This is hawkey, library providing simplified C and Python API to libsolv.
Building for Fedora
Packages needed for the build, or the build requires:
- python-devel (or python3-devel for Python 3 build)
- python-nose (or python3-nose for Python 3 build)
From the checkout dir:
mkdir build cd build/ cmake .. # add '-DPYTHON_DESIRED="3"' option for Python 3 build make
Building the documentation, from the build/ directory:
Building from a libsolv checkout
Libsolv is checked out at
/home/<user>/libsolv, build dir is at
mkdir build cd build/ cmake -D LIBSOLV_PATH="/home/<user>/libsolv/" .. make
All unit tests should pass after the build finishes, from the hawkey checkout:
cd build/tests make tests
There are two parts of unit tests: unit tests in C and unit tests in Python. To run the C part of the tests manually, from hawkey checkout:
Manually executing the Python tests:
PYTHONPATH=`readlink -f ./build/src/python/` nosetests -s tests/python/tests/
The PYTHONPATH is unfortunately needed as the Python test suite needs to know where to import the built hawkey modules.
See the hawkey documentation page.
Information internal to the hawkey development is maintained on a github wiki.
