A brand new shiny yum repository!

Yes, that’s right, I have decided to start hosting a yum repository. I decided this because some packages just need to be packaged and won’t make it into big repos in some cases.

Here’s how to get YOUR rpm package into MY yum repo:

  1. If your package is compiled, compile it for as many architectures and distributions as possible.
  2. Send a link to all your compiled RPMs, and source code to spamtrap AT oks DOT verymad DOT net
  3. I’ll email you back if your package was accepted.

Here’s a link to the .repo file you will need to use the repository:

http://fpaste.org/paste/15984/plain

simply put that file in /etc/yum.repos.d/ as oks-yum.repo and you’re good to go!

Working on the WicketPixie WordPress theme

As you very well may know, I have put the WicketPixie WordPress theme into Assembla (with Chris’ approval). That’s why OKS Blog has had problems. But i have restored to a working version and I put it in the Assembla SVN. I am planning on making a “test bed” that runs the latest version of WicketPixie, which should be easy to maintain because Assembla has a feature where it will do a GET request of any URL when a commit to the Subversion repository is performed. But I will have to secure the page to prevent other people from updating it unnecessarily.
