Setting up a nightly build
The GHC builder builds GHC on various platforms in various different ways each night, runs the test suite and performance benchmarks, and mails the results to the email@example.com mailing list. We're always keen to add more build slaves to the setup, especially if you have a platform that doesn't already have a build slave, so if you'd like to join the fun, please let us know at cvs-ghc@…. If a platform is represented in the nightly builds, it's more likely we'll be able to identify and fix problems specific to that platform quickly.
- On Windows, install OpenSSL from here (not the Light Version): http://www.openssl.org/related/binaries.html
- On Linux, get OpenSSL from your distro. E.g. install openssl-devel on RedHat-derived distros (e.g. Fedora), or openssl-dev on Debian-derived distros (e.g. Ubuntu)
- Mac OSX: someone please fill this in
- Solaris: someone please fill this in
cabal install HsOpenSSL
On Windows: I found I had to add 'ssl2' to 'extra-libraries' in HsOpenSSL.cabal. So
cabal unpack HsOpenSSL cd HsOpenSSL* <edit HsOpenSSL, add ssl2 to extra-libraries> cabal install --extra-include-dirs="c:/OpenSSL/include" --extra-lib-dirs="c:/OpenSSL"
To create a new build slave
The code for the builder lives in this darcs repo: http://darcs.haskell.org/builder/
Once you have built it, pick a username (something fairly unique to you) and password, and send them to igloo@…. Then initialise the client with:
./client init username password darcs.haskell.org
where username and password are your username and password, and put a copy of http://darcs.haskell.org/ghcBuilder/cert/root.pem in certs/.
You can now run the client with:
We recommend running in screen for now, as the client doesn't daemonise itself yet.
