 Package Spec for GNUstep

Hi all,

are there any GNUstep fans among the Paldo users?

I'm trying to build some packages for GNUstep. It's the first time that I'm building packages for a distro. Although paldo seem's to make it very simple there are things that I don't know how to handle.

1. I have a package for GNUstep Make. The package compiles and installs fine. After the installation is through a special GNUstep file should be sourced (http://www.gnustep.org/resources/documentation/User/GNUstep/gnustep-howto_3.html#SEC3). I'd like to have it sourced directly after building and installing the package and later on during the system start. So how would I source it within the spec file and how do I tell upkg to put the command
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
. /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh
in a system configuration file? Would I use <cmd> in the spec file? Which config/init file would be the best to source the GNUstep file?

2. When I try to build the second package (GNUstep base) the following show stopper occurs:
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
checking objc/objc.h usability... no
checking objc/objc.h presence... no
checking for objc/objc.h... no
Check to make sure you have a full installation of the GCC
compiler that includes the Objective-C headers and libraries
configure: error: Could not find Objective-C headers
*** Error: ./configure
*** ERROR: gnustep-base-x86_64-glibc-2.8-gcc-4.3-1-1.16.3-1

It seems that gcc is not build with Objective-C support or at least the Objective-C header files are missing. How would I build gcc with Objective-C support in Paldo?

Any hints, tips, tricks and guidance ;-) are appreciated.

Cheers,
Erich

The perfect spec to see how to start cmds or batch-files after a compliation of a program is banshee: http://www.paldo.org/paldo/specs/banshee.xml

for objc we can add gcc-objc or a libobjc package. I've to figure out myself how to enable objc in gcc, so this will take a little. If you want you can post the specs and links for the tarballs, so I can check them so far...

The tar balls I try to install are so far GNUstep Make (ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/core/gnustep-make-2.0.6.tar.gz) and GNUstep Base (ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/core/gnustep-base-1.16.3.tar.gz).

Here are my two spec files:
gnustep-make.xml
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<package name="gnustep-make">
<description>GNUstep Make is the base package for the GNUstep System</description>
<releases>
<release version="2.0.6" revision="1" branch="testing">
<deps>

</deps>
<build>
<script>
<archive name="gnustep-make-$VERSION" compression="gz">
<cmd>./configure </cmd>
<cmd>make</cmd>
<cmd>make install</cmd>
<cmd>echo . /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh > /etc/profile.d/gnustep.sh</cmd>
</archive>
</script>
</build>
</release>
</releases>
</package>


gnustep-base.xml
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<package name="gnustep-base">
<description>GNUstep Make is the base package for the GNUstep System</description>
<releases>
<release version="1.16.3" revision="1" branch="testing">
<deps>
<dep name="gnustep-make"/>
</deps>
<build>
<script>
<archive name="gnustep-base-$VERSION" compression="gz">
<!--cmd>. /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh</cmd-->
<cmd>./configure </cmd>
<cmd>make</cmd>
<cmd>make install</cmd>
</archive>
</script>
</build>
</release>
</releases>
</package>


As long as there is no Objective-C support I guess I can't get much farer than that, because the gnustep-base package fails. For GNUstep this is a basic dependency.

Do you think /etc/profile.d/* would be a good place for a script. It needs to be run for everyone that wants to use GNUstep. (At least I want it to be in a place where it is sourced for everybody. :-)

Another question:
How can packages be build with different parameters, e. g. with different values for ./configure --prefix?

You can use every cmd you want in the xml-script. For example

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
<cmd>./configure --prefix=/usr --some-switch --without-function</cmd>


Also take a look on kim's spec-gen: http://upkg.kim88.ch/

I'm sorry, I think I was unclear.Is something like
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
<cmd>./configure --prefix=$GIVEN_PREFIX</cmd>

possible where GIVEN_PREFIX comes from the upkg invocation like this:
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
upkg-build gnustep-make --GIVEN_PREFIX=/usr/GNUstep

or
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
upkg-build gnustep-make --GIVEN_PREFIX=/usr
?
