Continuous Integration with Jenkins¶
The software stack has grown to a size where it make sense to somehow track the state after each commit. The Jenkins Software allows us to do this. The installation can be found at http://jenkins.osmocom.org/jenkins and all of Osmocom is tracked there. The goal is to have all projects/repositories of the osmocom umbrella tracked there.
We are happy if people donate CPU time to be used as additional nodes to execute the compile jobs. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to donate some.
We are using Jenkins as it comes from the FreeBSD port system. It runs using the standalone servlet container (Winstone Servlet Engine) and is behind one (IPv6) or two (IPv4) cherokee reverse proxies. Currently there are two nodes FreeBSD 8.2/AMD64 and Debian Squeeze/i386 ( running on the FreeBSD kernel, any weirdness might be a broken syscall implementation).
osmo-deps.sh script was created to clone/update a dependency in the workspace of a build node. The script will try to git-clone, git-fetch, git-reset --hard the dependency.
if ! test -d $1;
git clone git://git.osmocom.org/$1 $1
git fetch origin
git reset --hard origin/master
FreeBSD 8.2 and Osmocom¶
Not everything is required to build on GNU/Linux systems, for SIMtrace a fake libusb-1.0.pc was created to point to the /usr/include,/usr/lib for libusb, all dependencies (fftw, erlang, autotools...) were installed through the port system
Normal Debian/Squeeze installation, all dependencies installed via the apt/dpkg package system. The arm-elf-gcc toolchain is installed using the toolchain script of the bb.osmocom.org wiki.
