Building Kamailio RPMs for Enterprise Linux and Fedora ------------------------------------------------------ This is a simple process: 1) Create a clean appliance using BoxGrinder (always worth doing as it makes sure your build appliance contains only standard versions of packages and has all updates applied). 2) Start the appliance and log in. 3) Prepare the appliance for RPM builds 4) Either: a) Checkout the version of Kamailio you want to build from GIT (instructions available on the Kamailio wiki at and create a release tar file, or b) Download a release tar file from and extract the correct kamailio.spec file from it 5) Run "rpmbuild" to create the RPMs If you don't have BoxGrinder installed ( you can do so in Fedora using the command: # [sudo] yum install rubygem-boxgrinder-build Note: The host operating system you install BoxGrinder on does not have to be same operating system flavour, architecture, or version as the appliance you are creating. It is entirely sensible to use an x86_64 Fedora host to build an i386 CentOS appliance and i386 CentOS Kamailio RPMs. Example: Building Kamailio 3.4.x (master) x86_64 binary RPMs from GIT for Fedora 17. This example assumes: - You have Internet connectivity - You have BoxGrinder, and libvirtd (and any management software required for it) installed locally. - You have obtained the kamailio-build.appl file from pkg/kamailio/fedora/17 (either by download from or from a local checkout of the code) - Your host operating system is x86_64. If you want to build a different version of Kamailio, a different set of RPMs (different rpmbuild options), or install and run the appliance on a remote (or different type of virtual) machine you should only need to make small changes to the commands in this example. 1) Create a clean Fedora 17 x86_64 appliance using BoxGrinder: # mkdir appliance # cd appliance # [sudo] boxgrinder-build \ [path to]/pkg/kamailio/fedora/17/kamailio-build.appl -d libvirt \ --delivery-config connection_uri:qemu:///system,\ image_delivery_uri:/var/lib/libvirt/images,overwrite:true,\ domain_type:kvm 2) Start the appliance and log in: - I prefer to use virt-manager for this. The default username and password for the appliance is "root" and "kamailio" respectively. 3) Prepare the appliance for RPM builds: # mkdir -p rpmbuild/SOURCES 4) Checkout Kamailio 3.4.x (master) and create a release tar file: # git clone --depth 1 git:// kamailio # cd kamailio Note: if not building master you want to do a "git checkout" after this # git archive --output ../rpmbuild/SOURCES/kamailio-3.4.0_src.tar.gz \ --prefix=kamailio-3.4.0/ master 5) Run "rpmbuild" to create the binary RPMs: # rpmbuild -bb pkg/kamailio/fedora/17/kamailio.spec Once the build is complete the RPMs will be in ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64.
