Compiling ScummVM using Docker

The ScummVM buildbot uses Docker for building the toolchains. As such, this makes it possible for the individual toolchains to be used for local builds, avoiding the need to install the toolchain and required libraries manually.

The following toolchain images are available:

Name Target platform Required configure flags Packaging command Notes
toolchains/amigaos4 AmigaOS 4 --host=ppc-amigaos --enable-plugins --default-dynamic --enable-detection-dynamic make amigaosdist
toolchains/android Android for ARMv7, AArch64, x86 and x86_64 --host=android-arm-v7a --enable-debug

For more details on how to build ScummVM for a specific platform, see the relevant page from Compiling ScummVM.

Installing the needed packages

Debian-based distributions

The following should install all the necessary packages:

apt-get install git

Getting the source

  • Open a Terminal and type:
git clone

Using the docker images

To fetch a toolchain image from the Docker Hub, issue the following command from the ScummVM source directory:

./devtools/ <toolchain>

where <toolchain> is the name of the toolchain you want to use. This will fetch the requested toolchain from the Docker Hub if it isn't installed, mount the scummvm folder in the Docker image and launch a shell that can be used to build ScummVM for the relevant platform. Alternatively, you can use the following command to fetch updates for an already installed toolchain before launching the shell:

./devtools/ --update <toolchain>

Once in the Docker image, the following commands should be issued in order to build ScummVM:

./configure <configure-flags>
make -j$(nproc)

where <configure-flags> is the list of required configure flags specified in the table at the top of the page. This should be followed by the packaging command if one is specified.

Once done, the exit command can be used to leave the Docker image.
