Package offerings are lightly tested, but we can't make any guarantees of compatibility or issues in the packages; you may not want to use this on a production server. This repository is not endorsed by IBM or our employeers.

Install Instructions

To install, add this Repo file to /QOpenSys/etc/yum/repos.d. The packages are built for IBM i 7.2, and should function on IBM i 7.3 and IBM i 7.4. (AIX is not supported.)

I have started signing packages. You can install my public key into RPM with rpm --import You can verify it's installed by running rpm -q gpg-pubkey --qf '%{name}-%{version}-%{release} --> %{summary}\n';. You can verify RPMs manually with --checksig. Once a full rebuild happens, you can turn on package verification for this repo.

All software has SRPMs; the patches and specfiles they are built from are on GitHub.
