Re: [Xen-API] Compiling xen-api on Debian Wheezy AMD64

Hi Santosh,


Firstly I’d recommend cloning opam from the OCamlPro repository, rather than xen-org’s fork (it’s several months out of date), and secondly building a tagged release of opam rather than the master branch. Try:


git clone git://github.com/OCamlPro/opam

cd opam

git checkout latest

./configure && make && sudo make install


Then you can initialise opam with the default (OCamlPro) repository, and add xen-org’s repository:


opam init

eval `opam config env`

opam remote add xen-org git://github.com/xen-org/opam-repo-dev


Hope this helps,

I am trying to compile xen-api – specifically rrdump.ml


ocamlc version:

The Objective Caml compiler, version 3.12.1

Standard library directory: /usr/lib/ocaml



git clone git://github.com/xen-org/opam

cd opam; ./configure && make && sudo make install


This succeeded.
