Description Brandon 2012-09-02 09:43:12 EDT

I wrote these instructions about 6 months ago.  I have not had time to work on them because I have been busy with Classes.

Instructions to build RPM

Source code: http://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/LatestReleaseLinux
0ad.spec http://pastebin.com/AwxkQ53r
0ad-data.spec http://pastebin.com/Cs7tQXFc

1) as the root install these packages
yum install @development-tools
yum install fedora-packager

yum install boost-devel DevIL-devel fam-devel gcc-c++ gcc-c libcurl-devel libjpeg-devel libpng-devel libvorbis-devel libxml2-devel nasm python
subversion zip cmake desktop-file-utils openal-soft-devel pkgconfig SDL-devel wxGTK-devel p7zip p7zip-plugins

2) in terminal as the root type the following:
/usr/sbin/useradd makerpm
passwd makerpm
(that command allows you to create a password for the user you will be building packages as.

3) log in to makerpm

4) In terminal type the following

http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=AwxkQ53r copy the raw paste contents open up gedit and save it as 0-ad.spec
http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=Cs7tQXFc copy the raw paste contents open up gedit and save it as 0-ad-data.spec

copy 0-ad.spec to /home/makerpm/buildrpm/SPECS
copy 0-ad-data.spec to the same directory

Next copy 0ad-r10803-alpha-unix-build.tar.gz to the SOURCES directory under buildrpm directory

go back to the SPECS directory and type the following directory

rpmbuild -ba 0ad.spec

after successful buiding clear out the bulidroot directory the sources directory and the build directory

Next copy 0ad-r10803-alpha-unix-data.tar.gz to the SOURCES directory under /home/makerpm/buildrpm directory

change to the SPECS directory

type rpmbuild -ba 0ad-data.spec

your rpm for the program should appear in the RPMs folder under the ~/buildrpm directory


.specs were modifed from the open suse build service to work for fedora.

the spec files were obtained from opensuse build services and modified to work with fedora.

This is already on the Games wishlist at:


and I've added a link there to this bug for more info.

Until someone picks it up from there, there's little else to do. Marking as 'deferrred' pending that.
