Re: [cbi-dev] installing non-general-purpose tools on JIPP

Hi Jonah,

First: thanks for asking.

You can install tools in ~/biuldtools, for example. If you think they could be used for others, do feel free to install them to /shared/common, as it is writable by all (if I remember correctly).

Hope this helps,

Hi folks,

Is there a standard way to install tools on JIPPs? For example, CDT has some new features that require Meson, Ninja and Python3. I can see Python3 is already in /shared/common/python/python-3.6.1. But Meson and Ninja may not be general purpose (yet) so I imagine CDT should take responsibility for them.

Where should I install them? I expect to use a Jenkins job to do the install.

On a related note, I can see that CDT has in the past managed the many versions of GDB we need by placing them inÂ/shared/common/gdb/gdb-all, seeÂhttps://ci.eclipse.org/cdt/view/Releng/job/debug_manual_gdb_download/Â
Is this ok?Â
