Re: createrep question



The master himself! Thanks for the quick reply.

Since it's COTS, I cannot provide the RPM. The vendor appears to offer an RPM as an afterthought; their principal market is Windows.

I've patched our createrepo to relax this behavior with a command line option. Would this be useful to others?

B/c that's how you can detect a sourcerpm.

How is the pkg being made such that it does not have sourcerpm tag?

Can you provide a  link to this pkg?
