Although EnGarde Secure Linux does not include a development environment “out of the box,” all of the tools to set one up are available via the Guardian Digital Secure Network. The purpose of this document is to provide you, the software developer, with the instructions to set up a package building environment of your own. After building the environment, we will walk you through building a package for the popular object oriented programming language, Ruby.
Setting Up Your Environment
What you’ll need:
* A machine to do your development on. It’s not recommended to do this on a production machine. This machine should be somewhat powerful, or you should have a lot of patience. This machine should have the latest version of EnGarde Secure Linux Community installed on it.
* Hints on how to build RPM’s. There are a lot of HOWTO’s out there.
