[Dev] Building tizen common 3.0 for x86

Hi Maciej,

Thanks for the information. As you said we merged the common and base manifest files to get the project manifest file.

Before starting the source code download, wanted clarification on certain points :

1)For doing a repo init shall we use the same url i.e.

repo init -u https://<Username>:<HTTPS_Password>@review.tizen.org/gerrit/p/scm/manifest -b tizen -m common.xml

2) if yes, then our understanding is you want us to replace the 'project.xml'  file mentioned in the 'common.xml' file with the merged 'project.xml' file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<include name="_remote.xml" />
<default revision="accepted/tizen_common"
                                      sync-j="4" />
  <include name="common/metadata.xml" />
  <include name="common/prebuilt.xml" />
  <include name="common/projects.xml" /> ****replace this file*****

3)the _remote.xml remains same,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
     <remote name="tizen-gerrit"

4)Then do a repo sync to get the updated code base.

5)After the entire source code gets syncd, we will use " http://download.tizen.org/snapshots/tizen/base/latest/repos/x86_64/packages/x86_64/"
url as the remote repo url in .gbs.config file to successfully get the source code built(resolving dependencies).

Please comment on whether our understanding is right or do we have to make further changes in common.xml & _remote.xml.

We have attached the following files for your reference :
3)merged 'project.xml' after running the shell command given by you.

These xml files are provided by scm/manifest repository, which is unfortunately outdated. The build fails, because of few reasons:
1. there are new repositories, which were not added to scm/manifest 2. there is new RPM repository (Tizen Base), which is used by all profiles - there is no information about Tizen Base packages in other profiles 3. some packages were moved (so git paths in manifests are invalid)

Fortunately I think it should be possible to workaround this issue. You will find similar manifests published in every snapshot on every profile. I've attached little script which you can use to merge both Base and Common manifests. Usage:
./manifest-merge.sh base.xml common.xml common > projects.xml

Manifest for Base is here: 

for Common:

There are 2 problems we are aware of:
- mdnsresponer git path was changed, this change will be reflected in next snapshot, so please check if path is platform/upstream/mdnsresponder
- model-config-xu3 git path was also changed - please delete this line.
