How to set up a limesurvey sandbox

From FedoraProject

Jump to: navigation, search

Install the package

This package is still under review, BZ #508817. However, we can still deploy and test the current SRPM.

Warning (medium size).png
THESE INSTRUCTIONS DO NOT YET WORK
They are being written as a work in progress as we learn how to set up a sandbox ourselves.

Do these actions as a normal user. DO NOT RUN THEM AS ROOT!

# Download the SRPM
wget http://sparks.fedorapeople.org/Packages/limesurvey/limesurvey-1.86-1.fc12.src.rpm

# Make a place to build RPMs in your homedir
mkdir $HOME/rpm $HOME/rpm/SOURCES $HOME/rpm/SPECS $HOME/rpm/BUILD $HOME/rpm/SRPMS $HOME/rpm/RPMS $HOME/rpm/RPMS/i386

# Set the directories you just created
# as the place where you'll be building RPMs
echo "%_topdir $HOME/rpm" >> $HOME/.rpmmacros

# Install the RPM
rpm -ivh limesurvey-1.86-1.fc12.src.rpm

Error messages so far

I have an md5sum error message, which is weird because rpm -Kv checks out. Mel Chua 02:48, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
