ohair@11 106 This file often describes specific requirements for what we call the
ohair@47 107 "minimum build environments" (MBE) for this
ohair@47 108 specific release of the JDK,
ohair@11 109 Building with the MBE will generate the most compatible
ohair@11 110 bits that install on, and run correctly on, the most variations
ohair@11 111 of the same base OS and hardware architecture.
ohair@11 112 These usually represent what is often called the
ohair@11 113 least common denominator platforms.
ohair@11 114 It is understood that most developers will NOT be using these
ohair@11 115 specific platforms, and in fact creating these specific platforms
ohair@11 116 may be difficult due to the age of some of this software.

ohair@47 198 These same sources do indeed build on many more systems than the
ohair@47 199 above older generation systems, again the above is just a minimum.
ohair@47 200 <p>
ohair@47 201 Compilation problems with newer or different C/C++ compilers is a
ohair@47 202 common problem.
ohair@47 203 Similarly, compilation problems related to changes to the
ohair@47 204 <tt>/usr/include</tt> or system header files is also a
ohair@47 205 common problem with newer or unreleased OS versions.
ohair@47 206 Please report these types of problems as bugs so that they
ohair@47 207 can be dealt with accordingly.

ohair@11 488 to where various components have been installed.
ohair@11 489 Where possible the makefiles will attempt to located the various
ohair@11 490 components in the default locations or any component specific

ohair@11 492 When the normal defaults fail or components cannot be found,
ohair@11 493 the various

ohair@11 495 can be used to help the makefiles locate components.

ohair@11 498 <tt>jdk/make/jdk_generic_profile.sh</tt>
ohair@11 499 if you need help in setting up your environment variables.
ohair@11 500 A build could be as simple as:

ohair@11 523 A few notes about using GNU make:
ohair@11 524 <ul>
ohair@11 525 <li>
ohair@11 526 In general, you need GNU make version 3.78.1 or newer.
ohair@11 527 </li>
ohair@11 528 <li>
ohair@11 529 Place the location of the GNU make binary in the <tt>PATH</tt>.
ohair@11 530 </li>
ohair@11 531 <li>
ohair@11 532 <strong>Linux:</strong>
ohair@11 533 The <tt>/usr/bin/make</tt> command should work fine for you.
ohair@11 534 </li>
ohair@11 535 <li>
ohair@11 536 <strong>Solaris:</strong>
ohair@11 537 Do NOT use <tt>/usr/bin/make</tt> on Solaris.
ohair@11 538 If your Solaris system has the software
ohair@11 539 from the Solaris Companion CD installed,
ohair@11 540 you should use <tt>gmake</tt>
ohair@11 541 which will be located in either the <tt>/opt/sfw/bin</tt> or
ohair@11 542 <tt>/usr/sfw/bin</tt> directory.
ohair@23 543 In more recent versions of Solaris GNU make can be found
ohair@23 544 at <tt>/usr/bin/gmake</tt>.
ohair@11 545 </li>
ohair@11 546 <li>
ohair@11 547 <strong>Windows:</strong>
ohair@11 548 Make sure you start your build inside a bash/sh/ksh shell.
ohair@11 549 <br>
ohair@11 550 <b>WARNING:</b> Watch out for make version 3.81, it may
ohair@23 551 not work due to a lack of support for MS-DOS drive letter paths
ohair@23 552 like <tt>C:/</tt> or <tt>C:\</tt>.
ohair@11 553 Use a 3.80 version, or find a newer
ohair@47 554 version that has this problem fixed.
ohair@11 555 The older 3.80 version of make.exe can be downloaded with this
ohair@11 556 <a href="http://cygwin.paracoda.com/release/make/make-3.80-1.tar.bz2" target="_blank">
ohair@11 557 link</a>.
ohair@23 558 Use of this older 3.80 make.exe may require that you install the
ohair@23 559 libintl2.dll library or libintl2 cygwin package which is
ohair@23 560 no longer installed by default by the cygwin installer.

ohair@23 566 <br>
ohair@23 567 It's hoped that when make 3.82 starts shipping in a future cygwin
ohair@23 568 release that this MS-DOS path issue will be fixed.

