Building Chromium or Berkelium in Fedora 18

by on Mar.16, 2013, under General

To get the Chromium aspect of Berkelium built this is roughly the process I used. There’s a lot of manual patching I didn’t put together patches for, but hopefully someone will find this helpful.

This was a bit ridiculous, here’s my somewhat organized notes for anyone that might be trying the same:

General setup:
 - git clone https://github.com/sirikata/berkelium
 - cd berkelium
 - git submodule update --init --recursive
 - sudo yum install subversion pkgconfig python perl ruby gcc-c++ bison \
                        flex gperf nss-devel nspr-devel gtk2-devel glib2-devel \
                        freetype-devel atk-devel pango-devel cairo-devel \
                        fontconfig-devel GConf2-devel dbus-devel alsa-lib-devel \
 - sudo yum install subversion pkgconfig python perl gcc-c++ bison \
        flex gperf nss-devel nspr-devel gtk2-devel glib2-devel freetype-devel \
        atk-devel pango-devel cairo-devel fontconfig-devel GConf2-devel \
        dbus-devel alsa-lib-devel libX11-devel expat-devel bzip2-devel \
        dbus-glib-devel elfutils-libelf-devel libjpeg-devel \
        mesa-libGLU-devel libXScrnSaver-devel \
        libgnome-keyring-devel cups-devel libXtst-devel libXt-devel pam-devel

Stuff I had to figure out:
 - sudo yum install perl-Switch perl-Digest-MD5
 - run Berkelium's util/build-chromium.sh
   - once it finishes downloading stop it. (The compile will fail, but the download should work fine.)
 - patch build/chromium/src/third_party/tcmalloc/chromium/src/base/linuxthreads.cc
    alter line 196 to "static void SignalHandler(int signum, siginfo *si, void *data) {"
      (change siginfo_t to siginfo)
 - patch build/chromium/src/ui/base/l10n/l10n_util.cc
    remove line 8 "#include <glib/gutils.h>"
 - add "#include <unistd.h>" to the following files in build/chromium/src:
    - src/base/test/test_file_util_linux.cc
    - build/chromium/net/tools/flip_server/flip_config.cc
    - net/tools/flip_server/mem_cache.cc
    - net/tools/flip_server/sm_connection.cc
  - cd build/chromium/src/third_party/WebKit && curl "https://bug-92264-attachments.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=154643" | patch -p1
    (make sure it all gets applied, I had to handle one chunk manually)
  - in chrome/browser/net/quoted_printable_unittest.cc
    comment out all that broken SCOPED_TRACE stuff (170, 185, 199)
  - run Berkelium's util/build-chromium.sh again
    - go get dinner while it compiles
