Continuous Integration with Jenkins


The software stack has grown to a size where it make sense to somehow track the state after
each commit. The Jenkins Software allows us to do this. The installation can be found at and all of Osmocom is tracked there. The goal is to
have all projects/repositories of the osmocom umbrella tracked there. We are happy if people
donate CPU time to be used as additional nodes to execute the compile jobs.


We are using Jenkins as it comes from the FreeBSD port system. It runs using the standalone
servlet container (Winstone Servlet Engine) and is behind one (IPv6) or two (IPv4) cherokee
reverse proxies. Currently there are two nodes FreeBSD 8.2/AMD64 and Debian Squeeze/i386 (
running on the FreeBSD kernel, any weirdness might be a broken syscall implementation).

Custom Script

The script was created to clone/update a dependency in the workspace of a build
node. The script will try to git-clone, git-fetch, git-reset --hard the dependency.

if ! test -d $1;
  git clone git://$1 $1

cd $1
git fetch origin
git reset --hard origin/master

FreeBSD 8.2 and Osmocom

Not everything is required to build on GNU/Linux systems, for SIMtrace a fake libusb-1.0.pc
was created to point to the /usr/include,/usr/lib for libusb, all dependencies (fftw, erlang,
autotools...) were installed through the port system


Normal Debian/Squeeze installation, all dependencies installed via the apt/dpkg package
system. The arm-elf-gcc toolchain is installed using the toolchain script of the
