Odamex's RPM Package
« on: October 13, 2008, 05:05:17 »
Hey, I just make binary rpm package for all (i hope) rpm based distributions where can be resolved dependencies from repository. Package was successfully tested and installed on Fedora 8 and 9, Mandriva 2008 and 2009 and openSUSE 11.0.

Package contains and install:
/usr/local/bin/odamex //client
/usr/local/bin/odasrv //server
/usr/local/bin/odalaunch //launcher
/usr/local/share/doom/odamex.wad //odamex.wad
**/usr/local/share/doom/freedoom.wad** //freedoom.wad
/usr/share/applications/odalaunch.desktop //menu entry for launcher
/usr/share/applications/odamex.desktop //menu entry for odamex client
/usr/share/icons/icon_odamex_96.png //icon for odamex in menu
/usr/share/icons/icon_odalaunch_96.png //icon for odamex launcher in menu

RPM make entry in menu in section Games or Games/Action or Games/Others if Action subsection does not exist. I make two versions, with and without freedoom.wad. Because I don't know, if is there problem with distribution of freedoom.wad with odamex.

With freedoom.wad is solved problem with Cannot find IWAD (try -waddir). User does not see this message, when try run odamex from GNOME/KDE menu, just nothing happens and thats little confusing, but as I said, I don't know, if freedoom.wad can be distributed with Odamex in one package, so thats reason for second package without freedoom.wad

Nice job there.

Would anyone be interested in an ebuild?

This is fantastic stuff.  Once I check it out and things look good I think it'll be worth adding to the sourceforge.net downloads.  What can we do about getting this into someplace where yum can find it?

Well, depends on the distribution, just become a package maintainer. For Fedora http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join or there is rpmfusion project (again fedora, red hat and CenOS) FAQ.

My apologies, I have not checked the forum for a long time. But since development of Odamex is active again, here I am :-) 0.7.0 version is actually available as a repository here https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/vain/odamex/ for all Fedora major releases (but RPM package itself should work almost on every RPM based Linux distro).

However during today (don't tell my boss :-)) I have prepared a new (more clean and complex spec file) build for Odamex version 0.8 with support of others RPM based Linux distributions supported by a copr project (Mageia, openSUSE, CentOS).