ohair@11 736 <blockquote>
duke@0 737 <strong>Windows:</strong>
ohair@11 738 Note that GNU make is a historic utility and is based very
ohair@11 739 heavily on shell scripting, so it does not tolerate the Windows habit
ohair@11 740 of having spaces in pathnames or the use of the <tt>\</tt>characters in pathnames.
ohair@11 741 Luckily on most Windows systems, you can use <tt>/</tt>instead of \, and
ohair@11 742 there is always a 'short' pathname without spaces for any path that
ohair@11 743 contains spaces.
ohair@11 744 Unfortunately, this short pathname can be somewhat dynamic and the
ohair@11 745 formula is difficult to explain.
ohair@11 746 You can use <tt>cygpath</tt> utility to map pathnames with spaces
ohair@11 747 or the <tt>\</tt>character into the <tt>C:/</tt> style of pathname
ohair@11 748 (called 'mixed'), e.g.
ohair@11 749 <tt>cygpath -s -m "<i>path</i>"</tt>.
ohair@11 750 <p>
ohair@11 751 The makefiles will try to translate any pathnames supplied
ohair@11 752 to it into the <tt>C:/</tt> style automatically.
ohair@11 753 <p>
ohair@11 754 Note that use of CYGWIN creates a unique problem with regards to
ohair@11 755 setting <a href="#path"><tt>PATH</tt></a>. Normally on Windows
ohair@11 756 the <tt>PATH</tt> variable contains directories
ohair@11 757 separated with the ";" character (Solaris and Linux uses ":").
ohair@11 758 With CYGWIN, it uses ":", but that means that paths like "C:/path"
ohair@11 759 cannot be placed in the CYGWIN version of <tt>PATH</tt> and
ohair@11 760 instead CYGWIN uses something like <tt>/cygdrive/c/path</tt>
ohair@11 761 which CYGWIN understands, but only CYGWIN understands.
ohair@11 762 So be careful with paths on Windows.

duke@0 813 <blockquote>
ohair@11 814 Depending on the platform, the OpenJDK build process has some basic
ohair@11 815 dependencies on components not part of the OpenJDK sources.
ohair@11 816 Some of these are specific to a platform, some even specific to
ohair@11 817 an architecture.
ohair@11 818 Each dependency will have a set of ALT variables that can be set
ohair@11 819 to tell the makefiles where to locate the component.
ohair@11 820 In most cases setting these ALT variables may not be necessary
ohair@11 821 and the makefiles will find defaults on the system in standard
ohair@11 822 install locations or through component specific variables.

ohair@11 826 All OpenJDK builds require access to the previously released
ohair@11 827 JDK 6, this is often called a bootstrap JDK.
ohair@11 828 The JDK 6 binaries can be downloaded from Sun's
ohair@11 829 <a href="http://java.sun.com/javase/1.6.0/download.html" target="_blank">JDK 6 download site</a>.
ohair@11 830 For build performance reasons
ohair@11 831 is very important that this bootstrap JDK be made available on the
ohair@11 832 local disk of the machine doing the build.
ohair@11 833 You should always set
ohair@11 834 <tt><a href="#ALT_BOOTDIR">ALT_BOOTDIR</a></tt>
ohair@11 835 to point to the location of
ohair@11 836 the bootstrap JDK installation, this is the directory pathname
ohair@11 837 that contains a <tt>bin, lib, and include</tt>
ohair@11 838 It's also a good idea to also place its <tt>bin</tt> directory
ohair@11 839 in the <tt>PATH</tt> environment variable, although it's
ohair@11 840 not required.
ohair@11 841 <p>
ohair@11 842 <strong>Solaris:</strong>
ohair@11 843 Some pre-installed JDK images may be available to you in the

ohair@11 845 If you don't set

ohair@11 853 under an open-source license.
ohair@11 854 This is a temporary situation and these binary plugs will be
ohair@11 855 replaced with fully open source replacements as soon as possible.
ohair@11 856 So currently, in order to build a complete OpenJDK image,
ohair@11 857 you must first download and install the appropriate
ohair@11 858 binary plug bundles for the OpenJDK, go to the
ohair@11 859 <a href="http://openjdk.java.net" target="_blank">OpenJDK</a> site and select
ohair@47 860 the
ohair@47 861 "<b>Bundles(7)</b>"
ohair@47 862 link and download the binaryplugs for
ohair@11 863 your particular platform.
ohair@11 864 The file downloaded is a jar file that must be extracted by running
ohair@11 865 the jar file with:
ohair@11 866 <blockquote>
ohair@11 867 <pre>
ohair@11 868 <tt><b>java -jar jdk-7-ea-plug-b<i>nn</i>-<i>os</i>-<i>arch</i>-<i>dd</i>_<i>month</i>_<i>year</i>.jar</b></tt>
ohair@11 869 </pre>
ohair@11 870 </blockquote>
ohair@11 871 A prompt will be issued for acceptance of these binary plug files.
ohair@11 872 During the OpenJDK build process these "binary plugs"
ohair@11 873 for the encumbered components will be copied into your
ohair@11 874 resulting OpenJDK binary build image.
ohair@11 875 These binary plug files are only for the purpose of
ohair@11 876 building an OpenJDK binary.
ohair@11 877 Make sure you set
ohair@11 878 <tt><a href="#ALT_BINARY_PLUGS_PATH">ALT_BINARY_PLUGS_PATH</a></tt>

ohair@11 916 The source contain a cacerts file
ohair@11 917 without CA root certificates.
ohair@11 918 Formal JDK builders will need to secure
ohair@11 919 permission from each public CA and include the certificates into their

