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


Thanks, John -- your instructions look right to me.

Santosh: were the broken instructions on the wiki? If so, please update them once you get it working!

Hi Santosh,


Firstly Iâd recommend cloning opam from the OCamlPro repository, rather than xen-orgâs fork (itâs several months out of date), and secondly building a tagged release of opam rather than the master branch.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-orgâs 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 â 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.
