Last Update:



BUILDAIX is a set of scripts that largely automate compiling and packaging software as AIX LPP (installp format).

The single command "buildaix" orchestrates the configure, make, and mkinstallp commands needed to create an installable LPP (or filesets).
(in other words - buildaix does not create RPM packages)

This package (helps) automates the building of standard OpenSource projects as an AIX LLP image/fileset that can be installed/uninstalled using the AIX command 'installp'. The LPP package is placed in the Project tree in ${BASE}/installp/ppc. The template created, as well as log files are stored in ${BASE}/build/aix.
