The goal

The goal is to improve current build bots setup.

The situation before

  • 4 different machines located at different places ;
  • Failures due to old hardware ;
  • No way to manage them except for the admin ;
  • Still no Mac nightlies ;
  • Too much files on sourceforge.net and no cool page.

Solution proposed

  • A setup on one or two machines maximum (PC & Mac) ;
  • Use virtual machines either with docker or VirtualBox ;
  • Allow more users to connect to them.
PC with x86_64 Ubuntu Server
|
|_ i686   Ubuntu Server VM
|_ X86_64 Ubuntu Server VM
|_ i686   Windows (XP/2003 ?) VM

or

Mac Mini with x64 Mac OS X
|
|_ i686   Ubuntu Server VM
|_ X86_64 Ubuntu Server VM
|_ i686   Windows (XP/2003 ?) VM

What to do

  • Investigate VirtualBox and Docker ;
  • Speed/hardware comparison.

GitHub issues

  • #13 Investigate VMs
  • #32 Put the Mac Mini in production for producing nightlies
  • #33 Put additional hard drive in x86_64 server
