RPM binary package

This page decribes how to prepare binary package for RPM-based distributions (Fedora, RHELL), by the ordinary way. Building of package follows basic rules in How to create an RPM package.

It is supposed to run commands introduced by # as root

# id
uid=0(root) ..

and ones denoted by $ as an ordinary user:

$ id
uid=12345(user) ...


Following tools are required for the building:

Required tools could be installed by the command (valid for Fedora 21, modify to satisfy your needs):

# yum install fedora-packager gcc-gfortran gcc-c++ libgfortran-static libstdc++-static cfitsio-devel ImageMagick autoconfig automake wxGTK3-devel

A lot of dependencies will be requested. Imagemagic is installed by default. The lib...-static are added because ones are not included in devel packages directly.

Prepare building environment (if need):

$ rpmdev-setuptree

Build Of Stable Version

Download latest Munipack: and place it in ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES directory.

Prepare package:

$ cd ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES
$ tar zxfO munipack-0.5.7.tar.gz munipack-0.5.7/munipack.spec > ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/munipack.spec
$ cd ~/rpmbuild/SPECS
$ rpmbuild -ba munipack.spec

When the build finished sucessfully, the packages in ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/<ARCH>/ are ready to install. Their installation is strightforward:

$ cd ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/<ARCH>/
$ su
# rpm -i munipack-*.rpm

Build Of Development Version

Install Mercurial additionaly:

# yum install mercurial

Obtain latest source code from Mercurial and update their own version (set as 0.X.Y+my001):

$ export VER=0.X.Y+my001
$ hg clone munipack-${VER}/
$ cd munipack-${VER}/
$ ./bootstrap
$ cd ..
$ tar zcf munipack-${VER}.tar.gz munipack-${VER}/ --exclude ".hg*"

and follow instructions in previous sections.
