To build installers for the Access Grid, you'll need to have the required dependencies installed on your system, as found on the dependencies page.
svn co https://svn.ci.uchicago.edu/svn/accessgrid/build/macosx
svn co https://svn.ci.uchicago.edu/svn/accessgrid/build/win32
- The Subversion checkout will include dependency packages that are required for the build. Some of these will be large compressed files.
- The SetupBuild.py line will expand the compressed packages into the build space.
- The BuildSnapshot.py command will launch the build. The build process should abort if any step fails, printing an error message. Run "BuildSnapshot.py -h" to see available options.
- BuildSnapshot.py performs a Subversion checkout of the AccessGrid code. If you want to build from a local checkout of the code, you can use the "-s" and "--no-checkout" options to skip the Subversion checkout and use your local AccessGrid directory.
