RPM Packages for CentOS-4 and CentOS-5

The aim of this repository is to provide an easy way to access rpm's originally built for related projects, but not available to run on CentOS without a rebuild.

Report all bugs and issues to me via email at kbsingh {at} karan {d0t} org. You can contact me either via email, or over ICQ. My UIN is 2522219. If you have any package requests, feel free to drop me an email.

There are two repositories hosted here, the Fedora Extras rebuilt for CentOS and the Misc pkg. The Misc pkg tree includes various rpms that I have built from source or src.rpm rebuilds. There might be pkgs there that will overwrite / replace core pkgs included in CentOS. To use the Misc Pkgs repository, you will need the FExtras repo enabled as well, some of the dependencies are resolved there.


Installation - Fedora Extras rebuild Repository

On CentOS 4 and CentOS 5 ( yum version 2.2 and higher ) : Download file : kbsingh-CentOS-Extras.repo and save it in /etc/yum.repos.d/

If you want to track updates using the up2date-applet or use the up2date package manager, add this line to /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

   yum kb-centos-extras http://centos.karan.org/el4/extras/stable/$ARCH/RPMS

Installation - Misc Packages rebuild Repository

On CentOS 4 and CentOS 5 ( yum version 2.2 and higher ) : Download file : kbsingh-CentOS-Misc.repo and save it in /etc/yum.repos.d/

If you want to track updates using the up2date-applet or use the up2date package manager, add this line to /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

      yum kb-centos-misc http://centos.karan.org/el4/misc/stable/$ARCH/RPMS

GPG key

The GPG key used to sign packages in this repository can installed by running  ( as root )
    rpm --import http://centos.karan.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-karan.org.txt

Notes :

1. At this moment, yum and up2date are the only supported clients. If there is any real interest in other package managers ( apt etc ), I might include support for those at a future date.

2. Not all packages in each upstream repository build clean, and the build process is an ongoing thing. Therefore, you might find that not all packages from upstream are available here.

3. Source RPMS that are output from my build process are made available ( signed with the same gpg key ) in the SRPMS directory, along with the build logs and debug info output from the same build process.
