+This file documents how to build the Crowbar installation DVD image.
+ * An unfiltered Internet connection and a decent amount of bandwidth.
+ The first time you try to build Crowbar it will need to download
+ about 1.5 gigs worth of data from the official Ubuntu apt repositories,
+ the Opscode chef repository, the official Openstack 2011.2 PPA, and
+ an official Ubuntu CD image mirror.
+ * bash version 4 or higher
+ uses associative arrays, which bash got in version 4.
+ * mkisofs
+ The end product of the build script is an ISO image that will be used
+ to bootstrap the Crowbar admin node.
+ * debootstrap
+ The build process needs to download all the .debs and gems that
+ Crowbar requires, and we don't want to inadvertently mess up the build
+ machine when we do that. All extra packages are downloaded into a
+ chrooted minimal Ubuntu intall, and we use debootstrap to enable that.
+ * Sudo to root privileges for the following commands:
+ * /bin/mount, /bin/umount
+ We have to be able to mount and umount the Ubuntu .iso image, as well as
+ a tmpfs for debootstrap, and we have to be able to bind mount
+ /dev, /dev/pts, /proc, and /sys into the debootstrap chroot environment.
+ * /usr/sbin/debootstrap
+ debootstrap requires root privileges to run.
+ * /bin/cp
+ We need to copy things into and out of the debootstrap environment to
+ ensure it downloads and caches the right packages.
+ * /usr/sbin/chroot
+ All our package caching is done in a chroot environment, and chroot
+ requires root permissions to run.
+ If you want to allow build_crowbar to run the above commands as root
+ without having to enter a password each time, the
+ includes a sample line you can fix up and add to /etc/sudoers.
+ * A working Sledgehammer tftpboot image.
+ Sledgehammer is a minimal CentOS 5.6 pxe bootable image that we use
+ to perform hardware discovery and configuration for devices that do not
+ have low-level management tools for Ubuntu. You can find information on
+ how to build Sledgehamemr by reading its HOWTO.Non.Redhat file. We do
+ not do fully automated builds of Sledgehammer due to a lack of a CentOS
+ equivalent of debootstrap.
+ * Run
+ The first time it is run, it will download and cache all the files it
+ needs from the official Ubuntu, Chef, and Openstack repositories. It will
+ then build the Crowbar installation image, save it to the current
+ working directory, and print out a message saying where it saved the image.
+ On subsequent runs it will run with the files it cached from the first
+ run, unless update-cache is passed as a parameter to the script.
+ has several different parameters you can tune, either from
+ $HOME/.build-crowbar.conf (for developer use), or from build-crowbar.conf
+ in the current directory (for automated builds).
+ Here are the parameters you can change through the above configuration files:
+ If DEBUG is set to anything, build_crowbar will run in debug mode, and will
+ print a transcript of everything it is doing to standard error.
+ This is the default location where will keep the files
+ it caches, along with the temporary directories used to mount the
+ ISO image, the debootstrap chroot, and the directory we perform the build
+ in. It defaults to $HOME/.crowbar-build-cache.
+ This is the default location where the Ubuntu .iso is stored. It defaults
+ to $CACHE_DIR/iso
+ This is the location that we will save the Crowbar install iamge to.
+ It defaults to the current directory.
+ This is the location that we will mount isos in.
+ It defaults to $CACHE_DIR/image
+ This is the directory we will stage the Crowbar build into.
+ It defaults to $CACHE_DIR/build
+ This is the numeric version of Ubuntu we are building Crowbar with.
+ Right now we base the build on 10.10
+ This is the one-word codename of $UBUNTU_VERSION. Weird things will
+ happen if it is not kept in sync with $UBUNTU_VERSION
+ * PPAS
+ This is an array of PPA archives to look in to gather packages from.
+ This defaults to ("openstack-release/2011.2"), which is the official
+ PPA for the Cactus release of Openstack.
+ This is the base URL for the mirror we will try to download the
+ Ubuntu server ISO from. It defaults to "".
+ This points to the location we expect to find the unpacked Sledgehammer
+ PXE boot archive. It defaults to $CACHE_DIR/tftpboot
+ The default version of Crowbar. Defaults to dev.
+ The name of the ISO that generates.
+ Defaults to openstack-$VERSION.iso
+ The directory that the Crowbar source is cheched out to.
+ Defaults to the directory that is in.
+ The directory that the Sledgehammer source is checked out to.
+ Defaults to $CROWBAR_DIR/../sledgehammer
+ This is the command that will run to clean the tree before
+ staging the Crowbar build.
+ Defaults to 'git clean -f -x -d'
+ * DEBS
+ This is an array of additional packages that will try
+ to populate the .deb cache with. It is empty by default.
+ * GEMS
+ This is an array of additional Ruby gems that build_crowbar will try to
+ populate its .gem cache with. It is empty by default.
+ * AMIS
+ This is an array of urls for AMI images that you want to prepopulate
+ Crowbar with. By default it contains the URL for the official release
+ AMI of Ubuntu 11.04 x86_64 server.
+ This is the directory that we will mount a tmpfs on when we debootstrap
+ a minimal Ubuntu install to prepopulate the deb and gem caches.
+ It defaults to $CACHE_DIR/$UBUNTU_CODENAME.chroot
+ This is the directory that will hold our .deb cache.
+ It defaults to $CACHE_DIR/$UBUNTU_CODENAME/debs
+ This is the directory that will hold our gem cache.
+ It defaults to $CACHE_DIR/gems
+ This is the directory that will hold our AMI cache.
+ It defaults to $CACHE_DIR/amis
+ This is the full name of the Ubuntu ISO we will use as the base of the
+ Crowbar installation image.
+ Defaults to "ubuntu-$UBUNTU_VERSION-server-amd64.iso", which will
+ base us on the amd64 server spin of Ubuntu.
+ This is the directory we will mount $UBUNTU_ISO on when we extract files
+ from it.
+ Defaults to $IMAGE_DIR/$UBUNTU_ISO minus the .iso at the end.
Oops, something went wrong.
