Here is a review request:

Feedback & testing much appreciated.

For Fedora, there is But “Last update: Sep 20, 2014”

And also:

CentOS 6: centos6 x86_64 rpm "I hope someone smarter than me, and with more time on their hands, can create a nice build environment and can do a better job."


I look at the latest spec file, and it looks sane enough to me (although I don’t run RedHat and it’s the first time I’ve looked at a spec file). However I wouldn’t bundle the stindex and stevents binaries, they are not something a general user would use I think. Well, maybe stevents but surely not stindex.

Thanks Jakob!

Could / should we be collaborating on files such as this somewhere like

If so, what is best place?


One more repo:

Designed for CentOS 6 or 7 / ClearOS 6 or 7. Will likely work on Fedora

According to RedHat (Fedora, CENTOS, …) guidelines, the SRPM must build everything from source.

Hello all,

If this doens’t sound too late for this thread I’ve created a .spec from the source tarball for version 0.14.23 You can get it on github

I adapted from mlazarov (listed in the public contributions) and the bugzilla report from this topic. Any review appreciated, I know there’s still some work to be done to comply to Fedora .spec requirements.

I assume you mean some other version as there is no 0.18.1. Otherwise carry on, I guess. :slight_smile:

Oh, my bad I was looking at some other piece of software at the same time and mixed the version numbers, I will edit :slight_smile:

Thanks @calmh
