Even this might fail, though, and might require changes to the .spec
file. In this case, if you do not feel comfortable doing the changes,
The source RPM builds find (and was posted for) Mandrake 7.2. 8.0 just
needs a rebuild from the source RPM afaik. I may have access to an 8.0
machine Real Soon Now, and will post one then.
Announcing a test RPM release -- 7.1.1-4.PGDG.
The only change from 7.1.1-2.PGDG is the addition of a dynamic Python version
configuration -- this has only been tested fully on my RedHat 7.1 box as yet,
but I am awaiting the results of Justin's rebuild on Mandrake 8.0.
Feedback appreciated. For use on Mdk8, you must rebuild from the source RPM
- -- note that some things Mandrake is shipping with their RPM's are not
included with this one, as this one is trying to be generic, not
distribution-specific. I recommend using the RPM's shipped with the
distribution you are using (or updates designed for it), unless you just
_have_to_have_ newer functionality, or you want to help make the RPM's better
for the generic case.
If you have already downloaded and installed the -2 release, you do not need
to download the binaries of this one -- the change is on the building side of
the RPM's, not the installation side.
That being said, I am analyzing the changes made by the Mandrake Team, and
will likely include many of their changes as I have time, and as those
changes can be made generic. I especially like the inclusion of logo icons
in the Mandrake set.... :-) However, I prefer the elephant inside the
diamond logo rather than the outline 'cartoon' elephant. :-)
I'm also hoping to cryptographically sign RPM releases RSN -- but I have to
get it working on more than one machine first.
