ohair@333 106 This file often describes specific requirements for what we call the
ohair@1544 107 "minimum build environments" (MBE) for this
ohair@1544 108 specific release of the JDK,
ohair@333 109 Building with the MBE will generate the most compatible
ohair@333 110 bits that install on, and run correctly on, the most variations
ohair@333 111 of the same base OS and hardware architecture.
ohair@333 112 These usually represent what is often called the
ohair@333 113 least common denominator platforms.
ohair@333 114 It is understood that most developers will NOT be using these
ohair@333 115 specific platforms, and in fact creating these specific platforms
ohair@333 116 may be difficult due to the age of some of this software.

ohair@1544 198 These same sources do indeed build on many more systems than the
ohair@1544 199 above older generation systems, again the above is just a minimum.
ohair@1544 200 <p>
ohair@1544 201 Compilation problems with newer or different C/C++ compilers is a
ohair@1544 202 common problem.
ohair@1544 203 Similarly, compilation problems related to changes to the
ohair@1544 204 <tt>/usr/include</tt> or system header files is also a
ohair@1544 205 common problem with newer or unreleased OS versions.
ohair@1544 206 Please report these types of problems as bugs so that they
ohair@1544 207 can be dealt with accordingly.

ohair@333 488 to where various components have been installed.
ohair@333 489 Where possible the makefiles will attempt to located the various
ohair@333 490 components in the default locations or any component specific
ohair@333 491 variable settings.
ohair@333 492 When the normal defaults fail or components cannot be found,
ohair@333 493 the various

ohair@333 498 <tt>jdk/make/</tt>
ohair@333 499 if you need help in setting up your environment variables.

ohair@333 523 A few notes about using GNU make:
ohair@333 524 <ul>
ohair@333 525 <li>
ohair@333 526 In general, you need GNU make version 3.78.1 or newer.

ohair@333 528 <li>
ohair@333 529 Place the location of the GNU make binary in the <tt>PATH</tt>.
ohair@333 530 </li>
ohair@333 531 <li>
ohair@333 532 <strong>Linux:</strong>
ohair@333 533 The <tt>/usr/bin/make</tt> command should work fine for you.
ohair@333 534 </li>
ohair@333 535 <li>
ohair@333 536 <strong>Solaris:</strong>
ohair@333 537 Do NOT use <tt>/usr/bin/make</tt> on Solaris.
ohair@333 538 If your Solaris system has the software
ohair@333 539 from the Solaris Companion CD installed,
ohair@333 540 you should use <tt>gmake</tt>
ohair@333 541 which will be located in either the <tt>/opt/sfw/bin</tt> or
ohair@333 542 <tt>/usr/sfw/bin</tt> directory.
ohair@819 543 In more recent versions of Solaris GNU make can be found
ohair@819 544 at <tt>/usr/bin/gmake</tt>.
ohair@333 545 </li>
ohair@333 546 <li>
ohair@333 547 <strong>Windows:</strong>
ohair@4084 548 Make sure you start your build inside a bash/sh/ksh shell
ohair@4084 549 and are using a <tt>make.exe</tt> utility built for that
ohair@4084 550 environment (a cygwin <tt>make.exe</tt> is not the same

ohair@333 553 <br>
ohair@333 554 <b>WARNING:</b> Watch out for make version 3.81, it may
ohair@819 555 not work due to a lack of support for MS-DOS drive letter paths
ohair@819 556 like <tt>C:/</tt> or <tt>C:\</tt>.
ohair@333 557 Use a 3.80 version, or find a newer

ohair@819 562 Use of this older 3.80 make.exe may require that you install the

ohair@819 564 no longer installed by default by the cygwin installer.

