[Xorp-hackers] Announcement: XORP code repository is now live again

I am running XORP on Linux Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-13-generic #45-Ubuntu

I have checked out the code from the svn repository and started using
SCons (which I like). Everything is going well and I can run up
"xorp_rtrmgr" successfully.

I am having trouble getting scons to install the binaries and
libraries for olsr.

I have been running scons from the top directory as follows:

scons .
sudo scons install

I have made minor amendments to some of the scons config files which
may (or may not) have helped the situation:

1. SConstruct - modified line:

env['WITH_OLSR'] = ARGUMENTS.get('enable-olsr', False)


env['WITH_OLSR'] = ARGUMENTS.get('enable-olsr', True)

2. Modified the subdirs variable in the top-level SConscript directory
to include 'olsr'

3. Added or uncommented references to olsr4 in:


I get a warning when I run "scons .":

scons: warning: Ignoring missing SConscript
File "/data/XORP/XORP_SVN_1.6/xorp/SConscript", line 50, in <module>

The obj/i686-linux-public17/olsr directory is created although remains
empty. There is no olsr directory under /usr/local/xorp/ either.

What have I missed?

> the more quickly we can prepare a 1.7 release candidate from this
> branch. This would, however, be a maintenance release only, with no new
> features planned at this time.
>    The major changes to the code in SVN, from 1.6, are as follows:
>  * The adoption of a new Python-based build system, SCons.
>  * The docs/ have been moved out of the source code directory itself.
> SCons has also been deployed there.
>  * GNU autotools have been completely eliminated from the tree.
>  * Platform support has also narrowed considerably, as we no longer have
> access to all of the testing resources. We are focusing on Ubuntu,
> Fedora and FreeBSD at this time.
>  * SNMP support has also been dropped, as the work was incomplete.
>    The main development plan is to refactor the code base to use the
> Boost C++ Libraries, and to transition XRL to Facebook/Apache's Thrift
> RPC middleware. This work has already begun.
