My new repository using OpenSUSE Build Service
Yes! OpenSUSE Build Service rocks hard! 🙂
I decided to start using this new and awesome service from the nice people that make SUSE Linux. It’s a very comples compilation farm where people put their spec files and sources and build RPM packages for various SUSE releases (from 9.0 up to 10.1) and even other distributions (currently Fedora and Mandriva).
Using this so neat service I can build packages for SUSE Linux 10.0 and 10.1 either on i586 or x86_64 with mere 2 or 3 commands. After successfuly building, the packages are copied to an ftp area, the repository metadata is generated, and everything is automatically mirrored. Is it possible to be any easier? 😉
I’m currently working to move all my packages from the old repository to the new one. So if you would like to give it a try, you just need to add the repositories for 10.0 or 10.1 on your package manager of choice. Mine is (obviously) smart, so, the trick is:
smart channel –add http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/netmask/SUSE_Linux_10.0/home:netmask.repo
smart channel –add http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/netmask/SUSE_Linux_10.1/home:netmask.repo
I hope my packages are usefull to anyone other than me. 😉
By the way, I’m always open to new suggestions if you need something I could help providing.
