Sugar-build: an alternative to Sugar-JHbuild for Fedora 17




We have seen a complex process involved in building sugar on fedora 14 using JHBuild. Now we have an easy way out to build and run sugar by using sugar-build.

sugar-build it is an alternative of sugar-jhbuild developed by Daniel Narvaez that allow us to get a development version of Sugar easier than with sugar-jhbuild. Also, it works on Fedora 16, 17 and Ubuntu 12.

 Yesterday, I was able to build sugar on my Fedora release 17( Beefy Miracle). So here I am sharing my experience with sugar-build.


These are the steps to build and run sugar on the fly using sugar-build:

Get the source code
You need to get the latest repository of sugar using git

$ git clone git://git.sugarlabs.org/sugar-build/sugar-build.git

Make
Then run the make command to build it( It usually takes 20-30 mins depending on processor and RAM)
$ make

you will see such message once make is complete:



Run
Once the make process is complete you should be able to run your sugar environment
$ make run


and here you go....your sugar is up and running!
You can switch between your fedora environment and sugar by Ctrl+Alt+F1 and Ctrl+Alt+F3

i can't run 'make'
no target specified and no makefile found. Stop.

what is the requirement for make this sugar desktop? it's really a beautiful desktop and i just a newcomer in this whole new world :)

i already installed cmake, qmake, and so on..
if it requires json, i already installed it. so, what am i missing?
