[jitsi-users] RPM-Package for Opensuse 11.2-11.4?


#1

http://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/rpm/ is empty.

It would be nice, if someone could give a short howto for jitsi with
Opensuse (starting from 11.2 to 11.4), including the needed Java
configuration. Especially the other packages should be mentioned, which
are necessary after a standard Opensuse installation, including the
repos for the needed packages, if they are not in the default repo.

Jitsi is easy to install with ubuntu, but I have no chance to do it
with Opensuse.

Thanks

Al

Welcome to the joys of Open Source. It is easy to package for a distribution that you use. A lot harder for one you don't. Especially if it uses an entirely different package architecture.

But this is an easy and noticeable way to contribute to a project.

Also, as a separate bug note... Since it seems the RPMs are no longer being built, we aught to remove the link. At least until someone else can take it over.

Thanks Al and Lee for reporting this!

I've just removed the link until we have the rpm packages repaired.

Cheers,

Welcome to the joys of Open Source.

:wink:

This is the reason, why I install Ubuntu and Suse as dualboot.
The troubles with both distros are nearly the same, but some apps work
very well with one, but not with the other.

I don't have the skills and possibilities to compile it on a daily
basis, but I am happy to test a rpm package.

It would be great if jitsi would be accepted at the packman repo:
http://packman.links2linux.de/ Probably the biggest and best additional
repo for Opensuse.

There is a mailinglist too:
http://lists.links2linux.de/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/packman

AFAIK, you can post to the list without subscription.

I have sent this mail to the packman-ml already:

Jitsi (ex sip-communicator) is one of the best SIP and messenger
programm, written in Java, I found. At the moment the rpm-version is
unmaintained. It would be great, if jitsi could be added by Packman.

Unfortunately I had problems to install it with Opensuse. I think there
must be a few modifications made with the dependencies, eg:

"java >= 1.5.0", and not "java >= 1:1.5.0"

For people who use messenger services and SIP, jitsi is my 1st
recommendation. Jitsi is the simplest way, because of 1 app, for audio
via sip and audio via xmpp.

So is there anyone, who will build jitsi for Opensuse?

Also, as a separate bug note... Since it seems the RPMs are no
longer being built, we aught to remove the link. At least until
someone else can take it over.

Hopefally it will get into packman. Maybe the coders of Jitsi can
contact packman?

Hi,

I have helped Pavel Tankov (who was really busy) to fix the builds for
new Jitsi rpm packages.
As I don't have Opensuse to test, I'm also not a rpm specialist :slight_smile: are
you sure changing dependency to java >= 1.5.0 will not break the
package for other rpm based distros? If this happens we must build
separate rpm packages for Opensuse.

Sorry, I am not a java coder, but as already mentioned, the best thing
would be, if someone adopts the package for Suse at Packman. It looks
like Pascal Bleser could be a 1st contact.

Please let me know, if you would like this. If so, I will contact
Pascal, if you want, and I will ask him.

I am also not familiar with the Opensuse Build Service
(OBS) - http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Build_Service . Maybe you can test
it there, if you sign up there.

Of course, I will try a install, when you inform me, that a new version
is available.
