Debian Buildservers

Since December 2013 we have debian unstable buildservers.
Current build status is here: https://buildd.debian.org/status/architecture.php?a=hppa&suite=sid
Contacts for the debian HPPA buildds
Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>, PA-RISC Kernel maintainer, buildd maintainer
John David Anglin <dave.anglin@bell.net>, HPPA GCC, and binutils maintainer
James Clarke provides easy-to-use scripts to set up a buildd server

Tips to manually build debian Linux kernel

  • by adding "debug-info: false" to the [build] section in debian/config/hppa/defines avoids building the debug info

How to manually build debian packages

How to get a specific version of a source package
apt-get source packagename=version
How to build a package (without modifying source)
dpkg-buildpackage --force-sign -B -sa -m<email>
e.g.: dpkg-buildpackage --force-sign -sa -mHelge\ Deller\ \<deller@gmx.de\> -kB51E3864 -j5
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck
or in a chroot environment:
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck sbuild -s -mHelge\ Deller\ \<deller@gmx.de\> --dist=unstable --no-arch-all --no-source -j5
How to build a package (*with* modified source)
dch --distribution unstable --bin-nmu Rebuild b1
dpkg-buildpackage --force-sign -B -sa -m<email>
How to modify debian changelog
dch --distribution unstable --bin-nmu Rebuild b1
dch-git --since <commit_nr>

Create Debian chroot
https://www.wzdftpd.net/redmine/projects/general/wiki/DebianBuildd
apt-get install debian-ports-archive-keyring
/usr/sbin/sbuild-createchroot --keyring=/usr/share/keyrings/debian-ports-archive-keyring.gpg --include=debian-ports-archive-keyring,eatmydata unstable build/chroot-unstable http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/
https://wiki.debian.org/sbuild
https://www.ca-zephyr.org/mediawiki/index.php/Some_Notes
On the physical server (outside of chroot) for building experimental
adduser --force-badname --system -home /var/empty --no-create-home --quiet _apt
chmod 666 /dev/ptmx # if permissions aren't that yet
In each chroot to be fixed
Remove the link in the /usr/hppa64-linux-gnu directory to /usr/include:
ls -lad /home/build*/build*/chroot-*/usr/hppa64*/include
In each chroot, /etc/hosts has to look like this (e.g. needed for mod-gnutls package)
127.0.0.1       localhost sibaris localhost.localdomain
::1             localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
ff02::1         ip6-allnodes
ff02::2         ip6-allrouters
In each chroot modify (for unstable) /etc/apt/sources.list
deb [arch=all] http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd buildd-unstable main
deb [arch=all] http://ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports unstable main
deb http://incoming.ports.debian.org/buildd unstable main
# deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports experimental main
# main/debian-installer
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd buildd-unstable main
For building debian packages in the chroots, store the following script as /usr/bin/fix-buildd into the chroots,
and modify the chroot definitions in /etc/schroot/chroot.d/ to include this line
command-prefix=fix-buildd
#!/bin/sh
#-
# Various fixes for the debian builds
# everything in a function to avoid environment pollution
runprog() {
  local cmd
  # 1. vtk6 builds fail if DOT_NUM_THREADS is not set to 1 (machine gets unresponsive)
  DOT_NUM_THREADS=1
  export DOT_NUM_THREADS
  # 2. enable parallel building of packages
  NUMCPU=$(getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN)
  DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="parallel=$NUMCPU"
  export DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
  # execute the command
  cmd=$1
  shift
  exec "$cmd" "$@"
}
runprog "$@"

How to create multiple buildds on one server
Create new user "buildd2", use new UID, but keep GID "buildd" (without "2"). Use new homedir, e.g. /home/buildd2
Add user buildd2 to groups sbuild and buildd in /etc/group
Copy original homedir from buildd to /home/buildd2 (you won't need existing Logs and upload-debs)
Change ownership of /home/buildd2: "chmod -R buildd2.buildd /home/buildd2"
Create a new chroot with /usr/sbin/sbuild-createchroot (name e.g. "unstable2"). Update the generated /etc/schroot/chroot.d/XXX file. Usually I have my chroots then under /home/buildd2/build-trees/chroots/
In ~buildd2 create new .sbuildrc und .builddrc files, and change wanna_build_db_user => "buildd_hppa-phantom2" and sbuild_chroot => "unstable2-hppa-sbuild"
Log in as buildd2 and manually run "buildd" to check if everything works.
If everything worked add the buildd-cronjobs for buildd2 in /etc/cron.d/buildd (copy existing entries and change copied entries to use "buildd2" instead of "buildd"
