Subject [LINUX-BUILD] Details on my Ubuntu 11.04 experience
Date Wed, 07 Sep 2011 17:27:14 GMT
I did this a couple of days ago, but ran into some issues that others
had not come across, so I decided to repeat it. I wiped out the
machine, and started fresh with new 11.04 Ubuntu machine.  I tried to
follow the build instructions literally and copied errors messages and
remediations when I found them.

== prep ==

Fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 on x86, 1 GB RAM, 240 GB HD

Ran update manager, installed all patches, rebooted

== getting the code ==

We're on Subversion now, not Mercurial, so obviously that part of the
instructions changes.

svn co ooo

That didn't work.  Needed to "apt-get install subversion" first.

Then code downloaded fine

== build-dep ==

Instructions in the guide say to do:

sudo apt-get build-dep

But that finds 5 dependencies:

The following NEW packages will be installed:
  debhelper html2text libmail-sendmail-perl libsys-hostname-long-perl
0 upgraded, 5 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

However, if we do:

sudo apt-get build-dep libreoffice

Then we see a lot more.  Sure there is a lot of mono junk we don't
need, but it has most of what we do need.

The following NEW packages will be installed:
  ant ant-optional appmenu-qt autoconf automake automoc autotools-dev bison
  bsd-mailx bsh bsh-gcj ca-certificates-java cli-common-dev comerr-dev
  dctrl-tools debhelper default-jdk default-jre default-jre-headless
  devscripts dmake docbook-xsl dput ecj ecj-gcj fastjar fdupes flex fontforge
  gcj-4.4-base gcj-4.4-jre-headless gcj-4.4-jre-lib gcj-4.5-base gcj-4.5-jdk
  gcj-4.5-jre gcj-4.5-jre-headless gcj-4.5-jre-lib gcj-jdk gcj-jre

But a problem.    The install of postfix surfaces a configure UI that cannot

apt-get of postfix appears to lock on configure UI that cannot be
exited out of.  At least not gracefully.  Searched the web, this
appears to be a known problem

So abort the apt-get, install postfix via the Synaptic package manager
and then rerun sudo apt-get build-dep libreoffice

That runs to completion

== configure ==

cd ooo/main

That step is missing in the instructions.

./configure --disable-mozilla --with-junit="/usr/share/java/junit4.jar"

This required several iterations, as missing packages were identified:

1) pam_appl.h could not be found. libpam-dev or pam-devel missing

sudo apt-get install libpam0g-dev

2) checking for external/unowinreg/unowinreg.dll... configure:
WARNING: not found, will be cross-built using mingw32
configure: error: for rebuilding unowinreg.dll you need the mingw32
C++ compiler.
         Specify mingw32 g++ executable name with --with-mingwin.
         Or use prebuilt one from and
         put it into external/unowinreg

3) configure: error: requirements to build with librsvg support not
met. Use --disable-librsvg or install the missing packages

Escape this with:

./configure --disable-mozilla
--with-junit="/usr/share/java/junit4.jar" --disable-librsvg

4) configure: error: cannot find JUnit jjar; please install one in the default
location (/usr/share/java), specify its pathname via
--with-junit=..., or disable it via --without-junit

apt-get install junit junit4

configure them runs to completion

== bootstrap ==


This is where I saw references to Hg still, with output like this:

Is this downloading stuff from ???  I

That completes successfully.

== Build ==


cd instsetoo_native && build --all

And that is still running for me.

So overall it looks good.  A few places where the doc could be improved.
