Re: [Xen-API] opam build howto

Hi Nick,

Just to confirm, I did follow buildroot steps to build packages.
Having said that, I'm a bit afraid to update them with the latest build. Maybe the problem is with one of the latest revisions.
The one I'm using is back from the beginning of the year and I've installed separately ffs build. Please check the mailing list archive.

I've used LTS 14.04 as build host too.

Hi Nick,

I'll be happy to help to get you running Xenapi as I agree this is great piece of code. It just takes so much effort to get it running.

The easiest for me would be to share with you packages I've built directly from sources. But equally, you could prefer to get specific git commit and follow same instructions I did.

More or less at the high level I did just follow standard instructions. I did run into some problems with ffs and putting it on ZFS, but this is different story. You can certainly find my posts within archive.

The issue I did fall into was:

Check the buildroot instructions please.

If you'd still have questions, let me know.

btw. I might reply with delays, maybe even next week as have some commitments.

Good luck,

Hi David,

Did you mean you had problems with installing Xapi or Xen?

I've never been able to install xapi onto ubuntu via buildroot - I
originally tried on 14.04, and then upgraded my desktop to Ubuntu 15.04
to deal with findlib issues. I'm at the point where I've got the xapi
packages to compile via opam but now need to try and find a harness to
take those packages and build something that will allow be to run something.

Recently got hold of another machine to try out buildroot with centos.
Installed centos 7 and buildroot failed straightaway with a findlib make

This is all a real shame as it is a great bit of software but there
seems to be no qos built in to make any form of build working straight
out of the box - things are adjusted within the buildroot scripts and
then nothing is tested to make sure that the fix works.

No hair left to pull out.

Hi Nick,

I've had some problems installing Xen on Ubuntu 14.04 hence I've went
ahead and built all packages locally.

I'm just trying to build xapi via opam on Ubuntu.

The installation went OK (apart from xapi-rrd.0.9.1 [err: ocamlfind: Is
a directory] and tar-format.0.4.1 [mismatch on interface/impl -
Make_KV_RO(BLOCK), value `id' is required but not provided]).

I'd like to build the installation/server from the installed libraries -
could someone possibly point a finger to where I might find information
on how to do this?
