Description Prarit Bhargava 2006-09-07 17:15:59 UTC
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 17:18:25 UTC
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.

Comment 5 Doug Chapman 2006-09-08 18:54:31 UTC

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 12:34:36 UTC
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 :)
