Date: Thu, 19 May 2011 08:38:26 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: owl-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Owl test builds Georgi, I've just setup the promised OpenVZ container for your test builds (sent the details to you off-list). I suggest that you do your builds in two chroots, /owl32 and /owl64, which you'll need to create. Of course, I could create two OpenVZ containers instead, but I think it's nice for you to have a clean system and to experiment in chroots, which you can easily re-create on your own (and you can also create more than two if needed). I suggest that you do something like: su - build lftp http://mirrors.kernel.org cd /openwall/Owl/current get native.tar.gz cd x86_64 mirror RPMS exit # from lftp tar xzf native.tar.gz exit # from su mkdir /owl cd ~build make installworld # installs 64-bit Owl userland under /owl mv /owl /owl64 Then maybe: useradd -m build32 su - build32 ...download for i686... cp native/Owl/build/installworld.conf . vi installworld.conf # edit HOME and ROOT ... mkdir /owl32 cd ~build setarch i686 make installworld # installs 32-bit Owl userland under /owl32 Of course, it's preferable to check signatures on stuff you download, as described here: http://openwall.info/wiki/Owl/upgrade However, since this is for test builds only, which we're not going to use directly (instead, we'd review and commit the resulting patches, then do clean builds elsewhere), security of this setup is not terribly important. This is why I don't insist on you being more careful. For the actual test builds, you'd use: chroot /owl64 su - build ...download stuff again (or copy from outside of chroot)... make buildworld and: setarch i686 chroot /owl32 ...ditto... Please let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues. For general Owl usage/build issues, please post in here. For issues specific to this server setup (e.g., connectivity), e-mail me off-list. Thanks, Alexander
