1 How to configure an Amazon Linux AMI for EC2 to build Hyrax

This describes how to set up a vanilla Amazon Linux AMI virtual machine so that we can build the Hyrax data server.

2 Amazon Linux AMI versions

These instructions have been amended to cover:

  • Amazon Linux AMI 2012.03

3 Initial configuration

Set up general build stuff that you need:

  • yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel
  • yum install junit
  • yum install ant
  • yum install ant-junit.noarch
  • yum install make
  • yum install subversion
  • yum install gcc-c++
  • yum install flex
  • yum install bison
  • yum install curl-devel
  • yum install libxml2-devel
  • yum install libjpeg-devel
  • yum install zlib-devel
  • yum install readline-devel
  • yum install libuuid-devel
  • yum install openssl-devel

4 Other dependencies

  • yum install libicu-devel

4.1 Autotools

  • download the latest versions of autoconf, automake and libtool
  • ./configure, make, make install

5 Hyrax specific configuration

Set up things that are specific to Hyrax

Check out the shrew project
svn co https://scm.opendap.org/sv/trunk/shrew
Change your working directory to the shrew directory.
cd shrew
Source the spath file
. spath
Build the dependancies
cd src/dependencies
make


Copy the Makefile.am.master to Makefile.am
cp Makefile.am.master Makefile.am
Edit the Makefile.am to be certain that the various dependancies are correctly configured.
vim Makefile.am
(Since I am trying to get a new package up I edited this file, mostly I think you should just be able to make the copy and proceed.)
Engage the autotools process and see how far you get...
autoreconf -vif
./configure --prefix=$prefix
make
