Description (last modified by daira)

This is one of a collection of tickets about binary eggs that need to be built for specific platforms.

See src/allmydata/_auto_deps.py for Tahoe-LAFS trunk's current dependencies, and https://tahoe-lafs.org/source/tahoe-lafs/deps/tahoe-dep-eggs/README.html for the eggs that have been built and uploaded.

64-bit Windows is currently missing Twisted >= 11.0 and pycrypto >= 2.4.1 eggs for Python 2.6. On the other hand, we recommend using Python 2.7.x on Windows.

A pyOpenSSL 0.13 egg is a particular priority because of #2005.

  • Milestone changed from soon to 1.11.0

comment:6 Changed at 2014-10-08T12:13:10Z by daira

We need a pyOpenSSL 0.13.1 egg for 64-bit Windows before the 1.11 release.

We also need a Twisted 12.2.0 egg, because the existing 12.3.0 egg is incompatible with our current _auto_deps.py. (12.3.0 depends on pywin32; see #2028.)

The "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express with SP1" compiler needed to compile extension modules for Python 2.7, is available from https://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=7729279 (linked from this Stack Overflow answer). More recent versions are not compatible.

After installing this, run Microsoft Update.

Current notes on how to build OpenSSL (edit: these are obsolete, see docs/build/build-pyOpenSSL.rst instead):

  • Install 64-bit Windows 7. (I used Windows 7 Ultimate in a VirtualBox? under Linux.)
  • Fix security settings, download Chrome, apply Windows updates.
  • Install Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2008 SP1.
  • Apply Microsoft updates. (Requires setting the update site to use compatibility mode in IE.)
  • add C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\bin\amd64 to the PATH, *after* all entries starting C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0 (*yes I know*).
  • run these commands:
    perl Configure VC-WIN64A --prefix=C:\Build-OpenSSL-VC-64
    edit ms\nt.mak and make this change:
    MKLIB=lib /machine:x64 /nologo
    nmake -f ms\nt.mak

  • Keywords openitp-packaging removed

This is no longer part of the openitp grant, but we still need eggs to enable the 'quickstart' instructions to work on windows.

For this platform, we still need:

  • Twisted 12.1.0 (done)
  • pyOpenSSL 0.13.1 with OpenSSL 1.0.1m (done)

Works for me, in a clean checkout, with no compilation.

The instructions for building OpenSSL and pyOpenSSL are at docs/build/build-pyOpenSSL.rst.

  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

I now need to build a Twisted >= 13.0.0 (probably 15.1.0) egg, in order for the #2416 branch to work on 64-bit Windows systems without a compiler.