duke@0 741 <strong>Windows:</strong>
ohair@333 742 Note that GNU make is a historic utility and is based very
ohair@333 743 heavily on shell scripting, so it does not tolerate the Windows habit
ohair@333 744 of having spaces in pathnames or the use of the <tt>\</tt>characters in pathnames.
ohair@333 745 Luckily on most Windows systems, you can use <tt>/</tt>instead of \, and
ohair@333 746 there is always a 'short' pathname without spaces for any path that
ohair@333 747 contains spaces.
ohair@333 748 Unfortunately, this short pathname can be somewhat dynamic and the
ohair@333 749 formula is difficult to explain.
ohair@333 750 You can use <tt>cygpath</tt> utility to map pathnames with spaces
ohair@333 751 or the <tt>\</tt>character into the <tt>C:/</tt> style of pathname
ohair@333 752 (called 'mixed'), e.g.
ohair@333 753 <tt>cygpath -s -m "<i>path</i>"</tt>.
ohair@333 754 <p>
ohair@333 755 The makefiles will try to translate any pathnames supplied
ohair@333 756 to it into the <tt>C:/</tt> style automatically.
ohair@333 757 <p>
ohair@333 758 Note that use of CYGWIN creates a unique problem with regards to
ohair@333 759 setting <a href="#path"><tt>PATH</tt></a>. Normally on Windows
ohair@333 760 the <tt>PATH</tt> variable contains directories
ohair@333 761 separated with the ";" character (Solaris and Linux uses ":").
ohair@333 762 With CYGWIN, it uses ":", but that means that paths like "C:/path"
ohair@333 763 cannot be placed in the CYGWIN version of <tt>PATH</tt> and
ohair@333 764 instead CYGWIN uses something like <tt>/cygdrive/c/path</tt>
ohair@333 765 which CYGWIN understands, but only CYGWIN understands.
ohair@333 766 So be careful with paths on Windows.

duke@0 817 <blockquote>
ohair@333 818 Depending on the platform, the OpenJDK build process has some basic
ohair@333 819 dependencies on components not part of the OpenJDK sources.
ohair@333 820 Some of these are specific to a platform, some even specific to
ohair@333 821 an architecture.
ohair@333 822 Each dependency will have a set of ALT variables that can be set
ohair@333 823 to tell the makefiles where to locate the component.
ohair@333 824 In most cases setting these ALT variables may not be necessary
ohair@333 825 and the makefiles will find defaults on the system in standard
ohair@333 826 install locations or through component specific variables.

ohair@333 830 All OpenJDK builds require access to the previously released

ohair@4084 833 <a href=""
ohair@4084 834 target="_blank">JDK 6 download site</a>.
ohair@333 835 For build performance reasons
ohair@333 836 is very important that this bootstrap JDK be made available on the
ohair@333 837 local disk of the machine doing the build.
ohair@333 838 You should always set
ohair@333 839 <tt><a href="#ALT_BOOTDIR">ALT_BOOTDIR</a></tt>
ohair@333 840 to point to the location of

ohair@333 859 This is a temporary situation and these binary plugs will be
ohair@333 860 replaced with fully open source replacements as soon as possible.
ohair@333 861 So currently, in order to build a complete OpenJDK image,
ohair@333 862 you must first download and install the appropriate
ohair@333 863 binary plug bundles for the OpenJDK, go to the

ohair@333 875 </blockquote>
ohair@333 876 A prompt will be issued for acceptance of these binary plug files.
ohair@333 877 During the OpenJDK build process these "binary plugs"
ohair@333 878 for the encumbered components will be copied into your
ohair@333 879 resulting OpenJDK binary build image.
ohair@333 880 These binary plug files are only for the purpose of
ohair@333 881 building an OpenJDK binary.
ohair@333 882 Make sure you set

