Moving the repositories

As a few of you might know, I’m going to leave the Centre for Information Technology at Technical University of Ostrava within a few weeks. It’s been great fun to work here all the time but the last year. There’s no call for me to stay, almost everybody I have admired had left. The fun has gone away too. Well, this means I have to move my repositories which I have brought to University. [Read More]

Firefox 3.6.2 and Thunderbird 3.0.3 for CentOS 5.4

It’s a quite long time I have announced Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.0 packages for CentOS 5.

Announcement has been submitted via CentOS mail-list. See http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2010-February/005416.html and http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos/2010-February/090418.html. Packages have been tested by users and have been always within the testing repository only.

Today I’m pushing new firefox 3.6.2 into the stable repository together with xulrunner, mozilla-filesystem, and thunderbird. Packages are to be found here: http://fs12.vsb.cz/hrb33/el5/hrb/stable/i386/repoview/ http://fs12.vsb.cz/hrb33/el5/hrb/stable/x86_64/repoview/

Running yum-3.2.8 on CentOS 4.7 - part II.

Today I have looked again at yum 3.2.8 on Centos 4. I wanted everything to clean up, go back to unittests again. I have backported python-nose and started to clean up the source. Finally I had to make all yum tests python 2.3 compatible. Here is the result: [root@build-c4-i386 yum-3.2.8\]# make test .............................................................................................................................................................. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Ran 158 tests in 0.889s OK As you can see, all tests have passed. And as usual packages are available within my testing repo. [Read More]

Running yum-3.2.8 on CentOS 4.7

Today I spent a few hours testing and backporting yum-3.2.8 from CentOS 5.2 to CentOS 4.7. It wasn’t so hard to backport. Most of the time I have spent on testing and searching. Code is patched to allow sets, which are supported in python 2.3 :o) and that’s almost all. Final rpms are available for testing here: http://fs12.vsb.cz/hrb33/el4/hrb/testing/i386/repoview/ http://fs12.vsb.cz/hrb33/el4/hrb/testing/x86_64/repoview/ [root@webmel4 ~]# yum update yum Loading "fastestmirror" plugin Loading "installonlyn" plugin Setting up Update Process Setting up repositories Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Reading repository metadata in from local files Reducing CentOS.
