I've played around and was able to build from tips. I ran into one
minor make dependency issue, see attached diff. I suspect the build
process will change dramatically, but for the time being it helps me
study the code if I can build and test.

1) Install Fedora 12 x86_64

2) Generate gpg key pair
$ gpg --gen-key

3) Create ~/.rpmmacros used by rpm --add-sign

4) Install development tools (this could be made more optimal)
# yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
# yum install xen-devel.x86_64
# yum install libX11-devel.x86_64 libXpm-devel.x86_64
libXt-devel.x86_64 libXcomposite-devel.x86_64 libXdamage-devel.x86_64
# yum install xorg-x11-util-macros.noarch xorg-x11-server-devel.x86_64

5) Get source
$ git clone git://qubes-os.org/mainstream/core.git core
$ git clone git://qubes-os.org/mainstream/gui.git gui

6) Make core
$ cd core
$ make rpms

7) Make gui
$ cd gui
$ make rpms

Thanks. I updated the DevelFaq to link to your message:

https://www.qubes-os.org/trac/wiki/DevelFaq

BTW: it is not necessary to prepare the rpm signing keys -- you can just
press enter when asked for the passphrase and skip the signing process
(which is well justified if you build just for testing on your own machine).

joanna.

OT, but worth noting. http://qubes-os.org is down from here.

Yup, my hosting provides confirmed it was an "IP addressing issue" on
their side. Should be resolved now. Interestingly I never run into it
myself.

Thanks for reporting!
