Creating an Eprints RPM
Download an appropriate EPrints Release
Creating the Eprints RPM requires root, because the process involves creating the eprints user and group.
Install rpm-build (depending on your package manager):
up2date rpm-build yum install -y rpm-build
Download the Eprints source file (eprints-x.x.x.tar.gz, version 3.0.1 and above).
Create the RPM and source RPMs (will error if there are any missing dependencies):
rpmbuild -ta eprints-x.x.x.tar.gz
The RPMs should be written to /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/ and /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS/.
See http://fedoranews.org/tchung/gpg/ for how to create a GPG key pair and signing an RPM. To avoid key warnings when using up2date or Yum all RPMs need to be signed, and the public key imported into the local system.
Building a Yum repository
Install createrepo from http://linux.duke.edu/projects/metadata/.
Create a directory structure containing RPMS and SRPMS directories:
. ./RPMS ./SRPMS
To create the repository metadata execute:
This should create a repodata directory.
Building an up2date repository
up2date uses an 'obsolete' repository structure and requires yum-arch (isn't in Yum version 3):
