up to date svn ?
« on: October 28, 2007, 05:00:24 pm »
 Hi to all Developpers and users of this great solution,

 I'm willing to build lmce from source since i'm not able to get videolanserver and vdr from repositories.

 I looked at the sourceforge svn and it seem quiet outdated.

 would it be possible to get access the svn pre 0710 so i can get all the changes that have been done since march.

 Best regards,

Rafik

From what I know, currently you can only access the 0704-source-tarball from the Mirrors-Page in the wiki, and the somewhat current svn with the patches since 0704 from http://svn.charonmedia.org/ ... That would be the place for you to go...

As to the naming... There are no indications for a version 0710 so far... current Milestone would be "Get compiling from scratch" and then think about the next version... ;)

lmce-0710 is due at the end of Nov 2007... see the announcement on the lmce home page ;-)

Just found it...
I don't know anything about that right now... I'll try to get some more information... The most current svn I know is the one mentioned above...

The only significant difference between the svn that 0710 will be built from and the svn.charonmedia.org is that the 0710 repo is not public and has a more recent sync from mythtv 0.20-fixes. I have read access to the 0710 repo and will sync from it after the release.

I would like to move to MythTV trunk in the public repo and I'm working on making the build scripts not depend on hard coded paths and URLs. Except for making some suggestions to improve the MythTV default configuration and looking at a couple of "MythTV crashing in LMCE" problems, I'm not involved with 0710 release. If all goes according to plan 0804 will be build from the sources available at svn.charonmedia.org, which will be mirrored at svn.linuxmce.org, soon...

BTW There is a developer mailing list at www.charonmedia.org...

 Hi All,

 Thank you for your replies, i will get the sources from http://svn.charonmedia.org/ and have a go at it.

 It's great to see this project going on with more and more people coming on board.

  Regards,

Rafik Boulellou

Did you get this going at any point?

I would be interested in doing this too but not sure if its going to be more trouble than its worth.

How hard was it for people to get it working from this method?

Regards

Matthew

 Well,

 i did download the tar and done the svn updates, the sources build seem to need a bit of cleanup
so the answer would be "if you have some spare time go on with it".

 I'm willing to help out Daniel to cleanup the build process, i checked out the 440 build on the svn trac
and i can still see some hardcoded links ie: svn_url="http://10.0.2.4/" sql_master_host="10.0.2.4"
in src/Ubuntu_Helpers/BuildUbuntu_Functions.sh. i think those links need to be actualized.

 I also noticed that debootstrap create every time a new /tmp/creates_dieskless_XXXX and this takes ages and does not help when the build breaks. So i think that it would a good idea to cache the packages in somedir so build process would be faster thus helping us a quicker troubleshooting.

 I do not intend to be a developper and this is why i did not register on charonmedia dev list,
but i would rather say that i'm a sys engineer that did his ways around gpl systems and soft in different kind of situations.

 I think i would be able to correct few build scripts and it would be nice to sync with Daniel so we can get further...

 Daniel, Please tell me what you thing about that, wouldn'it be better to sync our work rather than having
many private branches ?

 Best Regards to all,

Rafik Boulellou

Rafik, are you using "./configure" and "make" in the trunk root to build?

I ask because I've been removing all the stuff like svn_url="http://10.0.2.4/" in the build process that initiates. Also, the make script touches files in the build directory to avoid recreating stuff on each build. After this has run once you can go to the src/VDR and src/VDRPlugin to compile those components, but there is more to getting it working than that; I highly recommend that you join the developer mailing list or wait a few weeks.

Daniel, Please tell me what you thing about that, wouldn'it be better to sync our work rather than having many private branches ?

Yup, hence the new public repo. Everything I'm doing is either there or in the MythTV public repo.

It's a good idea to sign up for the dev list if you're trying to build from sources, even if you're not planning to contribute right now.
