ATrpms for FC4/i386 and FC4/x86_64
Posted on: 07/15/2005 09:38 AM

An announcement from Axel Thimm:

ATrpms is officially launching Fedora Core 4 support for i386 and x86_64.

Most packages were offered during FC4t2 and FC4t3 releases, but the rebuild for FC4 final had some delays due to some larger restructuring:

o Preferred download location is (new directory layout). The old URLs under will still remain valid for a transition time, but will be less often updated.

o "stable", "testing" and "bleeding", the three subrepos per distribution are not anymore cumulative inclusive on the server side. This was done to reduce the time the metadata recreation requires. 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 FC4/i386, FC4/x86_64, FC3/i386, FC3/x86_64, FC2/i386, FC2/x86_64, FC1 o RHEL4/i386, RHEL4/x86_64, RHEL3/i386, RHEL3/x86_64
o RH9, RH8.0 and RH7.3

ATrpms support for some of these distribution will soon go EOL.
