Linux Build Environment

M. David Peterson has created a Linux Virtual Appliance that can be used to build IKVM.NET from source in a Linux environment without requiring a lot of complicated setup.

  • Download the appliance VMWare image from http://www.rpath.org/rbuilder/project/nuxleus/release?id=5209
  • Boot it up inside VMWare (Player)
  • Log in as root (no password)
  • Run "conary update --replace-files group-devel=conary.rpath.com@rpl:1"  to get the development tools
  • Run "conary update cli-gac-tag" to install the ikvm assemblies into the GAC.
  • Run "cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@ikvm.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/ikvm co -P ikvm" to get IKVM.NET from cvs.
  • Run "cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.savannah.gnu.org:/sources/classpath co classpath" to get GNU Classpath from cvs.
  • Change into the ikvm directory and run nant.

That's it!

I apologize for the lameness of this, but the comment spam was driving me nuts. In order to be able to post a comment, you need to answer a simple question. Hopefully this question is easy enough not to annoy serious commenters, but hard enough to keep the spammers away.

Anti-Spam Question: What method on java.lang.System returns an object's original hashcode (i.e. the one that would be returned by java.lang.Object.hashCode() if it wasn't overridden)? (case is significant)
