problems building elementary OS isis

Asked by Seppe Stas on 2013-09-10

When trying to build elementary OS isis (using the default congrego settings) I encountered the following problems:

Missing dependencies! Please install the following packages:
 syslinux-themes-elementary-isis

I searched for the package in the default and daily PPA's of both eOS and Ubuntu, as well as a general internet search, but couldn't find anything useful.

I changed the 'syslinux-themes-elementary-isis' entry in the dependency list of congrego.sh to 'syslinux-themes-elementary'.
Now the previous error is gone.

When trying to build again I get the following error (among others):
Connecting to releases.ubuntu.com (releases.ubuntu.com)|91.189.92.157|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
2013-09-10 16:31:13 ERROR 404: Not Found.

My guess is the location of the Ubuntu release changed?

I also got the following errors (not obviously caused by the previous error):
P: Executing auto/config script.
./auto/config: 54: [: i386: unexpected operator
P: Updating config tree
cp: target `config/hooks/' is not a directory
[2013-09-10 16:31:14] lb_build
P: Executing auto/build script.
./auto/build: 6: .: Can't open /usr/lib/live/build.sh
P: Executing auto/config script.
./auto/config: 54: [: amd64: unexpected operator
P: Updating config tree
cp: target `config/hooks/' is not a directory
[2013-09-10 16:31:14] lb_build
P: Executing auto/build script.
./auto/build: 6: .: Can't open /usr/lib/live/build.sh
md5sum: binary.hybrid.iso: No such file or directory

I later tried to build for amd64 only.
congero.conf used:
# base codename
BASECODENAME="saucy"

# base version
BASEVERSION="13.10"

# distribution codename
CODENAME="isis"

# distribution version
VERSION="0.3"

# wether to lower the priority of the build process or not
LOW_PRIORITY="no"

The script now throws the same errors (but only the ones for amd64), and asks me for a sourceforge login.
Is there a way to build eOS using a buildscript without pushing it to soureforge?

Some info on my system:
uname:
Linux seppe-PC 3.2.0-53-generic #81-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 22 21:01:03 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

syslinux-themes-elementary-isis is in this
package<https://code.launchpad.net/~elementary-os/+recipe/syslinux-themes-elementary-daily>

It can't find the Saucy Ubuntu iso because it's unreleased, you have to
download one yourself and put it at tmp/amd64/ubuntu.iso or
tmp/i386/ubuntu.iso in the congrego folder

ctrl+c when it gets to the sourceforge part, that's at the very end of the
process

I'm having trouble with congrego too. At first, I got this error:

./auto/build: 6: .: Can't open /usr/lib/live/build.sh
md5sum: binary.hybrid.iso: No such file or directory

Sym-linking

/usr/share/live/build/scripts/build.sh
 to
/usr/lib/live/build.sh

gets the script to start, and it downloads all packages, but then it fails with:

[2013-10-18 13:05:05] lb_bootstrap_cache save
P: Begin caching bootstrap stage...
P: Begin unmounting filesystems...
./auto/build: 42: ./auto/build: cannot create config/hooks/999-undivert-update-initramfs.chroot: Directory nonexistent

This is on my VPS, running 12.04, so I'll give it a try later on my Luna machine.

Can you help with this problem?
