#50060 "make 389-console" should work from outside of source tree
Closed: wontfix 2 years ago by mreynolds. Opened 3 years ago by mreynolds.

Issue Description

We should be able to run "make 389-console" from any build root. This works for other "make" options as described on the wiki. What is nice about this is that you do not pollute the local source tree with the build artifacts:


So for example I create:

 source/389-ds-base  <-- DS source code

Then in BUILD_UI/ I run a configure command that points back to "../389-ds-base/configure", and I run "make install" for example.

But trying "make 389-console" from this location fails with the current implementation as it looks like the paths are hardcoded:

[mareynol@localhost BUILD_UI]$ make 389-console
cd src/cockpit/389-console; make -f node_modules.mk build-cockpit-plugin
/bin/sh: line 0: cd: src/cockpit/389-console: No such file or directory
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/mareynol/source/ds389/BUILD_UI'
make[1]: node_modules.mk: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'node_modules.mk'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/mareynol/source/ds389/BUILD_UI'
make: *** [Makefile:13029: src/cockpit/389-console/cockpit_dist/index.html] Error 2

This should be functional.

I think we also need to revisit all the new "make commands".

make install ---> this should do everything build the server and the console, and install it all (typically run as root)
make 389-console --> this should do all the console building. No need to run "make -f node_modules.mk install", or anything else.
make 389-console-devel-install --> Install cockpit into users's local share cockpit directory.

I think some of this works, but not all of it
