Most of the development tools (e.g. make, m4) should already be installed by the Gentoo base system

to:

Most of the development tools (e.g. make, m4) should already be installed by the Gentoo base system. The only needed packages that don't get installed by the base system are psyco, ccache, openjade, cvs, and subversion. Install them with the following:

emerge psyco ccache openjade cvs subversion

You might want to use emerge -p psyco ccache openjade cvs subversion first to verify which of the packages are already installed.

July 20, 2005, at 02:22 AM by Mike Frysinger -- remove bitkeeper from Gentoo since it's no longer free
Deleted line 113:
emerge bitkeeper
Changed lines 116-119 from:

Note: As Gentoo package BitKeeper depends on X11 (the installer is graphical), so unless you want to install this, it is better to install it manually. Go to http://www.bitkeeper.com, do a registered download and run the binary file with target directory set, e.g. /usr/libexec, rather than running the installer.

Windows XP instructions

There are two basic approaches on Windows XP: Cygwin and coLinux. I've (bobtm) had limited success with the former, possibly due to lack of RAM, but the latter works. Below is a sketch on how to do the build with Gentoo on coLinux.

  1. Go to http://www.colinux.org and read through the FAQ to get an idea of how it works.
  2. You have a choice between: The the SourceForge? stable release 0.6.1 based on kernel 2.4 (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=98788) or CVS development snapshots based on kernel 2.6 [either from from colinux.org (http://www.colinux.org/snapshots/) or those provided by Henry Nestler (http://www.henrynestler.com/colinux/binary/)]. I used the second option, but the third also seem to work (I have not completed the build).
  3. Follow the instuctions on http://www.colinux.org/wiki/index.php/GentooCoreImage
  4. Follow the instructions for Gentoo given on this page

Note: You should have at least 768-1024MB of RAM on your computer in order to avoid excess paging - your coLinux memory should be at least 512MB and a swap file should be mounted before building unslung.

 apt-get install sed   for GNU sed
 apt-get install docbook   for docbook-utils and sgmltools
 apt-get install bison  for Bison
 apt-get install make for Make
 apt-get install libc6-dev' for glibc headers

You can also download (and install) http://hrw.one.pl/_pliki/oe/openembedded_0.1-2_all.deb this package which depends on all required programs (suggests docbook and bc).

(20040630) On my Debian stable 3.0r1 I have to install the 'stat' command too, or oemake breaks compiling base-files-3.0.14-r9 . Just:

 apt-get install coreutils  

Mandrake Linux instructions

Follow the Debian instructions, only using =urpmi= instead of =apt-get install=. Also, =ccache= is not an official Mandrake package. You can find it in the contrib section of any Mandrake mirror or seach for it using the Mandrake Club rpm database [http://rpms.mandrakeclub.com].

Ports has most of these: python, fileutils, gsed, ccache, jade, docbook, dsssl-docbook-modular, sgmltools
