Exact syntax for bdist
I get tripped up on this all the time. What is the exact syntax for creating a 'canonical' binary distribution? (I assume there are scripts on home/release for this, but I want this here where I can find it again.)
What I mean is what extra commands do I put in
in order to create something like
sage-4.6.1-linux-32bit-ubuntu_10.04_lts-i686-Linux.tar? I think that that version number comes for free, and I'm not worried about the file extension, but I don't know about the rest and want to do it right.
I THINK it is
./sage -bdist OSX-32bit-10.4-i386-Darwin
but I'm just not sure, and don't want to waste time making a mistake.
Edit: I see the following in sage-bdist
if [ $# -ne 2 ]; then echo "Usage: $0 <SAGE_VERSION> <SAGE_ROOT>" exit 1 fi
but the following in sage-sage
if [ "$1" = '-bdist' -o "$1" = "--bdist" ]; then if [ $# -ne 2 ]; then echo >&2 "** MISSING VERSION NUMBER! **" exit 1 fi sage-bdist $2 "$SAGE_ROOT" exit $? fi
is a little annoying - it's not clear whether you can even get to the 'usage' place in sage-bdist.
(Hint is that I think the answer to my question is in the rest of sage-bdist, but I'm too lazy to figure it out exactly now.)
