Re: [ovirt-users] Compiling oVirt for Debian.

2017-04-21 Thread Leni Kadali Mutungi
Also I noticed when running `make` and `make install` for otopi after
running ./configure with the --enable-java-sdk and --with-maven
options that in both instances, code (for lack of a better word) gets
downloaded from https://repo.maven.apache.org/. I was wondering if
there was a way instead to check if the latest jar and pom modules
have been downloaded and then continue with the build using what is
already there. For a user like myself who's on a capped connection,
that would helpful since it would trim the amount of data used. Of
course, it is possible that it is minimal, but I also thought it would
be handy to avoid the duplication of effort so to speak.

As an aside, at what time is the community online in IRC? I ask
because I have had difficulty working this out from the documentation
which says 07:00 UMT to 11:00 UMT (09:00 IST to 17:00 PST). I haven't
been able to work out what timezone UMT is (all I got was Universal
Military Time and a successor standard to GMT, which I was unable to
make sense of unfortunately) and all I got for IST was Indian Standard
Time which would be okay, only that PST stands for Pacific Standard
Time (PDT in the summer) and that wouldn't add up :)

However if the mailing list is the preferred option, then I shall be
more than happy to stick to that :D

Have run into difficulties building ovirt-host-deploy. I tried to
build otopi using the commands given in the INSTALL file and made sure
to run `./configure` with the options --enable-java-sdk and
--with-maven. Unfortunately, when I restarted the building of
ovirt-host-deploy, I failed to make it past ./configure with the
resulting error below:

I've run ./configure with the options and without it, and I've got the
same error. Sandro in IRC had suggested that I adapt the full options
for ./configure in Fedora and use them in Debian. Those are as
follows:

 ./configure --build=x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu

I got stuck at `--build=x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu` since `uname -a`
gives: Linux localhost 4.6.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.6.2-2
(2016-06-25) x86_64 GNU/Linux
I wasn't sure if I should substitute `x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu` with
`x86_64-gnu-linux`. Also the ./configure script downloaded
otopi-1.7.0.master so that I would need to change that as well as the
reference to Fedora in
`--with-local-version=otopi-1.6.3-0.0.master.fc26`. I went onto the
#debian-next channel and was advised to spare myself future pain by
looking into packaging the necessary stuff for Debian instead of
trying to hack out a build that will be painful to maintain in future.

Pointers, docs, advice are all welcome.

 So does this mean I shouldn't bother with installing otopi, because
 according to the development guide for RPM-based systems, it seems
 only the ovirt-host-deploy, ovirt-setup-lib, and ovirt-js-dependencies
 are the packages required.

otopi and ovirt-host-deploy do not need configuration files.
ovirt-setup-lib does not have any (and does not mention any).
No idea about ovirt-js-dependencies.

Not sure either.

I suggest to check the spec file in the source to see what rpm
installation does, and the gentoo stuff I mentioned earlier.

And if you are not, please post specific errors/problems :-)

Obviously. When I said "from RPMs", I referred the oVirt and the
provided spec files, not to postgresql. IIRC I already used oVirt
with a postgresql db on a remote Debian machine without problems.

I was referring to the configuration files referenced in the README
docs for otopi, ovirt-host-deploy, ovirt-setup-lib, and
ovirt-js-dependencies. I'm not sure that running the make install will
put the required configuration files in the directories that the
programs will expect to find them. If it turns out that that is the
case, then I think I am all set. I installed postgresql from the
Debian repositories.

ovirt-host-deploy requires otopi, and also engine-setup (from the engine
git repo) does. So unless you want to start manually imitating what these
do (which might not be a terrible idea, if you want to understand more
deeply how things work, but will take more time), you do need otopi.

which ones? postgresql's? It's automatically done when you install
from RPMs, but not in dev-env mode. So you'll have to do that
manually for now.

Adding to otopi support for apt/dpkg is indeed interesting and useful, but
imo isn't mandatory for a first milestone. Not having an apt packager will
simply mean you can't install/update packages using otopi, but other things
should work. Notably, you won't be able to use engine-setup for upgrades,
at least not the way it's done with yum and versionlock.

anyone tried that in the last 1.5 years, so the following is not up-to-date
or working, but can still give you some ideas:

Good luck and best regards,

Nice to see interest in getting oVirt on Debian! I'm adding Milan Zamal who
was looking into getting vdsm running on Debian.

Please note that otopi is not supporting Debian yet.
It's missing support for the packaging system used by Debian. It currently
support only yum and dnf package managers.
Being ovirt-host-deploy and ovirt-setup-lib depending on otopi, you'll need
to work on otopi code first.

I would suggest to get in touch with Wildfly community about having wildfly
packaged for Debian.

[ovirt-users] Compiling oVirt for Debian.

2017-04-11 Thread Leni Kadali Mutungi
Hello all.

I am trying to install oVirt on Debian. So far I've managed to install
a good chunk of the dependencies. However I haven't been able to
install otopi, ovirt-host-deploy, ovirt-js-dependencies,
ovirt-setup-lib since Debian has no packages for these. With the
exception of otopi (whose build instructions I was unable to make
sense of on GitHub),
everything else is to be gotten from Fedora/EPEL repos.

I had thought of using alien to convert from rpm to deb, but
apparently the recommended thing is to compile from source, since
using alien can lead to a complex version of dependency hell.

I can download WildFly from source, though again the recommended
procedure is to install ovirt-engine-wildfly and
ovirt-wildfly-overlay.

Any assistance in tracking down the source code of the above packages
so that I can install them is appreciated.
