Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-5105) Location to host CloudStack Devcloud build process & VM download location
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2012 03:34:34 GMT


Chip Childers commented on INFRA-5105:

Build time is ~20 minutes, depending on the host's resources.  The question I have is if I
can include root access as part of the build process.  If the target platform / host for the
build doesn't have VirtualBox installed, it would require installing and loading the kernel

I'm good with making this a jenkins build process in general though.  Brett, can you add my
account (chipchilders) to the jenkins system so that I can try to do this?

> The CloudStack (Incubating) project is working on a developer focused virtual machine
image called DevCloud.  This is a VM that we produce via a VeeWee [1] installation process
of a VirtualBox [2] VM image, coupled with  Vagrant [3] and puppet provisioners.
> This is NOT a release artifact, but a developer support tool (and community building
> I'm wondering if there is an ASF server that can host a nightly build process and download
area for this VM image.  It would require root access for me to install VirtualBox, as well
as Ruby 9.1.2, VeeWee and Vagrant.
> It was suggested that I try on the server (I'm on minotaur), but obviously
I don't have root access to perform the VirtualBox installation.  I know that VirtualBox has
a FreeBSD port available [4], which involves the installation and loading of a kernel module
for it to work.
> Another area of (potential) concern is that the resulting image is ~500 MB in size.
> Any help or direction would be appreciated.
