as some may have noticed ive been having a few problems getting the cyanogen source code to download properly. files missing and what not. since i fixed the problems i thought i might share it with everyone.
to download the source code we first need to make a couple of folders in our home folder.
mkdir -p ~/bin
mkdir -p ~/android/system
curl https://dl-ssl.google.com/dl/googlesource/git-repo/repomake a folder in android/system call it prebuilt and unzip the file into it.
Working on getting a local copy of the cyanogenmod source code and followed your link, only to find a 404 error. Leaving this message for others that find this tutorial via Google, I believe the code is now on github. If I get things sorted out, I will try and write up my steps here for others to follow.
OK, I think I have had success. According to my notes, this is what I did (on 64-bit Xubuntu 12.04):
Installed mercurial (and mercurial-common) via Synaptic (provided hg). I am not sure this is necessary now because I don't think hg was used by the repo script. It was from an earlier attempt.
(I already had repo installed from getting AOSP, but you need repo installed, and in your path. For me, ~/bin is in my path)
curl https://dl-ssl.google.com/dl/googlesource/git-repo/repo > ~/bin/repo
chmod u+x ~/bin/repo
cd <source directory head>
repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b ics
repo sync -j 4
This seems to have worked, I now have over 9GB in the directory but I haven't had a chance to start building yet (before I got too engrossed in that, I wanted to make sure I updated this post for anyone else trying to get the source as I was).
I believe you can change the -b argument to gingerbread (or some such) to get a version other than Ice Cream Sandwich.
Hope this helps!
