Need help building IronRuby on Mono 2 + OS X


#1

Hey guys,

I’m running on OS X 10.5.5 with Mono 2.0 (installed via Ports). I ran

rake compile mono=1

I do have pathname2 installed and am using IronRuby trunk revision 180.

I get the following error:
~/Work/ruby/ironruby$ rake compile mono=1 --trace
(in /Users/schonira/Work/ruby/ironruby)
rake aborted!

Hello Sidu,

quick fix to open Rakefile then change ‘rake\xxx’ to ‘rake/xxx’.

however, you will get another error.

That would be a mistake on my part it looks like. If you switch the “”
in the Rakefile imports with “/”, does it work? If so, I’ll make the
change and push it out tonight or tomorrow.

There are some bugs in mono 2.0 that will prevent you from compiling
IronRuby, your best bet is to use the SVN trunk, though I believe 2.2
works
as well. Also, my github linux branch includes various fixes for linux
that
may be necessairy for OSX as well.

as an aside, I noticed that you put 2.0 in the mono variable, the
actually
value of the mono env variable is immaterial, it just needs to be not
nil :slight_smile:

Yes, I install mono by MacPort. going to get mono source to try out.

Thank you,

I’ve tried to build from source on OSX too… with the latest trunk from
mono
but it won’t compile I get the same error.

to make the Rakefile work I had to make 2 minor changes.
In Rakefile I had to change the paths to the other rake files from \ to
/
In rake/misc.rake I had to change line 107 to: commands += (!mono? ?
[‘svn.exe’] : [‘svn’] ) if IronRuby.is_merlin?

Ok now that I know what that error message means i went ahead and forked
ironruby also.
I created a branch called mono and it builds successfully on my mac with
mono.

I basically applied many of the fixes from seo’s patch but for the git
layout and with the sources from 18/12/2008.

I think you also have to set the MERLIN_ROOT environment variable if
you’re
using the git layout.
I use a .bashrc file and there I added the line
export MERLIN_ROOT=’/Users/ivan/src/ironruby/merlin/main’

To get ironruby from my fork and compile it:

git clone git://github.com/casualjim/ironruby.git
cd ironruby
git checkout -b mono
git pull origin mono
cd merlin/main/Languages/Ruby
rake compile mono=1

I tried using Michael’s branch but it didn’t want to work for me.

Thanks Seo, Michael :slight_smile:

What error did you get with my branch? It’s currently building under
Linux
so I’m curious what the differences might be with OSX.

Are you using mono from macports?
Maybe it’s better to build it from trunk

#15

Ok, I switched to building Mono from source instead of through ports -
ran into some trouble building mono itself, but I’ll get that sorted out
and then try building Ivan’s fork and let you guys know how that goes.

And a big thank you to all for helping out so much - it really pushes
someone new to IronRuby like me to actually get things working and not
simply give up :slight_smile:

Thanks again and here’s wishing all of you a very happy new year.
Best,

#16

Just FYI, MERLIN_ROOT will only be needed for a couple more weeks at
most. I’m almost finished with some internal repo changes that will
allow the git integration stuff to work. Once the git stuff works, we
can get rid of all of the SVN stuff, then MERLIN_ROOT won’t be a
trigger.

can get an installer from