ohair@333 1638 <h2><a name="troubleshooting">Troubleshooting</a></h2>
ohair@333 1639 <blockquote>
ohair@333 1640 A build can fail for any number of reasons.
ohair@333 1641 Most failures
ohair@333 1642 are a result of trying to build in an environment in which all the
ohair@333 1643 pre-build requirements have not been met.
ohair@333 1644 The first step in
ohair@333 1645 troubleshooting a build failure is to recheck that you have satisfied
ohair@333 1646 all the pre-build requirements for your platform.
ohair@333 1647 Look for the check list of the platform you are building on in the
ohair@333 1648 <a href="#contents">Table of Contents</a>.
ohair@333 1649 <p>
ohair@333 1650 You can validate your build environment by using the <tt>sanity</tt>
ohair@333 1651 target.
ohair@333 1652 Any errors listed
ohair@333 1653 will stop the build from starting, and any warnings may result in
ohair@333 1654 a flawed product build.
ohair@333 1655 We strongly encourage you to evaluate every
ohair@333 1656 sanity check warning and fix it if required, before you proceed
ohair@333 1657 further with your build.
ohair@333 1658 <p>
ohair@333 1659 Some of the more common problems with builds are briefly described
ohair@333 1660 below, with suggestions for remedies.
ohair@333 1661 <ul>
ohair@333 1662 <li>
ohair@333 1663 <b>Slow Builds:</b>
ohair@333 1664 <blockquote>
ohair@333 1665 If your build machine seems to be overloaded from too many
ohair@333 1666 simultaneous C++ compiles, try setting the <tt>HOTSPOT_BUILD_JOBS</tt>
ohair@333 1667 variable to <tt>1</tt> (if you're using a multiple CPU
ohair@333 1668 machine, setting it to more than the the number of CPUs is probably
ohair@333 1669 not a good idea).
ohair@333 1670 <p>
ohair@333 1671 Creating the javadocs can be very slow, if you are running
ohair@333 1672 javadoc, consider skipping that step.
ohair@333 1673 <p>
ohair@333 1674 Faster hardware and more RAM always helps too.
ohair@333 1675 The VM build tends to be CPU intensive (many C++ compiles),
ohair@333 1676 and the rest of the JDK will often be disk intensive.
ohair@333 1677 <p>
ohair@333 1678 Faster compiles are possible using a tool called
ohair@333 1679 <a href="" target="_blank">ccache</a>.
ohair@333 1680 </blockquote>
ohair@333 1681 </li>
ohair@333 1682 <li>
ohair@333 1683 <b>File time issues:</b>
ohair@333 1684 <blockquote>
ohair@333 1685 If you see warnings that refer to file time stamps, e.g.
ohair@333 1686 <blockquote>
ohair@333 1687 <i>Warning message:</i><tt> File `xxx' has modification time in
ohair@333 1688 the future.</tt>
ohair@333 1689 <br>
ohair@333 1690 <i>Warning message:</i> <tt> Clock skew detected. Your build may
ohair@333 1691 be incomplete.</tt>
ohair@333 1692 </blockquote>
ohair@333 1693 These warnings can occur when the clock on the build machine is out of
ohair@333 1694 sync with the timestamps on the source files. Other errors, apparently
ohair@333 1695 unrelated but in fact caused by the clock skew, can occur along with
ohair@333 1696 the clock skew warnings. These secondary errors may tend to obscure the
ohair@333 1697 fact that the true root cause of the problem is an out-of-sync clock.
ohair@333 1698 For example, an out-of-sync clock has been known to cause an old
ohair@333 1699 version of javac to be used to compile some files, resulting in errors
ohair@333 1700 when the pre-1.4 compiler ran across the new <tt>assert</tt> keyword
ohair@333 1701 in the 1.4 source code.
ohair@333 1702 <p>
ohair@333 1703 If you see these warnings, reset the clock on the build
ohair@333 1704 machine, run "<tt><i>gmake</i> clobber</tt>" or delete the directory
ohair@333 1705 containing the build output, and restart the build from the beginning.

ohair@1544 1721 only install the 64-bit version of the libstdc++ package.
ohair@333 1722 Various parts of the JDK build require a static
ohair@333 1723 link of the C++ runtime libraries to allow for maximum
ohair@333 1724 portability of the built images.
