This setup assumes that
subversion are installed, although the
svnlite in base can be used instead of
First create a dataset in my homedir for the ports tree and checkout the tree via svn:
root@desk /# zfs create -o mountpoint=/home/vidar/ports -o compression=on zroot/ports root@desk /# svn co https://svn.freebsd.org/ports/head /home/vidar/ports
The ports tree doesn't need to have its own dataset, but giving it one makes it easier to clean up if we make a mess in the tree. If you are not using zfs, skip the first step and create a normal directory instead.
To update the ports tree later, simply run
root@desk /home/vidar/ports# svn up
First create the jails that poudriere uses for building:
root@desk /# poudriere jail -c -j fbsd11-1 -v 11.1-RELEASE [00:00:00] ====>> Creating fbsd11-1 fs... done [00:00:00] ====>> Using pre-distributed MANIFEST for FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE amd64 [00:00:00] ====>> Fetching base.txz for FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE amd64 (...) [00:01:26] ====>> Recording filesystem state for clean... done [00:01:26] ====>> Jail fbsd11-1 11.1-RELEASE-p1 amd64 is ready to be used
Repeat the procedure for all supported releases. At the time of writing, this means
I also like to create jails for
root@desk /# poudriere jail -c -j fbsd-11-1_i386 -v 11.1-RELEASE -a i386 ... [00:01:21] ====>> Jail fbsd11-1_i386 11.1-RELEASE-p1 i386 is ready to be used
root@desk /# pkg install qemu-user-static root@desk /# sysrc qemu_user_static_enable="YES" root@desk /# service qemu_user_static start root@desk /# poudriere jail -c -j fbsd11-1_arm -v release/11.1.0 -a arm.armv6 -m svn+https (...) [01:16:06] ====>> Jail fbsd11-1_arm 11.1-RELEASE 1101001 arm.armv6 is ready to be used
Get the appropriate release numbers from svn.freebsd.org/base/release/. This will download the sources and cross-compile the OS for
armv6. It will take a while.
All the jails are set up and ready to be used for testing ports:
root@desk /# poudriere jail -l JAILNAME VERSION ARCH METHOD TIMESTAMP PATH fbsd10-3 10.3-RELEASE-p16 amd64 ftp 2017-02-18 17:39:10 /usr/local/poudriere/jails/fbsd10-3 fbsd10-3_i386 10.3-RELEASE-p16 i386 ftp 2017-02-18 17:46:29 /usr/local/poudriere/jails/fbsd10-3_i386 fbsd10-3_arm 10.3-RELEASE-p16 r311916 arm.armv6 svn+https 2017-02-18 17:51:35 /usr/local/poudriere/jails/fbsd10-3_arm fbsd11-0 11.0-RELEASE-p7 amd64 ftp 2017-02-18 17:35:31 /usr/local/poudriere/jails/fbsd11-0 fbsd11-0_i386 11.0-RELEASE-p7 i386 ftp 2017-02-18 17:42:03 /usr/local/poudriere/jails/fbsd11-0_i386 fbsd11-0_arm 11.0-RELEASE-p7 r311916 arm.armv6 svn+https 2017-02-18 19:20:03 /usr/local/poudriere/jails/fbsd11-0_arm fbsd11-1_arm 11.1-RELEASE 1101001 r321354 arm.armv6 svn+https 2017-09-02 19:33:30 /usr/local/poudriere/jails/fbsd11-1_arm fbsd11-1 11.1-RELEASE-p1 amd64 ftp 2017-09-02 18:57:03 /usr/local/poudriere/jails/fbsd11-1 fbsd11-1_i386 11.1-RELEASE-p1 i386 ftp 2017-09-02 19:24:59 /usr/local/poudriere/jails/fbsd11-1_i386
We need to register this copy of the ports tree with poudriere:
root@desk /# poudriere ports -c -m null -M /home/vidar/ports -f none -p portsvn
-c is to create a new tree.
-m null will not create a ports tree, only import an existing one.
-M /home/vidar/ports specifies the mount point of the tree.
-f none tells poudriere not to create a file system for the tree.
-p portsvn specifies the name of the ports tree (portsvn in this case).
We can now run a test to see if everything works.
root@desk /# poudriere testport -j fbsd11-1 -p portsvn -i textproc/crunch
There should be a few pages of output, including
====>> Installing textproc/crunch (...) root@fbsd11-1-portsvn:~ #
before it drops you to a shell inside the jail, courtesy of the
-i switch, where you can tinker with it. Press CTRL + d to exit and shutdown the jail.
