TiLP - Fedora Packages
« on: August 10, 2011, 04:17:29 pm »
Not terribly long ago, I decided to learn how to make RPM packages for Fedora. The software I chose to package was TiLP, because there are no up-to-date packages and because running the installer script on Fedora (especially 64-bit Fedora) seems to have additional complications.

After the next release of TiLP, I intend to try and get them into the official Fedora repos. I'm waiting because there are various issues with TiLP 1.15 that rpmlint (that's the tool for checking RPM packages for conforming to standards and suchlike) complained about.

So, in the meantime, here are the RPMs. To install them, either use a GUI tool (whatever Fedora launches when you double-click on a .rpm file), or use the rpm command: "rpm -i [filename]" as root. Please note: you must install the RPMs in this order:

-libticonv
-libtifiles2
-libticables2
-libticalcs2
-tilp2, gfm, and tiemu

Then, you'll need to run the "tilp" command in the terminal (or "gfm" to use gfm, or "tiemu" to use tiemu).

If you use 32-bit Fedora, you must download the i386 zip. If you use 64-bit Fedora, you should download the x86_64 zip, but you can install the 32-bit packages instead, if you really want to.

Nice, these should be added to a repository.
Did you add what the dependencies are to the packages, so the install order is enforced?

Yes, I did.

Hmm... I know Fedora project contributors can make repositories on the Fedora People site (repos.fedorapeople.org). I suppose I could look into doing that, until 1.16 comes out and I submit these packages to the official repos.

Since I have a thread about this here-- bump!

The packages have now been accepted into the official Fedora repositories. Everything but tilp2 is install-able right now on Fedora 21 or Fedora 22 (including all of libti*, tfdocgen, and gfm); tilp2 was just built for Fedora Rawhide this afternoon and needs to be pushed to stable. This should take about a week :)
