Hosting contrib RPMs

Post by ehurst » 2006/11/28 13:25:10

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 7.0 (which I use with Cream).

According to: http://www.centos.org/modules/smartfaq/faq.php?faqid=12

But real life shows; http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/4.4/contrib/SRPMS/

I think Dag Wieers might be more supportive: http://dag.wieers.com/personal/

*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 where applicable):

bibletime-1.6.1-1.x86_64.rpm
bibletime-debuginfo-1.6.1-1.x86_64.rpm

clucene-debuginfo-0.9.15-2.x86_64.rpm
clucene-devel-0.9.15-2.x86_64.rpm
elinks-0.11.2-1.x86_64.rpm

If you can build the binary rpms then it is not hard to build the source rpm's. From the same place you built the binaries go back and do something like 'rpmbuild -bs foo.spec' the source rpm's will be in someplace like the /usr/src/redhat/SRMS directory.

It might be a good idea in the future when building to use 'rpmbuild -ba foo.spec' that way you build the source rpm's as well as the binary rpm's.
