[MacRuby-devel] PPC build server for MacRuby trunk
rdm at cfcl.com
Tue Apr 7 00:16:25 PDT 2009
I have set up a PPC-based server (dual-core 2.0 GHz Power Mac G5) to do
nightly downloads and builds of the MacRuby trunk. The current snapshot
was made at 2350 PDT; the next and following runs will occur at 0500. I
plan to install a script RSN to remove ancient output.
Clues and suggestions welcome...
The README file suggests using:
for building LLVM. This doesn't seem reasonable for a PPC machine.
So, based Dömötör Gulyás's hint on how to build MacRuby, I tried:
After an interminable series of compilations, the build finished:
llvm: Linking Release executable Sample (without symbols)
llvm: ======= Finished Linking Release Executable Sample
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
llvm: ***** Completed Release Build
I then tried to install llvm, but got LOTS of errors of the form:
/opt/local/bin/ginstall: cannot create regular file
No such file or directory
I then alternated between mkdir and "make install" commands for a
while, making the following directories:
This was really tedious. I assume that there is something I (or the
build script) should have done to obviate this hassle. Suggestions?
Build, Specs, Benchmarks
The build proceeded without any apparent problems.
The specs proceeded without any apparent problems.
The benchmarks stalled for a looooooong time here:
50000 raise 942.180000 13.450000 955.630000 (536.527173)
Examining code, output, etc.
The directory tree is available for public examination at:
