Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] RPM build changes
Date: Fri, 12 May 2006 23:06:57
1 Hello All,
3 I have been fiddling with Portage for a few weeks now. Recently, I was
4 trying to get the RPM creation with ebuild to work a little better. I
5 noticed that currently emerge does not support building RPMs, but ebuild
6 does.
8 I have added some code to emerge that can build RPM for a package and
9 all its dependencies. It will optionally merge the package to the system
10 or just build an RPM. I am basically making this work very similar to
11 the --buildpkg and --buildpkgonly options.
13 I am using --buildrpm (-r) and --buildrpmonly (-R) options currently for
14 these two tasks. However, if those two short options are reserved for
15 some other purpose, I am fine with changing them. (If so, please suggest
16 different short options).
18 If this functionality is likely to be useful to other people also, I
19 would love to submit a patch.
21 I think I have somewhat older version of portage. Which version should I
22 build the patch against, if I have to?
24 Thanks,
25 Nimish
