This page is for tracking progress on the packaging Eucalyptus 3.x in Fedora. We've been tracking this for three releases now, and the dependency packaging is mostly complete, except for Google Web Toolkit, which we can omit for now. Therefore, it's more useful for the top of this page to summarize the _other_ changes needed to make Eucalyptus build and run on Fedora 18.

Remaining tasks

Polish systemd units for eucalyptus services

There are three init scripts in eucalyptus:

  • eucalyptus-cloud - starts a java service, which may be a Cloud Controller, Walrus, or Storage Controller
  • eucalyptus-cc - starts a Cluster Controller (CC), which is a custom httpd instance with wso2-axis2 configured
  • eucalyptus-nc - starts a Node Controller (NC), which is a custom httpd instance with wso2-axis2 configured

In Fedora 18, we provide systemd units which simple execute the old init scripts, which have been moved to /usr/libexec/eucalyptus. Ideally, the old init scripts should go away completely.

Create SELinux contexts/policies

Eucalyptus must run in permissive mode in Fedora 18. We need to work on policy that will allow it to run in enforcing mode.

Make Axis2/Java 1.6 work for code generation

The C code generated by Axis2/Java 1.6.0 does not work with Eucalyptus's currently defined handlers. Currently, one must use an [Axis2/Java 1.4 package] to build a tarball of generated code for inclusion in the eucalyptus package.

Fix the reporting module

There is a build issue in the reporting module due to the use of Guava 9 in the upstream Eucalyptus build. For now, the module has been disabled.

Enable the admin console

The admin console is based on GWT, which is not yet in Fedora. It may not be worth the time to build it, though, as Eucalyptus intends to phase out the GWT-based UI.

Packaging Progress

These are the packages still in progress which are necessary for the Eucalyptus build:

Optional dependencies and sub-dependencies

ActiveMQ and JasperReports are only necessary for reporting, which, while it's a nice new feature of Eucalyptus 3, can easily be omitted from the build.
