RPM package for AX25 libraries

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Hi Arno,

You encouraged me to build an RPM package for AX25 softwares.
I tried without success checkinstall and went to rpmbuild following
a few documentation and RPM howtos.
I decided to start with libax25-0.0.12-rc2 including two patches from me.
After a number of trials, the learning curve started to take off.
I finally made two RPM packages for 32 and 64 bits systems.
Due to my tiny experience I was not able to make a relocatable library.
Then it has to be moved into /usr/local/lib as explained in the updated
FPAC MINI HOWTO chapter 3.


Please follow the links for downloading the libax25 rpm packages.

I would appreciate any comment about the packages use and if needed
I will continue the work for patched ax25-tools and ax25-apps.

Dear Bernard,

Many thanks for your ax25 patches and the great HOWTO which really help
to get Packet Radio running with the (new) pseudo terminal multiplexer !

Users who followed the steps outlined at


might face difficulties when installing other software that depends on
ax25 libraries, tools and applications. The package manager is not aware
that the latter already has been installed from source.

A nice way out is to use  "checkinstall" instead of "make install".

"checkinstall" will create a package (Slackware, RPM or Debian) which
then can be installed with the package manager of the user's Linux

Most distributions already have "checkinstall" in their repositories. If
not the homepage is


Could you please add "checkinstall" to your MINI-HOWTO ?

Below please find a sample "checkinstall" dialogue.
