Subject FINAL CHAPTER: repost: trooubled with ant from source install
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2007 23:17:01 GMT
Hi

It seems I got through.  To recap, I am building ant 1.7.0 from
source on redhat linux enterprise server (AMD 64).  My destination
$ANT_HOME environmental variable is set as /usr/local/home.  Below's
a successful procedure.  My comments are in parentheses.

  cd /usr/local
  mkdir ant
  cd ant
  (download apache-ant-1.7.0-src.tar.gz in here, decompress, and untar)

  cd apache-ant-a.7.0
  sh build.sh -Ddist.dir=/usr/local/ant dist
  (it fails, but keep going)

  sh bootstrap.sh -f fetch.xml -Ddest=optional all
  (this works, although it says BUILD FAILED; keep going)

  sh build.sh -Ddist.dir=/usr/local/ant dist
  (it reports some problem, but told me BUILD SUCCESSFUL)

  sh build.sh install
  (again some unpleasant reports, but ends with BUILD SUCCESSFUL)

Many thanks for Alexey Solofnenko and Peter Reilly.  Without
excellent assistance from them, I don't think I'd have gotten
through.

Thank you, Alexey!
Thank you, Peter!

Regards,

Hi Alexey,

I am getting somewhere!  Please stay with me just a bit longer.
I bent your instruction just a bit and typed:

    bootstrap.sh -f fetch.xml -Ddest=optional all

which downloaded some files and built a bunch of targets
as specified by xml target "all".  And it came back with

    BUILD FAILED
    Target "bootstrap" does not exist in the project "fetch".

I have two questions:

(1) It sounds like it is still looking for a target bootstrap.
    Is it safe to ignore this message?

(2) Now that I have built these targets, can I go back to
    the process I was doing before?  Namely, to reissue the
    command:

    sh build.sh -Ddist.dir=/usr/local/ant dist

Regards,

bootstrap.sh -f fetch.xml all

I also see the error, but fetch.xml is executed normally.
