Testing the Newly Created RPM with Koji March 21, 2010Posted by Paul Whalen in Uncategorized.
Now that I have successfully created an rpm I need to test that source using Koji. Koji will take the rpm and ensure it builds on the four supported architectures for Fedora – i386, x86_64, ppc, and ppc64. Following the instructions posted on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/UsingKoji. I installed Koji using the command
yum install fedora-packager
Then ran the set-up by running
After this was completed the RPM was submitted using the command
koji build dist-f12 --scratch snort-18.104.22.168-1.fc12.src.rpm
Signing into the web interface for Koji found at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/ you can then view the results and see information if the RPM failed to build. The sign in is done with the certificate created in the Koji guide. After signing in I found my RPM did not successfully build on the x86_64 platform. I will have to revisit this, however we now have a more important task at hand. Which will be covered in the next post.
