Building PKI Components Collectively via Subversion

Checking out PKI Source Code via Subversion

Follow the instructions to checkout a read-only copy of the PKI source code using subversion:

Building All PKI Components Collectively as a Group

In order to build all PKI components collectively as a group, the sudo executable must be available on the development machine. If present, then all PKI components can be built collectively through the use of two scripts, prepare_pki and build_pki, by becoming the root user and adding the following two lines to the /etc/sudoers file:

{username}  ALL = NOPASSWD:       /bin/rpm
{username}  ALL = NOPASSWD:       /usr/bin/yum

First, become the desired {username}, and change directories into the scripts directory:

cd src/pki/{flavor}/scripts      where "{flavor}" equals "linux"

Next, invoke the preparation script to install all PKI support packages:

script
./prepare_pki
^D
mv typescript typescript.prepare_pki

NOTE: While the script command is optional, the user may find it useful for debugging purposes.

Finally, issue the following command to build all PKI components:

script
./build_pki
^D
mv typescript typescript.build_pki

NOTE: While the script command is optional, the user may find it useful for debugging purposes.

All non-UI PKI RPMs will be created in src/pki/release/pki/base/{component}/dist/rpmpkg/RPMS/{arch} and src/pki/release/pki/base/{component}/dist/rpmpkg/RPMS/noarch, while all PKI UI components will be created in src/pki/release/pki/{flavor}/{component}/dist/rpmpkg/RPMS/noarch. All PKI RPMs will also be automatically installed on the system.
