Estimated disk space required: 31 MB (additional 250 MB for the tests and 2 MB for docs generation)
Estimated build time: 0.1 SBU (additional 8.8 SBU for tests)
Bazaar-2.5.1, CVS-1.11.23, git-2.1.0, GnuPG-2.0.26 (gpg2 with Python bindings), Subversion-1.8.10 (with Python bindings), Docutils (required to build the documentation), pyflakes, pygments, and pyOpenSSL
Build Mercurial by issuing the following command:
To build the documentation (requires Docutils), issue:
Running the test suite is optional. Failure of test-patchbomb is
expected with Python-2.7.x (x >
7). To test the results in the subdiretory
tests/tmp, skipping the failing test, issue:
cat > tests/blacklists/test-failed << "EOF"
# Failure with Python-2.7.8 test-patchbomb.tEOF rm -rf tests/tmp && TESTFLAGS="--tmpdir tmp --blacklist blacklists/test-failed" \ make check
Tests may be run in parallel, just add “-j$(getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN)” to TESTFLAGS.
Install Mercurial by running the
following command (as
make PREFIX=/usr install-bin
If you built the documentation, install it by running the following
make PREFIX=/usr install-doc
After installed, two very quick and simple tests should run correctly. First one needs some configuration:
cat >> ~/.hgrc << "EOF"
[ui] username = <user_name> <your@mail>EOF
where you must replace <user_name> and <your@mail> (mail is optional and can be omitted). With the user identity defined, run hg debuginstall and several lines will be displayed, the last one reading "no problems detected". Another quick and simple test is just hg, which should output basic commands that can be used with hg.
If you have installed the Certificate Authority
Certificates and you want Mercurial to use them, as the
install -v -d -m755 /etc/mercurial && cat > /etc/mercurial/hgrc << "EOF"
[web] cacerts = /etc/ssl/ca-bundle.crtEOF
