Local SVN respository

John OSullivan

Hi,

I am trying to build a local package from a local svn repository. The
software I am building is a heavily hacked version of some open source
package. I am trying to retrieve the software from a local svn
repository (svn:// and not http) but buildroot keeps fetching the
official version of the software rather than my local copy. I have tried
various options like _OVERRIDE_SRCDIR but cannot change this behaviour,
any suggestions?

An extract from my mk file follows:

MYPACKAGE_VERSION = 1.0.1

#This should fetch it from an SVN repository and create
mysoftware-1.0.1.tar.gz in the dl directory
MYPACKAGE_SITE=svn://myserver/mydir/trunk/mysoftware-1.0.1/

#MYPACKAGE_SITE_METHOD = svn

#MYPACKAGE_OVERRIDE_SRCDIR =
${BUILDROOT_LOCATION}/../../mydir/mysoftware-1.0.1/

#This should take  mysoftware-1.0.1.tar.gz directly from the dl
directory and place it in output/build/mysoftware directory
MYPACKAGE_SOURCE = mysoftware-$(MYPACKAGE_VERSION).tar.gz

David Sanchez Herrero
Is only an idea as a workaround, and I'm not sure if it could work, but you can try to add to the host file a line with the URL of the remote repository pointing to localhost. This will make Buildroot access the local repository when it tries to access the remote one.


Greetings, David.

  Is it a package that is already in buildroot or a new one?  If it is
already in buildroot, do you create MYPACKAGE under the same name or a
different name?  Did you change the version number from what is in buildroot?
Is you .mk file even included by buildroot?  Is MYPACKAGE selected in the
.config?

  If you want to debug what is happening, use

make -p mypackage 2&>1 | less

  That gives you a dump of all the variables and rules defined by the
Makefiles.  You should see a lot of variables MYPACKAGE_... =
(if that is not the case, you're missing $(eval $(generic-package))).
You should see MYPACKAGE_SITE = ... as you defined it.
You should see mypackage in TARGETS (if not, it's not selected in
.config).  You should also see rules like:

mypackage-build: mypackage-configure .../mypackage-1.0.1/.stamp_built

.../mypackage-1.0.1/.stamp_built:
# PKG = MYPACKAGE
#  commands to execute (from `package/pkg-generic.mk', line 107):
         @$(call MESSAGE,"Building")
         $($(PKG)_BUILD_CMDS)
         $(foreach hook,$($(PKG)_POST_BUILD_HOOKS),$(call $(hook))$(sep))
         $(Q)touch $@

Hi Arnout,

Thank you for your help, in answer to your questions,
The package is already in buildroot, at the moment I have the same
version number and I have created it under the same name. It is selected
in the config and when I do make with debug (-p) on I get:

svn: Syntax error in revision argument '1.0.1'

my svn command is
MYPACKAGE_SITE=svn://myserver/mydir/trunk/mysoftware-1.0.1/

but based on the error message it looks like the svn checkout is failing
because the version number is being based a revision (I'm guessing). Is
there some way of to suppress that action.

regards

  Ah, of course, I forgot that subversion doesn't have tags...  You
should change MYPACKAGE_VERSION to the svn revision number you need,
or HEAD.