ohair@11 921 Failure to provide a populated cacerts file

ohair@11 1186 There are no ALT* variables to change the assumed locations of ALSA,
ohair@11 1187 the makefiles will expect to find the ALSA include files and library at:

ohair@11 1633 <h2><a name="troubleshooting">Troubleshooting</a></h2>
ohair@11 1634 <blockquote>
ohair@11 1635 A build can fail for any number of reasons.
ohair@11 1636 Most failures
ohair@11 1637 are a result of trying to build in an environment in which all the
ohair@11 1638 pre-build requirements have not been met.
ohair@11 1639 The first step in
ohair@11 1640 troubleshooting a build failure is to recheck that you have satisfied
ohair@11 1641 all the pre-build requirements for your platform.
ohair@11 1642 Look for the check list of the platform you are building on in the
ohair@11 1643 <a href="#contents">Table of Contents</a>.
ohair@11 1644 <p>
ohair@11 1645 You can validate your build environment by using the <tt>sanity</tt>
ohair@11 1646 target.
ohair@11 1647 Any errors listed
ohair@11 1648 will stop the build from starting, and any warnings may result in
ohair@11 1649 a flawed product build.
ohair@11 1650 We strongly encourage you to evaluate every
ohair@11 1651 sanity check warning and fix it if required, before you proceed
ohair@11 1652 further with your build.
ohair@11 1653 <p>
ohair@11 1654 Some of the more common problems with builds are briefly described
ohair@11 1655 below, with suggestions for remedies.
ohair@11 1656 <ul>
ohair@11 1657 <li>
ohair@11 1658 <b>Slow Builds:</b>
ohair@11 1659 <blockquote>
ohair@11 1660 If your build machine seems to be overloaded from too many
ohair@11 1661 simultaneous C++ compiles, try setting the <tt>HOTSPOT_BUILD_JOBS</tt>
ohair@11 1662 variable to <tt>1</tt> (if you're using a multiple CPU
ohair@11 1663 machine, setting it to more than the the number of CPUs is probably
ohair@11 1664 not a good idea).
ohair@11 1665 <p>
ohair@11 1666 Creating the javadocs can be very slow, if you are running
ohair@11 1667 javadoc, consider skipping that step.
ohair@11 1668 <p>
ohair@11 1669 Faster hardware and more RAM always helps too.
ohair@11 1670 The VM build tends to be CPU intensive (many C++ compiles),
ohair@11 1671 and the rest of the JDK will often be disk intensive.
ohair@11 1672 <p>
ohair@11 1673 Faster compiles are possible using a tool called
ohair@11 1674 <a href="http://ccache.samba.org/" target="_blank">ccache</a>.
ohair@11 1675 </blockquote>
ohair@11 1676 </li>
ohair@11 1677 <li>
ohair@11 1678 <b>File time issues:</b>
ohair@11 1679 <blockquote>
ohair@11 1680 If you see warnings that refer to file time stamps, e.g.
ohair@11 1681 <blockquote>
ohair@11 1682 <i>Warning message:</i><tt> File `xxx' has modification time in
ohair@11 1683 the future.</tt>
ohair@11 1684 <br>
ohair@11 1685 <i>Warning message:</i> <tt> Clock skew detected. Your build may
ohair@11 1686 be incomplete.</tt>
ohair@11 1687 </blockquote>
ohair@11 1688 These warnings can occur when the clock on the build machine is out of
ohair@11 1689 sync with the timestamps on the source files. Other errors, apparently
ohair@11 1690 unrelated but in fact caused by the clock skew, can occur along with
ohair@11 1691 the clock skew warnings. These secondary errors may tend to obscure the
ohair@11 1692 fact that the true root cause of the problem is an out-of-sync clock.
ohair@11 1693 For example, an out-of-sync clock has been known to cause an old
ohair@11 1694 version of javac to be used to compile some files, resulting in errors
ohair@11 1695 when the pre-1.4 compiler ran across the new <tt>assert</tt> keyword
ohair@11 1696 in the 1.4 source code.
ohair@11 1697 <p>
ohair@11 1698 If you see these warnings, reset the clock on the build
ohair@11 1699 machine, run "<tt><i>gmake</i> clobber</tt>" or delete the directory
ohair@11 1700 containing the build output, and restart the build from the beginning.

ohair@11 1710 <b>Error Message: <tt>libstdc++ not found:</tt></b>
ohair@11 1711 <blockquote>
ohair@11 1712 This is caused by a missing libstdc++.a library.
ohair@11 1713 This is installed as part of a specific package
ohair@11 1714 (e.g. libstdc++.so.devel.386).
ohair@47 1715 By default some 64-bit Linux versions (e.g. Fedora)
ohair@47 1716 only install the 64-bit version of the libstdc++ package.
ohair@11 1717 Various parts of the JDK build require a static
ohair@11 1718 link of the C++ runtime libraries to allow for maximum
ohair@11 1719 portability of the built images.
