rpmpm is a frontend for creating RPM packages quickly and easily. It requires root access.

Since version 0.8 minimal spec files are kept in:


- Handle large scripts correctly
- Automatically handle version changes
- Moving to root dir works from another partition
- Recognize lowercase documents

1.1 - Small improvements and bugfixes

- Support for Installwatch
- URL tag is now clickable & editable
- Spec files can be deleted with the Delete key
- Spec files can be created from Template, RPM, spec file
- Rename dialog was added
- Better: autodetection, configure script, messages

- Slightly better autodetection & spec editor
- KProcess instead of QProcess (for more control)
- No more segfaults (hopefully)
- Configure options are now available

- Faster RPM creation (no compression, decompression step)
- Minimized default.spec => all spec files have changed
- Specs (minimal) are now kept in /usr/src/packages/SPECS/mini

- Proper exiting (stopping all processes)
- Added a dialog asking whether to abort

- Better (more useful) error reporting
- A simple configure script was added

- Spec files can now be edited with a special form
- A few bugs fixed
- More help

- Uses kdesu if it is available
- Added an extra check for autodetection
- More info

- Konqueror servicemenus
- New RPMs are now moved to the input's root directory

0.2 - Bugfixes (after testing many packages)

0.1 - First release

(Source + RPM + Spec files - ALL IN ONE ZIP)

 2 sexy for working

Too bad its still too hard, i tried it with most rencent amarok 1.4beta3.3 rpm source package in mandriva which works fine, but i was unable to add its spec only open it and edit but it wasn't in main window. Also deleting these default specs is slightly annoying problem.

Nevertheless this peace of software is just that entire community needs for next step of world domination,you could do wizard interface since rpm packaging isn't so easy.. perhaps?

And if you'll need translation, i could do czech.

> i tried it with ... rpm source package
I din't try src.rpm-s but its a good idea to test these, too (probably I will provide an input for these in the future).
> i was unable to add its spec
Did you run it as root? rpmpm doesn't work yet otherwise.
> deleting these default specs is slightly annoying problem
Yeah, I know (with the DEL key). I couldn,t manage to add a context menu to the list. Maybe a button will do.
> And if you'll need translation, i could do czech.
WOW that would be great? I just don't understand yet how translating apps work. If I do, I will surely ask you. Thanks again!

about source rpm all i did was trying to compile its content to another. package with different compile flags, option for recompiling srpms is not needed in my opinion.

> Did you run it as root? rpmpm doesn't work yet otherwise.
no, i dont use root usually, but /usr/src/ is owned by me and every night controled for permisions by cron, ill wonder if it will fix that :)

i didn't know how to integrate translation engine into app niether, but i found these http://developer.kde.org/documentation/library/kdeqt/kde3arch/kde-i18n-howto.html
I hope it will be usable for you.

 Positive impression

Hi, I used rpmpm to build my first generic Linux RPM for PeaZip and I must say that your program works very well, and that it is simple and effective.
My RPM is still quite simple, so I had not tried to do particulary advanced tasks, however the first impression of use of rpmpm is VERY good.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
