Update: A Fabric script for performing everything you see here has been written. If you like using Fabric, feel free to copy code as you see fit. One difference is that the
fabfile.py does not copy Apache FOP anywhere, it simply uses it temporarily to perform the build.
Developer Tool Chain
Basic tools for compiling software on OpenIndiana. You might already have half of these, but on a bare-bones OpenIndiana install, these will be needed to compile just about anything.
$ pfexec pkg install developer/illumos-gcc $ pfexec pkg install developer/gnu-binutils $ pfexec pkg install system/header $ pfexec pkg install system/library/math/header-math $ pfexec pkg install developer/library/lint $ export PATH=/opt/gcc/4.4.4/bin:$PATH
Java Development Kit
For OpenIndiana, the provided JDK package will suffice.
$ pfexec pkg install developer/java/jdk
Get the binary for the latest release and extract somewhere, such as
/opt. Be sure to add the
fop binary to your
PATH, perhaps by adding a symlink from
/usr/local/bin (just as an example).
Once those are in place, building Erlang/OTP is easy.
$ ./configure $ make $ export FOP_OPTS="-Xmx512m" $ make docs $ pfexec make install $ pfexec make install-docs
And now to test it out:
$ erl +V Erlang (ASYNC_THREADS,HIPE) (BEAM) emulator version 6.1
If that works, terrific. If not, send me email or leave a comment, and I’ll see what I can do.
