Fetching tarball before the build

Share Button

I just rebased one of my upstream child work spaces to milestone 77 (DEV300_m77), and noticed my build breaking all over the place due to missing patches for external libraries. After some digging, here is the step I was missing.

./fetch_tarballs.sh ooo.lst

which apparently downloads a whole bunch of external source packages from http://hg.services.openoffice.org/binaries that the build depends on, and places them into their respective location within the source tree. After this was done, my build proceeded normally.

  1. Actually this is also called by the bootstrap script. I had the same surprise: it takes ages to download the first time…

      Ah ok. I was wondering why this was not automated, but I guess it is.

      My bootstrap didn’t fetch the packages for some reason, though…
