Non-debug builds of Open Solaris not far away

Open Solaris

I’ve been having a look at what needs to happen to make this work. My main aim in doing this is to make good application of the KISS Principle. I wanted to make minimal change for the best effect.

I’ve had the answer for bfu and Install for a while now (and the modifications to those are only a matter of a few lines with some smart ksh variable substitution), but it was waiting on us coming up with a simple way of generating the closed binaries tarchive for both the debug and non-debug builds.

A few ideas had occured to me, but they all had largish changes to the way things worked involved, and I really didn’t want to go that way.</P

This morning on the way into the office (on my 90 minute train ride), I think I may have come up with an answer.

Without going in to too much detail (as I haven’t had a chance to speak to Mike Kupfer about it yet), it should involve a pretty simple addition to the build() function in script to generate the tarchives as a part of a normal nightly run inside Sun if the appropriate flag is set in the environment script for

Mike already has a script for generating the debug tarchive. If we run this during a nightly on a non-debug build, we should end up with a non-debug set of closed binaries. This will definitely help with folks already attempting to benchmark!

With luck we might have this going shortly.
