Topic: Good build scripts? and scripts for copying built snapshots?

The content of this topic has been archived on 21 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Wiki is a bit vague about the exact commands to rebuild new versions, so I thought to share my current build script and ask about better script versions.

The script below updates svn source, updates feeds, then runs 'defconfig' and 'menuconfig', and finally builds the system.
I am running this script both for Backfire and Trunk branches.
Any comments for it?

#!/usr/bin/env sh
#
# update-and-make  -   Update source code and make the build
echo "Update SVN source..."
svn up
svn info >bin/ar71xx/svninfo.txt
echo "...update feeds..."
./scripts/feeds update -a
echo "...install feeds..."
./scripts/feeds install -a
echo "...make defconfig..."
make defconfig
echo "...make menuconfig..."
make menuconfig
echo "...make world..."
make -j 3 V=99 2>&1 | tee build.log | grep -i error

Additionally, I include my current script for mounting a shared directory in VirtualBox in order to copy the built binary and config files from Ubuntu guest system used for building to the Windows 7 host system. (Similar script can naturally be used also just for copying snaphot files to another location in the system.)

The script mounts the shared folder and then copies both my Backfire and Trunk builds along the .config files, svn diffs and md5 checksums marking all files with clear timestamps (SVN revision and copying date/time).

echo Mount shared folder
Mountpoint=/media/windows-share
sudo mount -t vboxsf WNDR3700 $Mountpoint

echo -n Copy Backfire...
BSvnTime=r`svn info /Openwrt/backfire | grep Revision |cut -d " " -f 2`-`date +%F-%H%M`
BFile=$Mountpoint/WNDR3700-backfire-$BSvnTime
svn diff /Openwrt/backfire > $BFile-svn.diff
svn diff /Openwrt/backfire/feeds/packages > $BFile-packages.diff
grep squashfs-sysupgrade /Openwrt/backfire/bin/ar71xx/md5sums > $BFile-md5.txt
cp /Openwrt/backfire/bin/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-wndr3700-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin $BFile-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
cp /Openwrt/backfire/.config $BFile.config
echo done.

sleep 3

echo -n Copy Trunk...
TSvnTime=r`svn info /Openwrt/trunk | grep Revision |cut -d " " -f 2`-`date +%F-%H%M`
TFile=$Mountpoint/WNDR3700-trunk-$TSvnTime
svn diff /Openwrt/trunk > $TFile-svn.diff
svn diff /Openwrt/trunk/feeds/packages > $TFile-packages.diff
grep squashfs-sysupgrade /Openwrt/trunk/bin/ar71xx/md5sums > $TFile-md5.txt
cp /Openwrt/trunk/bin/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wndr3700-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin $TFile-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
cp /Openwrt/trunk/.config $TFile.config
echo done.

The result is:

To pre-download source code 10 connections at time before make world:

make -j 10 download

Apply custom patches.
ar71xx has a good example in base-files, there are so many defconfig and uci-defaults scripts I don't need wasting flash space, but this is not a bug. I like to get rid of them, moreover if files folder is populated with custom config files:

# opkg files base-files

Also there are patches not approved but I like to test, so a folder that survive a dist clean with those patches executes before a make world. Orion for example has many old good tickets waiting approval.
Sooner or later you will need that too wink

EDIT: Typo. opkg files base-files output is sorted

Here's the scripts that I use for checkout, update and build.  This example is for a trunk build for the TL-WR1043ND (ar71xx).

checkout.sh

#!/bin/sh

# checkout source
svn checkout svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk .

# create symbolic link to download directory
ln -s ~/openwrt/download/trunk dl

# update/install feeds
scripts/feeds update packages luci
scripts/feeds install -a -p luci
scripts/feeds install iperf
scripts/feeds install ntpd ntp-utils
scripts/feeds install tcpdump tcpdump-mini
scripts/feeds install openssh-server vsftpd
scripts/feeds install asterisk16
scripts/feeds install

update.sh

#!/bin/sh

# update source
svn update .

# create symbolic link to download directory
if [ ! -d dl ]; then
        ln -s ~/openwrt/download/trunk dl
fi

# update/install feeds
scripts/feeds update packages luci
scripts/feeds install -a -p luci
scripts/feeds install iperf
scripts/feeds install ntpd ntp-utils
scripts/feeds install tcpdump tcpdump-mini
scripts/feeds install openssh-server vsftpd
scripts/feeds install asterisk16
scripts/feeds install

