Building on your own packages
It is highly recommended to use the prebuilt Checkmk packages we provide. But if you really want to build your own packages, you either need to download the source packages from our website or check out the Git repository.
We're building the Checkmk packages within specific docker images for the different distros. Please find the Dockerfiles under buildscripts/infrastructure/build-nodes/ in order to get an idea what's needed to build it locally. However, keep in mind that those Dockerfiles are heavily relying on our infrastructure and won't build from scratch on your machine.
If you have the dependencies in place, you can either create RPM or DEB packages, depending on your Linux distribution.
To build an RPM:
To create a DEB package:
DEBFULLNAME="Mr. Buildmaster" DEBEMAIL="email@example.com" make deb
Don't forget to insert your name and mail address.
As a result you should find packages of the form
check-mk-[edition]-[version].[deb|rpm] in your current directory.
