Setup for a SL5_x86_64_EPEL build enviroment


  • Install SL5_x86_64
  • All extension, such as DAG or ATrpms, must be removed or disabled ( "rm adobe.repo dag.repo atrpms.repo lemon.repo ..." )
  • SL5 YUM repositories must be protected (if not already present, add protect=1 to all the sl-*.repo files)
  • Packages yum-protectbase and yum-priorities must be installed ( "yum -y install yum-protectbase yum-priorities" )
  • Configure the access to VCS repositories according to the user's security model adopted

Packages and environment

  • Install PGP keys:
wget -O /tmp/glite_key_gd.asc
rpm --import /tmp/glite_key_gd.asc
wget -O /tmp/RPM-GPG-KEY-emi.asc
rpm --import /tmp/RPM-GPG-KEY-emi.asc
  • Install the EPEL extension:
rpm -Uvh
(Please consider the mirrors listed here if the fedora website is not accesible).

  • Install the EMI third-party repositories:
wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/emi1-third-party.repo
wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/emi-build-environment.repo
  • Install the basic build enviroment:
yum install emi-build-environment

ETICS setup

  • Install the ETICS client:
cd /opt && wget "" -O etics-client-setup
python etics-client-setup
  • See HOWTO the for ETICS client setup

Checkout and build

  • Build the WMS (see the table below for specific values):
mkdir wms && cd wms
etics-get-project emi
(required before checkout: execute as root this command 'yum -y install gsoap2.7-devel')
etics-checkout --noask --platform sl5_x86_64_gcc412EPEL --continueonerror --project-config <Project configuration> -c <Subsystem configuration> emi.wms
etics-build --platform sl5_x86_64_gcc412EPEL --continueonerror emi.wms
Project configuration Subsystem configuration
EMI-1 emi_R_1_rc emi-wms_B_3_3
EMI-2 emi_B_2_dev emi-wms_B_3_4
  • Build the WMS UI (see the table below for specific values):
mkdir wms-ui && cd wms-ui
etics-get-project emi
etics-checkout --noask --platform sl5_x86_64_gcc412EPEL --continueonerror --project-config <Project configuration> -c <Subsystem configuration> emi.wms-ui
etics-build --platform sl5_x86_64_gcc412EPEL --continueonerror emi.wms-ui
Project configuration Subsystem configuration
EMI-1 emi_R_1_rc emi-wms-ui_B_3_3
EMI-2 emi_B_2_dev emi-wms-ui_B_3_4

Tips and trick

  • The basic build environment could not install all the external dependencies required, expecially for configuration under development such as EMI-2. The checkout operation notifies all the missing dependencies; these dependencies must be install by hand.
