Testing the Newly Created RPM with Koji March 21, 2010

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

/usr/bin/fedora-packager-setup

After this was completed the RPM was submitted using the command

koji build dist-f12 --scratch snort-2.8.5.2-1.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.
