I came across this tip (well, actually, it's just an undocumented "feature", I guess...) while reading through the makefile and trying to figure it out.

Everyone here probably already knows it, but it might be useful to put on the official build instructions page, or on the wiki build instructions.

You can avoid having to connect to the OpenOffice.org CVS site (which I occasionally have problems with) and downloading the ENTIRE tree through CVS by just downloading the source tarball from http://download.openoffice.org/2.0.2/index.html. (2.0.2 is what's currently used in the build.

You then just put OOo_2.0.2_src.tar.gz in your $NEO_HOME directory, and start the build.

It will still connect briefly (Just to double check that the last module has been checked out) - but I've found that it's a lot faster to download the tarball first.

A better link for the source tarball download (more direct) is http://download.openoffice.org/2.0.2/source.html

This is actually quite interesting, as I can't always have my internet connection up for the entire duration of a build. So I just put the tarball (as is) in the $NEO_HOME directoy, next to the neojava folder, and start the build ? And then, assuming I have the latest NeoOffice source, and once the "brief connection" with the OOo CVS has been established, could it be possible to build w/out being connected to the internet ?

you are using the tarbill to replace the CVS download, so youwill have to un-tar it into the folder.

as for the connection, the make fill will connect to the internet as is, you would have to modify it to keep it from doing so.

Not exactly. Back when James frequented these fora, he convinced me to have the makefile look for an OOo source *.tar.gz file. If such a file is found, the makefile will not try to connect to the OOo CVS server.

Well, thanks for your replies, but I'm even more confused. Should I un-tar the file then ? Patrick says that the makefille will look for the .tar.gz file, so I assume that it can handle all the necessary steps to un-tar it as well, but jake claims otherwise.

My internet connection would be on to allow the makefile to connect briefly to the OOo anonymous CVS, but my mother will probably turn off the router at some point ...

No - you do not need to untar the file - the makefile will untar it for you.

And from what I've seen, it actually *does* do a quick connection to CVS after it's done untarring...that might be a problem with the makefile, it might be by design.

Here is the line from the makefile that does the connect (if the tarball exists)

Code:

# cvs seems to always fail so check that the last module has been checked out
   cd "$(BUILD_HOME)/agg" ; cvs -d "$(OO_CVSROOT)" update -r "$(OO_TAG)"


I'm guessing that on that line, we could do the "if [ ! -e "$(OO_SOURCE_TAR_GZ_FILE)" ]" magic...but I don't know if that has any other repercussions.

Thanks. That answers my questions. The next time I'll attempt to build Neo, I'll check whether it does or doesn't connect to the OOo CVS.

Okay. Saturday I attempted to build Alpha 3 for PPC, with the source for OOo in my $NEO_HOME folder and an internet connection up for the first few hours of the build. I logged into the OOo CVS, and although it did connect to it it didn't seem to download anything.

All went fine until this morning : Terminal was doing something with "build.neo_vcl_patch" and "build.neo_patches" when it created a "source/NeoOffice2.0_Alpha_3" and attempted to connect to Neo's anonymous CVS to retrieve something and store it there. I wasn't connected to the internet, so the build broke.

It's no big deal, but since I am not familiar with make, I'd like to know how I can resume the build where I left it now that I am connected to the net again.

AFAIK all you have to do is just restart the build, it will not rebuild the already built parts.

Thanks. I feared that re-launching the build would cause make to check every step of the build (to see if it had been completed) until it reached what it was doing previously, but apparently I was wrong (good news) Smile

i think it will check them, but the check is much faster since it isn't building.

Well it did not : the build started right where it had left as soon as I pressed enter ...
