ../perl5/5.10.0/bin/perl /usr/bin/perl
- Install java development package
# pkgutil --install SUNWj6dev
- Add java symlinks
# cd /usr/jdk
# ln -s instances/jdk1.6.0 jdk1.6.0
# ln -s jdk1.6.0/ latest
# cd /usr
# ln -s jdk/jdk1.6.0 java
# cd /usr/bin
# ln -s ../jdk/instances/jdk1.6.0/bin/javac javac
- Build and install Parser.pm into the perl 5.10.0 directory
This module already exists for perl5.8, but is not available to the illumos build. Download XML-Parser-2.36.tar.gz from CPAN . Extract the archive
$ perl Makefile.PL
# make install
- Copy headers not in any packages from OI-143
These are /usr/include/mps and /usr/include/libxslt . For your convenience, I'm attaching compressed tar files of these directories: mps.tar.Z libxslt.tar.Z . Current versions of OpenSXCE2013.05 include these headers in the SUNWopensxce-selfhosting package. The version I used did not.
- Install more packages
# pkgutil --install SUNWgnu-mpfr
# pkgutil --install SUNWflexlex
# pkgutil --install --nodeps SUNWnet-snmp-utils
# pkgutil --install SUNWnet-snmp-mgr
# pkgutil --install SUNWgm4
# pkgutil --install SUNWgnu-gettext /* Answer `no' to conflicting files prompt */
- Build illumos-gate
$ ./nightly illumos.sh
