THIS PAGE IS OBSOLETE, it describes how to build a branch of MariaDB-5.5 with Cassandra SE. Cassandra SE is a part of MariaDB 10.0, which uses different approach to building.

These are instructions on how exactly we build Cassandra SE packages.

Getting into build environment

See How_to_access_buildbot_VMs page on the internal wiki. The build VM to use is

ezvm  precise-amd64-build

Get into the VM and continue to next section.

Set up Thrift

mkdir build
cd build

sudo apt-get install bzr
sudo apt-get install flex

tar zxvf thrift-0.8.0.tar.gz 
cd thrift-0.8.0/

./configure --prefix=/home/buildbot/build/thrift-inst --without-qt4 --without-c_glib --without-csharp --without-java --without-erlang --without-python --without-perl --without-php --without-php_extension --without-ruby --without-haskell --without-go --without-d
make install

# free some space
make clean
cd .. 

Get the bzr checkout

  • Create another SSH connection to terrier, run the script suggested by motd.
  • Press (C-a C-c) to create another window
  • Copy the base bazaar repository into the VM:
scp /home/psergey/5.5-cassandra-base.tgz runvm:

Then, get back to the window with VM, and run in VM:

tar zxvf ../5.5-cassandra-base.tgz
rm -rf ../5.5-cassandra-base.tgz
cd 5.5-cassandra/
bzr pull lp:~maria-captains/maria/5.5-cassandra


export LIBS="-lthrift"
export LDFLAGS=-L/home/buildbot/build/thrift-inst/lib

mkdir mkdist
cd mkdist
cmake ..
make dist
basename mariadb-*.tar.gz .tar.gz > ../distdirname.txt

cp mariadb-5.5.25.tar.gz ../
cd ..
tar zxf "mariadb-5.5.25.tar.gz"
mv "mariadb-5.5.25" build
cd build
mkdir mkbin
cd mkbin
cmake -DBUILD_CONFIG=mysql_release ..
make -j4 package

This should end with:

CPack: - package: /home/buildbot/build/5.5-cassandra/build/mkbin/mariadb-5.5.25-linux-x86_64.tar.gz generated.

Free up some disk space:

rm -fr ../../mkdist/
mv mariadb-5.5.25-linux-x86_64.tar.gz ../..
cd ../..
rm -rf build

Patch the tarball to include Thrift

mkdir fix-package
cd fix-package
tar zxvf ../mariadb-5.5.25-linux-x86_64.tar.gz 

Verify that mysqld was built with Cassandra SE:

ldd mariadb-5.5.25-linux-x86_64/bin/mysqld

This should point to

cp /home/buildbot/build/thrift-inst/lib/libthrift* mariadb-5.5.25-linux-x86_64/lib/
tar czf mariadb-5.5.25-linux-x86_64.tar.gz mariadb-5.5.25-linux-x86_64/
cp mariadb-5.5.25-linux-x86_64.tar.gz ..

Copy the data out of VM

In the second window (the one that's on terrier, but not in VM), run:

mkdir build-cassandra
cd build-cassandra
scp runvm:/home/buildbot/build/5.5-cassandra/mariadb-5.5.25.tar.gz .
scp runvm:/home/buildbot/build/5.5-cassandra/mariadb-5.5.25-linux-x86_64.tar.gz .
