Assume $CGSI_GSOAP_LOCATION points to where we want the CGSI_gSOAP libraries to be placed.
LFC need CGSI_gSOAP so we will first have to make that one. Download the latest source rpm found in NorduGrid FTP Area and convert it to a tar-ball and unpack the tar-ball:
wget ftp://ftp.nordugrid.org/software/CGSI_gSOAP/releases/latest/src/CGSI_gSOAP*.src.rpm alien --to-tgz CGSI_gSOAP-$VERSION.src.rpm tar -xvzf CGSI_gSOAP-$VERSION.tgz
The result is probably another tar-ball and possibly some patches. Untar the tar-ball and if needed apply the patches:
tar -xvzf CGSI_gSOAP-$VERSION.tar.gz cd CGSI_gSOAP-$VERSION for i in ../CGSI_gSOAP*.patch; do patch -p1 < $i; done;
The build system is slightly awkward and non-standard:
Note: on 6.06 you must also specify --with-gsoap-location=$GSOAP_LOCATION
mkdir build cd build ../configure --with-globus-prefix=$GLOBUS_LOCATION --with-voms-location=$VOMS_LOCATION cd src make make install PREFIX=$CGSI_GSOAP_LOCATION
Now we have the prerequisites finished for building LFC. Again we start with the same procedure as for CGSI_gSOAP. Download the latest source RPM from NorduGrid FTP Area and convert it to a tar-ball, unpack, untar and apply patches:
wget ftp://ftp.nordugrid.org/software/LFC/releases/latest/src/LFC*.src.rpm alien --to-tgz LFC-VERSION...src.rpm tar -xvzf LFC-VERSION.tgz tar -xvzf LFC-VERSION.tar.gz cd LFC-VERSION for i in ../LFC-*.patch; do patch -p1 < $i ; done;
If you found the build system for CGSI strange, be prepared for something even stranger. LFC uses to by now obsolete imake system. Start by downloading this patch. The following assume we are still in the directory from the last sequence of commands
export VOMSL=$VOMS_LOCATION export GLOBUSL=$GLOBUS_LOCATION export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$GLOBUS_LOCATION/lib patch -p1 < LFC-ubuntu.patch cp Makefile.ini Makefile make make install
