  • Boot the current build of the NST ISO image.
  • Use the make manifest HOST=IP to generate the current manifest.
  • You may need to edit the current release file: "include/manifest/current.xml" prior to copying it for misbehaved characters. Hopefully the xmllint and grep searches for the % and "\" characters will detect any issues. IMPORTANT: You will need to remove/replace the "%" characters by hand (if any are found). The back slashes can be handled by sed (shown below).
  • Create the file include/manifest/release-RELEASE-SVNID.xml where RELEASE is the NST release (like: 24) and SVNID is one more than the current revision number reported by Subversion (since our next commit will cause this number to bump up by 1). For example, if the revision number reported is 7972, then use 7973 as the SVNID.
  • You only need to update the manifest on one machine (if you are building multiple architectures, you'll need to update).
  • You will likely need to update the html/welcome.html page with the next SVN revision number. Also check kernel versions, dates and the manifest link.
  • Probe install the nstweb package and verify that the welcome page and manifest look OK (ie the kernel and top level info).
  • Commit the updated manifest file.

Here is an example of what these steps might look like:

[nst@nst24-repo repo]$ make manifest HOST=nst-probe

... Output and re-generation of:
    include/manifest/current.xml ...

[nst@nst24-repo repo]$ xmllint include/manifest/current.xml > /dev/null
[nst@nst24-repo repo]$ grep '%' include/manifest/current.xml
[nst@nst24-repo repo]$ grep '\\' include/manifest/current.xml 
[nst@nst24-repo repo]$ sed -i -e 's,\\,,g' -e 's,%2B,+,' -e 's,%{git,{git,' include/manifest/current.xml # Example of removing back-slashes and changing %2B to +
[nst@nst24-repo repo]$ xmllint include/manifest/current.xml > /dev/null
