More Fedora RPMS

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

I have been on a kick lately building packages for Fedora. I have started to build packages for:

And several others which are slipping my mind right now. I plan to add as many new packages each day as I can. I am still building fluxbox and fluxbox-svn packages too. All the packages are built using mock to help make sure that all the deps are met during build time, and that they are built in a clean env every time (just like in the fedora extras project 🙂 ) In the next couple of weeks I will be submitting all the packages I have been building for review to the fedora extras project (I really hope they get accepted and find their way in so I can yum install them on my other systems 😛 ).

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

Many of you may not know that google is now offering project hosting. This is great. I have been needing svn access for a project I work on, and this made it simple. I just went and filled out a short form and started using the service. Thanks google 🙂

I will also have 1.0rc2 release packages up sometime tonight for core 5 and 6 with 3 and 4 to follow.

Fluxmod is Back!!

Wednesday, September 13th, 2006

Well, after who knows how long of being gone an old site so many fluxbox users grew to love for styles and an overall community is back. This time fluxmod is not run by ikaro though. This time a small group comprised of Meltir, Tenner, and my self are in charge of whats going on. As many of you already know Tenner is famous from his wonderful styles he makes and excellent tech support in IRC, Meltir is famous around the fluxbox IRC chat room for being an excellent tech support guy and over all great fellow, and I am just known for always being in the IRC room (hey someone has got to hold down the fort 😛 ). Right now there is already a large ammount of styles up for download. We will be working on getting forums, and other features added as soon as possible. We are looking forward to building a solid stable community for the worlds best Window Manager fluxbox.
