Description Prarit Bhargava 2006-09-07 13:15:59 EDT
The buildos RPM is a script I wrote a while back as a wrapper
to anaconda to quickly build new OS distros.  The script executes the createrepo
and the buildinstall commands, as well as building a DVD or CD distribution.

buildos SRPM attached.

Comment 2 Prarit Bhargava 2006-09-07 13:18:25 EDT
I tested this out on ppc, ppc64, i386, i686, x86_64, and ia64 arches.

I'd rather see this in Extras space, and if you go the extras route, you can get
it available for FC6.

FYI, the help for buildos shows an argument called --productversion however the
code appears to actually use --version.

Added new source rpm that fixes the issue dchapman raised.

This still has a use even with pungi available?

This is one bash script and is not arch dependent, make it BuildArch: noarch.

Which will also get rid of the empty debuginfo problem.

I think it would be good practice to Require the things it uses, so people can
install it and have it just work. anaconda, anaconda-runtime, createrepo, and
mkisofs come to mind.

There is no URL or Source URL in the spec. I assume this srpm is the sources of
this thing.

Does this have a version number? The rpm says 1.0.0 but the only version in the
sources, in the comment of the script, is 0.7.

%files needs a %defattr statement.
Comment 9 Prarit Bhargava 2007-05-27 08:34:36 EDT
No longer an issue -- jkeating's pungi does all of this.

Duplicate functionality is not an blocking issue -- but sure 
decreases the incentive to submit and maintain a package.

True :), but I'm willing to surrender to pungi :)
