Hi Dominic, is it possible for you to build geany and geany-plugins also for EPEL? If not, can you provide me with some support to do it? I have some packaging skills. --Stardust85 (talk) 14:54, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
- As discussed on jabber, I'd like to be a co-maintainter, which will maintain the EL6 (and in future maybe also EL7) branch. --Stardust85 (talk) 15:28, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I already did this:
$ fedpkg clone --anonymous geany # cloned the pkg $ fedpkg clone --anonymous geany-plugins $ spectool -g -R geany/geany.spec # downloaded the source tarball/patches $ spectool -g -R geany-plugins/geany-plugins.spec $ sudo yum-builddep -y geany/geany.spec # installed build dependencies (all was installable from Oracle Linux 6 official repo + EPEL) $ rpmbuild -bb geany/geany.spec # successfully built geany, geany-devel and geany-debuginfo $ sudo rpm -Uvh ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/geany-devel-1.24.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/geany-1.24.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm # installed my new packages $ geany # tested, it works $ sudo yum-builddep -y geany-plugins/geany-plugins.spec # again, no complaints :) $ cp geany-plugins/*.patch ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES # here are some patches, which are needed to put to SOURCES $ rpmbuild -bb geany-plugins/geany-plugins.spec # this step took really long (some minutes) and puked tons of lines, but finally built lots of plugin rpms :)
Then I tried to install all/some plugins. When installing all plugins, there was missing dependencies:
[nsbuild@devbox x86_64]$ sudo rpm -Uvh geany-plugins-* error: Failed dependencies: python-docutils is needed by geany-plugins-geanygendoc-1.24-1.el6.x86_64 tex(latex) is needed by geany-plugins-geanylatex-1.24-1.el6.x86_64 gdb >= 7.3 is needed by geany-plugins-scope-1.24-1.el6.x86_64 [nsbuild@devbox x86_64]$
The most important thing for me is that the geanyvc plugin works :)
Is this the correct way to build and test it? I probably don't have koji access yet.
