ATrpms for Fedora 7
Posted on: 05/31/2007 10:49 PM

ATrpms is officially launching Fedora 7 support for i386, x86_64 and ppc.

http://ATrpms.net/dist/f7/

o The packages will be available at `date -d "Thu May 31 14:00 UTC"', which is Fedora's release. I usually wait for the official release announcement of Fedora to announce ATrpms' support, but due to LinuxTag activities I'll be afk for about 24h.

o The actual download location is http://dl.atrpms.net/. Mirrors are listed at http://atrpms.net/mirrors/

o "stable", "testing" and "bleeding", the three subrepos per distribution are not cumulative inclusive on the server side. E.g. you need to add "stable" for "testing", and both "stable" and "testing" for "bleeding".

ATrpms is a 3rd party general purpose package repository. It currently supports

o F7/i386, F7/x86_64, F7/ppc, FC6/i386, FC6/x86_64, FC6/ppc, FC5/i386, FC5/x86_64, FC5/ppc
o RHEL5/i386, RHEL5/x86_64, RHEL4/i386, RHEL4/x86_64, RHEL3/i386, RHEL3/x86_64

ATrpms support for RH7.3, RH8.0, RH9 and FC1-FC4 was EOL'd with the last year's passing. FC5 support will be EOL'd once the Fedora Project drops support for it (e.g. in approximately one month).

Configuration for package resolvers (replace i386 with x86_64 or ppc as needed)

Enjoy!
