Building Source Code¶
xcat-deps package is currently owned and maintained by the core development on our internal servers. Use the packages created at: http://xcat.org/download.html#xcat-dep
The xCAT man pages are written in Perl POD files and automatically get built into the xCAT rpms. The content in the .pod files are always the master.
In the past, the man pages were converted into html files and uploaded to SourceForge. In moving to ReadTheDocs we want to also provide the man pages as references in the documentation. To convert the
rst, we are using The Perl module: pod2rst.
The following steps will help configure
pod2rst and be able to generate the changes .rst files to push to GitHub.
Download the following Perl modules:
For each of the above Perl modules:
[as root] Extract and build the Perl module
perl Makefile.PL make make install
[as non-root] Extract and build the Perl module using PREFIX to specify a directory that you have write permission
mkdir ~/perllib perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=~/perllib make make install
Execute the script
create_man_pages.pyto generate the .rst files into
cd xcat-core ./create_man_pages.py
[as non root]
cd xcat-core ./create_man_pages.py --prefix=~/perllib
