View Full Version : Reproducing a build

June 18th, 2009, 03:26 PM
I am working on reproducing a build of a C project from a few years back. I have the old final build of that project and know the platform on which it was done (ubuntu 7.04; gcc 4.1.2).

When I install 7.04 and add build-essential package (for all build tools), I can successfully build the project but, unfortunately, some object files, libs, and executables do not match identically to these from the old final build.

Having this old build (object files, libs, and executables, source code, makefiles, etc.) but no details on the packages and their versions installed on the build system, does anyone know how would I go about recreating a system that would lead me to reproduce the same build?
