Couchbase 4.5 build

I am trying to build couchbase 4.5 from source on sles12.
I am facing a lot of build issue related to v8.
Is there some online documentation on how to build it from source or a doc listing the required dependencies ?

There’s instructions for OpenSUSE at: You may have to adjust them for SLES12.

those instruction seem to out of date of 4.5.
Has anybody tried 4.5 build on any flavour of linux.
I am unable to figure out the version of v8 used as of now for my build.

To be more specific, the …/cbbuild/cbdeps/
script has
I am looking for a corresponding one for 4.5

The instructions are actually “newer” than 4.5 - they build the current master branch :wink:

You want to run repo init with the manifest for the version you want - released/4.5.1.xml perhaps - and then follow the build instructions as in tlm.

If you’re on a platform which Couchbase supports (centos6 centos7 debian7 debian8 suse11.2 ubuntu12.04 ubuntu14.04 windows_msvc) then the external dependancies (including V8) will automatically be downloaded from pre-built binaries (see If you’re building on a different platform, then you’ll have to ensure those 3rd party dependancies are available for CMake to locate them - for V8 see

I’m trying to install Community edition 4.1.1 in openSUSE 42.2 I’m facing the dependency issue
– Reading global third-party dependencies manifest…
– Dependency breakpad (20160926-cb1) not declared for platform suse42.2, skipping…
– Dependency boost (1.62.0-cb1) not declared for platform suse42.2, skipping…

– Dependency v8 (4.8-cb4) not declared for platform suse42.2, skipping…
– Dependency v8 (5.2-cb1) not declared for platform suse42.2, skipping…
– Dependency v8 (4.8-cb5) not declared for platform suse42.2, skipping…
– Global third-party dependencies manifest complete

Could you please suggest ways to add above dependencies in openSUSE?

As per my previous comment, Couchbase only have pre-built binaries for our dependancies for the platforms which we support, and openSUSE 42.2 isn’t one of them.

You’ll need to install the dependancies (including V8) yourself, with whatever method they come packaged on openSUSE, and then you’ll need to ensure that CMake can locate them, as per the CMake file which I highlighted last time.

Alternatively, if you pick an OS which is supported you can just use the pre-compiled 3rd party dependancies.

Hi ,
I was able to build couchbase 4.5 on sles 12 by building v8 on my own.
But, I get alot of test failures which are in the couchdb (couchdb-mapreduce-01-map,02-old-index-cleanup
and many more) bucket.
They all fail due to a segfault. Attaching backtrace. Could you guys share the v8 build arguments you used to build v8, maybe that will help me filter.

EDIT: I am using v8 from
