GRAMPS 3.2.0 has been successfully installed and tested on Solaris 11 Express (SPARC platform) by building GRAMPS from source. ( Building Gramps on Solaris 11 Express & [1], By Matt Keenan

GRAMPS 3.0.1 has been successfully installed and tested on both the latest releases of Solaris 10 (SPARC platform) and OpenSolaris 2008.05 (X86 platform) by building GRAMPS from source.

Installing Dependencies

Even with the latest releases of Solaris/OpenSolaris a number of missing dependencies need to be resolved before you can install GRAMPS, namely Berkeley DB, Python BSDDB Interface and Python ReportLab.

You will need to install these dependencies before you can move forward and install GRAMPS.

Berkeley DB

  • Download the BSDDB core from www.oracle.com. For the GRAMPS 3.0.1 installation I've used Berkeley DB 4.5.20 (although 4.6/4.7 is available I found a number of db corruptions while using these later releases so I stuck with the trusted 4.5x version).
  • Unpack, build and install
% gtar zxfB db-4.5.20.tar.gz
% cd db-4.5.20/build_unix
% ../dist/configure --prefix=/usr
% gmake

% su
# gmake install

Note: Using the --prefix=/usr on the configure command-line is a must under Solaris, without installing the Berkeley DB in this location Python BSDDB interface fails to install.

Python BSDDB Interface

% gtar zxfB bsddb3-4.5.0.tar.gz
% cd bsddb3-4.5.0
% python setup.py build
Found Berkeley DB 4.5 installation.
  include files in /usr/include
  library files in /usr/lib
  library name is libdb-4.5
  running build
  running build_py
  running build_ext

% su
# python setup.py install

Note: You must download and build a version of the Python BSDDB Interface which supports the version of Berkeley DB installed on your system.

Python ReportLab (do not need on 3.2 and later)

  • Download Report 2.1 (latest version at the time of writing), from www.reportlab.org/ftp
  • Unpack, build and install
% gtar zxfB ReportLab_2_1.tgz
% cd reportlab_2_1/reportlab
% python setup.py build

% su
# python setup.py install

Installing GRAMPS

Download & Unpack

  • Download GRAMPS 3.0.1 (latest version at time of writing) from the GRAMPS sourceforge.net page.
  • Unpack
% gtar zxvf gramps-3.0.1.tar.gz
% cd gramps-3.0.1

Prebuild Changes

A small number of changes are needed prior to compiling and installing GRAMPS 3.0.1 on the Solaris platform

configure

Although the GRAMPS 3.0.1 package requires a python version of 2.5 or later. The Solaris build of python 2.4 works well with GRAMPS 3.0.1 and no issues have been noticed. Note: This change negates the need install a later release of python ;-)

gramps.sh.in

Unlike other UNIX/Linux versions the default /bin/sh under Solaris is the older bourne shell. In order to allow the script to work we need to modify the first line of this file to read ksh (or bash if you prefer):

#!/bin/ksh

Configure GRAMPS

To configure GRAMPS all you need to do is run the configure script:

./configure

Othe roptions to configure that are useful include telling the script to setup GRAMPS to install in a directory of your choosing instead of the default (/usr/local):

./configure --prefix=/your/dest/dir

Compile GRAMPS

To compile GRAMPS simple issue make.

make

Testing the Build

To test the GRAMPS build, simply run:

python ./src/gramps.py

Run Install

Finally, type make to install into your desired location

make install
