Is OpenNebula buildable from the github source code?
I have decided to build the OpenNebula packages myself (I have been using pre-built CentOS 7 packages before). I tried to start from the opennebula-5.4.1-1.src.rpm from the inside of the opennebula-5.4.1.tar.gz CentOS tarball from www.opennebula.org/software. It apparently contains a copy of the xmlrpc-c source code, even though it depends on the xmlrpc-c and xmlrpc-c-devel system packages. Which one gets used? The %build part seems to unpack and compile the local copy.
Nevertheless, rpmbuild --rebuild opennebula-5.4.1-1.src.rpm produces working packages of OpenNebula. Good. Let’s compare the source code to the distributed sources:
I cloned the OpenNebula Git repository, and created a new opennebula-5.4.1.tar.gz sources from it using
ONEVERS=5.4.1 ; git archive --format tar.gz --prefix=opennebula-$ONEVERS/ release-$ONEVERS -o opennebula-$ONEVERS.tar.gz
When I copy this tarball to ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES and try to build the CentOS 7 packages using rpmbuild -ba centos7.spec, it compiles, and ONe apparently works with the exception of Sunstone: the Sunstone login screen shows a rotating spinner between the “Keep me logged in” text and the “Login” button, and after entering username and password, it responds with the following page:
Sinatra doesn’t know this ditty. Try this: post '/' do "Hello World" end
Comparing the opennebula-5.4.1.tar.gz tarball from the src.rpm to the one generated from git-archive, the later has lots of missing files: the whole src/sunstone/public/bower_components subtree, src/sunstone/public/css/app.css, src/sunstone/public/css/app.min.css, and the src/sunstone/public/dist/ directory.
So my question is - where are the official source tarballs, and why there are different to what I get via git-archive?
