You need Docker installed and running.
CentOS 7 packages:
make -C rpm
This also builds a local repository that you can use later from
We don't have a single target yet for Xenial/Trusty packages but you can build the packages individually, for example:
make -C debs/xenial/archivematica make -C debs/xenial/archivematica-storage-service
Most makefiles support parameters in the form of environment variables. They
may be a bit different between packages, but the most common are
So in order to build a specific branch or version, this command can be used from the folder of the package we want to build:
make BRANCH=qa/1.x VERSION=1.7.0 RELEASE=rc5
Keep in mind that the makefiles are a bit recursive, they will invoke Docker, mount the current folder, and run the deb-build target.
Some makefiles have a
dev target, that give you a shell inside of the Docker
container used to build packages. When you are inside the container, the command
needed to build the packages is:
This repo generates Archivematica packages, but also packages that need to be installed in order for Archivematica to run. They are placed in the ubuntu-extras or centos-extras repos.
In order to add a package to a repo, once it's built and uploaded to a temporary folder at https://packages.archivematica.org, the steps are:
For CentOS/RedHat packages:
- Copy the rpm into centos-extras repo
gpg --detach-sign --armor repodata/repomd.xmlto sign the repository contents
For Ubuntu packages:
Upload the package to packages.archivematica.org
Go to the repository folder ( mnt/st-sites-pub/packages.archivematica.org/1.7.x/ubuntu-externals )
Add the packages with
reprepro includedeb trusty /path/to/packages/*.deb reprepro includedsc trusty /path/to/packages/*.deb
This needs to be repeated for each Ubuntu release and package. More info about managing Ubuntu repositories using reprepro can be found https://wiki.archivematica.org/Release_Process#Build_deb.2Frpm_packages
CentOS 7 packages: see the ./rpm-testing directory for more details.
Ubuntu packages: this is work in progress (see #127).