Note: It is assumed that you run "make menuconfig" before running "build.sh".

build.sh

#!/bin/sh

# get svn revision
revision_line=$(svn info | grep Revision)
revision=$(echo $revision_line |  sed 's/Revision: //')

# save build configuration
cp -vu --backup=numbered .config tl-wr1043nd-r$(echo $revision).config

# save svn info
svn info . > svninfo.txt
svn info feeds/packages >> svninfo.txt
svn info feeds/luci >> svninfo.txt

# make
start=$(date +%s)
make V=99
end=$(date +%s)
minutes=$(echo "scale=2; $((end - start))/60.0" | bc)
hours=$(echo "scale=2; $((end - start))/3600.0" | bc)
echo "Build time: $minutes minutes, $hours hours."

# copy binary to ftp directory
cp -vu --backup=numbered bin/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr1043nd-v1-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin \
   /srv/ftp/openwrt-ar71xx-tl-wr1043nd-v1-r$(echo $revision)-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

I'm not tidy as you, but here is the script I run for ImageBuilder with some bits borrowed from your script.
The script get a revision as user input, delete old, decompress new, update http server, apply a patch to compile only the routers I have ignoring the rest.
There are commented out some bits left from first/previous runs.

Nilfred you can avoid the sed garbage by writing it as "sed -i -e ..." instead of "sed -ie".

Half a year later, and a bit more automation...

My build script includes now an optional "make dirclean" (defaulting to not doing it after 15 sec timeout), creates a version info / timestamp file to be included in the built firmware (as /etc/Compiled_by.txt), and removes unnecessary binary files after the compilation. I am currently building Luci from local source code, so the script also updates it.

#!/bin/bash
#
# update-and-make  -   Update source code and make the build
read -p "Make dirclean first? (y/n) " -n 1 -t 15 dirc
echo " "
case $dirc in
    y|Y)  echo "...make dirclean..."; make dirclean ;;
    *)  echo "...no clean operation...";;
esac

echo "...update SVN source..."
svn up
echo "...update Luci source..."
svn up /Openwrt/luci/
echo "...update feeds..."
./scripts/feeds update -a
echo "...install feeds..."
./scripts/feeds install -a

echo "...make defconfig..."
make defconfig
echo "...make menuconfig..."
make menuconfig

echo "...create version info..."
echo "Compiled by Hannu Nyman" > files/etc/Compiled_by.txt
echo `date "+%F %H:%M"` >> files/etc/Compiled_by.txt
echo -n Openwrt r`svn info | grep Revision |cut -d " " -f 2` >> files/etc/Compiled_by.txt
echo " / Luci r"`svn info /Openwrt/luci/ | grep Revision |cut -d " " -f 2` >> files/etc/Compiled_by.txt

echo "...make world..."
make -j 3 V=99 2>&1 | tee build.log | grep -i -E "error|Entering dir"
echo "...remove unnecessary files..."
rm -f bin/ar71xx/*jffs* bin/ar71xx/*root* bin/ar71xx/*vmlinux* bin/ar71xx/*uImage* bin/ar71xx/*-NA.img

And the file copy script first mounts the Virtualbox shared directory (if it is not already mounted), then creates full svn diffs for the main source, Luci and packages, and then copies the diffs, config, md5sums and the binaries. All filenames include timestamps for making it easy to identify versions.  The script does the copy operation for both Backfire and Trunk versions.

... Nothing you learned from this tread.

Take dl away from distclean reach (Is dirclean a typo?)

ln -sf ../../dl
make download

Select target before defconfig:

echo CONFIG_TARGET_ar71xx=y > .config
make defconfig

Patch out unnecessary profiles if you need only 3700 stuff (see my post)
And so on...

Yeah, I noticed your suggestions already last time, but haven't bothered to tweak it so much. You have valid points there (e.g. regarding the unnecessary profiles), I admit that.

Dirclean is not a typo. I see no reason to use 'make distclean', as 'make dirclean' cleans almost as much, but doesn't e.g. destroy .config and dl directory.
