[sssd]$ autoreconf -if
[sssd]$ ./configure --enable-nsslibdir=/lib64 --enable-pammoddir=/lib64/security --enable-silent-rules
autoreconf command will create a
configure script. This script
allows you to modify the resulting build with several flags, it also makes sure
that all required dependencies are available. SSSD requires lots of build
dependencies that helps us integrate with the identity and authentication
systems. Your system may not have all necessary dependencies installed. In such
configure script will end up with error that will tell you what is
missing. Re-run the script after you install the dependency.
./configure --help to list all available
Some distributions provide a way to quickly install a package’s build dependencies with a single command. If your distributions supports it, you can install them all at once with:
dnf builddep sssd
apt-get build-dep sssd
There are additional make targets available, such as rpms or prerelease-rpms that you may find useful.
# Build RPM packages
# Build RPM packages with prerelease version tag (date and git hash)
SSSD provide a set of helper aliases and scripts to simplify building of developments versions. These scripts are currently only available for Fedora. You can start using them by sourcing the bashrc_sssd.
[sssd]$ source ./contrib/fedora/bashrc_sssd
If you plan to work on SSSD regularly, you may want to include the script in your ~/.bashrc file:
if [ -f /path/to/sssd-source/contrib/fedora/bashrc_sssd ]; then
Produce a debug build of SSSD and run unit tests (run from git root directory):
[sssd]$ reconfig && chmake
Install fresh build of SSSD into the system (this operation assumes that user has “sudo” privilege). To install SSSD “sssinstall” alias is used:
[sssd]$ sssinstall && echo "Build install successful"
