Where will I put code and screenshots?

What has been released this week:

Steps to meet requirements

  • sudo apt-get install buildbot
  • sudo apt-get install git-core //This is to get the version control that cairo uses, it is called GIT

Steps to make it happen

  • buildbot create-master ~/cairomaster
  • Put the master.cfg to the the created master
  • buildbot create-slave ~/cairoslave localhost:9876 cairoslave
  • buildbot start ~/cairomaster
  • buildbot start ~/cairoslave
  • firefox http://localhost:8020 //This is to be able to see the results of the build

Build upon source changes in the GIT repository Med      
Try to use the GIT source class that buildbot has Med      
Package results and make them available Pass the results of "make test" and "make html" to the master and allow to download them Med      
Write a CSS file for the waterfall view   Med      
Email notifications? IRC notifications?   Med      


  • The first time the command GIT CLONE works because there is nothing before that execution but the second run should be an update instead of a checkout. What could be the proper GIT command to have as the step?
I have decided to remove the checked out code and checkout the trunk before each build
  • I need to do SUDO MAKE INSTALL, but this requires user's input which breaks the automated concept. What could be the right step?
Used ./configure --prefix=/path/to/somewhere to avoid building somewhere where I require to have sudo privileges

  • sudo make install //I had to use SUDO
  • whereis libpixman-1
  • cd ../cairo && ./
  • ./configure
  • make
  • make install //the same problem with SUDO

  • sudo make install

Running the tests and getting an index.html file with them

  • make test //takes long time
  • cd test && make html
  • firefox index.html
