Re: Hosting contrib RPMs

*sigh* I'm not adept at creating SRPMs, only RPMs when I have help with the SPEC files. Dag ignored my last attempt to offer them. Oh well, I still have them to share. I suppose I can list them here, no? I can email them, or upload them wherever anyone wants. For CentOS 4.4 x86-64 (using KDE 3.5.5 w...

Re: Using checkinstall on CentOS

Well, yes, but that link gives me 1.5.8-5, and it requires 1.5.9. As it is, I used the same trick suggested for Bibletime by using the SPEC file from 1.5.8 and applying it to the source for 1.5.9, changing only the release number. Worked like a charm. At this point, Bibletime 1.6.1 is running just f...

Re: Using checkinstall on CentOS

You know, it's crazy I can find an FC4 RPM for Sword 1.5.9 on i386, but not for x86-64, nor even a source RPM. Where do they hide those things?

Thanks. I'll try these out and get back to the list tomorrow my time.

Using checkinstall on CentOS

Does anyone know much about the peculiarities of checkinstall on CentOS? I'm trying to create an RPM from a Bibletime build (x86-64, using KDE-RedHat update to 3.5.5). It keeps giving me an error near the end, not finding some files which are very much there. In fact, I ran the same failed commands ...

Hosting contrib RPMs

Does anyone know a site accepting contributed RPMs for x86-64? Sometimes I build from source because no one else has bothered, or used different options. I can't host them, but would like to share them. For example, I typically rebuild freetype2 to suit me, and have found source RPMs to build Vim 7....

Sound fuzzy

CentOS 4.4 x86-64, running on a K8 board with Via chips (via82xx). Under bundled KDE, sound was quite nice. Under Redhat-KDE update to 3.5.4, sound was even better. Under Gnome, sound is fuzzy with lots of crackling and volume variations. Is anyone else getting something similar? Also, I have no ide...

Drive LED Constantly Flashing

Prior to the 4.4 update, my x86-64 system ran quite well with only intermittent flashing of the drive LED. Now, for some reason it's nearly constant. I have already lengthened the "commit" time to 10 minutes in fstab, but it didn't affect the frequency. Where should I look for the cause in the syste...

Re: FireFox java pluggin AMD64

Duly noted. However, I am ignorant of the method for getting the proper collection of dependenices for 32-bit FF and friends. Has anyone made list, or is there some manipulation possible with yum? Disregard; I solved it manually: libgnome-2.8.0-2.i386.rpm libglade2-2.4.0-5.i386.rpm libgnomecanvas-2....

Re: OpenOffice 2.0 install weirdness

Is there a compelling reason you prefer RPMs over the tar-ball? I've always found it worked much better to install using the script with the single tar package. You can set the install path option before running the script. OTOH, I was wondering if yum was a better way to remove something with multi...

Re: How can i change by default GUI?

I'll bite mr_manny: I hated flux. I prefer IceWM or XFce 3.x. But then, I still think WP8 for Linux was the best ever word processor. 8-)
