Shipwright tarball for RT 3.8.1?

Was there going to be a shipwright tarball for RT 3.8.1 ?

I saw some mention of this a while back, but have only been able to find
shipwright for 3.8.0.

Not yet, but when we have it, you should be able to get at it via
subversion with:

svn co http://code.bestpractical.com/shipwright/rt/3.8/ rt-3.8-vessel

I’ll see if I can make that happen today, but no promises

Thanks!

Also, were there issues with the build that’s up there for 3.8.0? I
tried it a few days ago, and RT complained about certain perl modules
being a version or two older than what it wanted.

Also, is there an easy way to build a shipwright vessel for the
average user, or is that intended to be the job of the people making
the releases?

I intend to use shipwright to build/install RT into our distributed
filesystem here. Makes RT much easier to migrate from one machine to
another if I don’t have to worry about things like perl. And sure, I
could do all of this by hand, but shipwright should greatly simplify
that :wink:

The goal is to make it easy. You can download shipwright from cpan and
give it a stab.

That’s what we’re trying for :slight_smile:

Can you try using svn to grab the vessel as it is today? It’s freshly
updated for 3.8.2

Yeah, I’ll give it a try later today, or as soon as I have a chance to.

The vessel built fine up until RT…

see http://users.bx.psu.edu/~phalenor/rt-fail.txt

Looks like a few of the dists didn’t get bumped up to the version
required by RT ?

nope, exactly the same dependencies missing as before.

Are you sure svn code.bestpractical.com has the correct version? svn
said it checked out revision 792, which is the same revision it’s been
at since I first tried to build the vessel some months ago…

and in fact, no, that’s not the correct version. Try
http://fsck.com/~jesse/rt-3.8-vessel.tgz

First problem I encountered was with ncurses. Tic likes to use
hardlinks to process terminfo. However, AFS doesn’t support hard
links, so I had to add --enable-symlinks to the ncurses build script.

Next problem came with the build of cpan-DBIx-SearchBuilder. CPAN
seems to be asking to select a geographic region over and over again:

(1) Africa
(2) Asia
(3) Central America
(4) Europe
(5) North America
(6) Oceania
(7) South America
Select your continent (or several nearby continents) []
Sorry! since you don’t have any existing picks, you must make a
geographic selection.

ctrl-c’ing out of that loop, I get this:

build cpan-DBIx-SearchBuilder configure part with failure.
at ./bin/shipwright-builder line 379
main::_install(‘cpan-DBIx-SearchBuilder’, ‘GLOB(0x9b99630)’)
called at ./bin/shipwright-builder line 287
main::install() called at ./bin/shipwright-builder line 200

Also, is it possible to pass separate install and destination
directories to shipwright-builder? I see myself in a situation where I
will be installing this into a readonly replicated volume. With AFS,
any volume that’s replicated has its read-write version accessible
under /afs/.cellname, also known as the dot-path. Perl actually
detects this, and will automatically install into the dot path, but
everything will reference the normal path. It would be nice if the
other dists in the vessel could accept multiple paths - the path where
everything will ultimately reside, and the path to install to. This
would also be helpful if I want to stage the install somewhere else
temporarily.

I can’t replicate this here. Are you building perl or not building perl

Shipwright wraps all binaries in shell scripts that properly set the ENV
to allow the built dist to be fully relocatable.

Yes. Let me try again from scratch, maybe cpan failed to download something…

Shipwright wraps all binaries in shell scripts that properly set the ENV
to allow the built dist to be fully relocatable.

So I can move RT after I install it? Where would I set this, or do the
wrapper scripts pick this up automatically?

If the vessel is working right, it should not ever download anything to
build. Everything should be packaged in the vessel.

Nope, same thing. Here’s the output before it goes into an endless
loop while trying to configure cpan:

Thanks for the clarification.

Hi Andrew

maybe some tests of deps failed?

please try to use this cmd to build:
$ ./bin/shipwright-builder --install-base /tmp/vessel_3.8.2 --skip-test

then we can run rt’s own tests this way:

$ /tmp/vessel_3.8.2/bin/rt-self-test

Everything goes well for me.
Good luck!

best wishes

I think I have found the DBIx-SearchBuilder problem, and I’ve updated
our vessel.
I set up a tmp web server for you to download the latest version:

http://fsck.com:8081/vessels/3.8.tar.gz

thanks very much!
