View Full Version : What software is missing in the Fedora repository?

Hi,

I am doing a quick survey for software that you use on a regular basis that is not available via the Fedora repository. Software that you suggest should be free and open source, free of patent and other legal issues.

Tell me the home page of the software and give me a brief description on what it does. Bonus points if you can see in Google for "software-name fedora package review" to figure it if it is already in the Fedora package review queue. If you know of RPM packages in other distributions for the software your are suggesting, that information is useful as well.

Gjiten is one I miss. The old version (for FC4) doesn't work in Fedora 10 :( Although a DEB of the latest (well, it's still old!) is available for Ubuntu/Mint :)

Panini perspective tool (formerly known as pvqt) http://sourceforge.net/projects/pvqt/
RPMs for Fedora and a spec file are available at http://hanzlici.cz/packages/fedora/panini/ but I can't find any package review requests.

Hi,

Mplayer - is already included in RPM Fusion and won't be in Fedora due to the patent issues associated with it.

Dansguardian - review at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=458643

Rest of the packages, I will check

Do add-ons to programs already in fedora count? such as a pidgin extension?

CeltX http://celtx.com/

It uses derivative of Netscape's Mozilla Public License (MPL) (http://www.celtx.com/CePL/) not sure if that is acceptable though.

(Admittedly it's peanuts to install but would be nice to have it in repos for convenience.)

Another is Inform7 http://www.inform-fiction.org/ they do offer generic Linux build but I can't find licensing information about it anywhere. Alternatively Gnome Inform (http://gnome-inform7.sourceforge.net//) which is under GPL (never tried).

I think pdfchain would be a good addition, it's a shame it's still a alpha version ( if I had the time I would package it myself ).

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfchain


Here's a rough srpm, it isn't up to review standard.

http://leigh123linux.fedorapeople.org/pub/srpm/pdfchain-0.99-1.fc10.src.rpm


Would Google Earth meet the packaging guidelines like this

http://leigh123linux.fedorapeople.org/srpm/googleearth-5.0.11729.1014-1.fc11.src.rpm

Debian includes a Google Earth package in there repo.

http://packages.debian.org/lenny/googleearth-package


utility to automatically build a Debian package of Google Earth

Google Earth is available for GNU/Linux from their web site, but is not only not Free Software, but is completely undistributable by a third party.
This utility makes it possible to build your own personal Debian package of Google Earth. The packaging itself is Free Software, but the Google Earth program is governed by the copyright holder (Google), so you may be limited as to what you can do with the resulting package (i.e. no redistribution, etc). This package will simply help you create the package--it is your responsibility to use the resulting package responsibly.

Hi,

Yes, pidgin extensions can be packaged. If you had one in mind, let me know. CEPL is not in the approved licensing list, so I would have to ask Fedora Legal for advice. Hacks for proprietary software would not be allowed. Requests for updates of existing software should go into http://bugzilla.redhat.com

7th May 2009, 08:46 PM
Ok Rahul

http://code.google.com/p/pidgin-musictracker/

It's under GPLv2.

Notes:
I have successfully got version "0.5.0" to compile on Fedora 10 64-bit, they all compile no problem, even 0.4.17. However, on 64-bit, if you compile standardly, it doesn't always show up in extensions list, however on 0.5.0 this is not a problem.

There is a supposed fix to this on 0.4.17, actually 0.4.17 contains this fix, but it did not :)

Read all the release notes if you package it about the 64-bit.

Note: Not to be confused with the other music tracker. Here (http://code.google.com/p/musictracker/)




Edit: After checking the pages I spotted a link "fedora RPMs" that hasn't been there long. Seems to be out of date though xD.

My bad, I didn't spot it was in koji till AFTER this post.

Rahul,
I am certainly in the minority here, but I have noticed that many amateur radio softwares are missing from the fedora repos, yet are in the Debian repos. I could be wrong, but I think that many of those programs used to be available in fedora core. Perhaps it is a problem with no one keeping them up-to-date.
Just something to keep in the back of your mind. Thanks,

I thought that was the case. I vaguely remembered something along those lines. Shucks, looking at my old tarballs or salvaged RPMS, it seems as if Fedora has gotten the things that I used to need, e.g., maildrop, getmail---ohhhh----.

How about gbuffy, though it's so old by now, I suspect I'm the only one using it, I still find it better suited for fluxbox with mutt than just about anything else.

http://www.fiction.net/blong/programs/gbuffy/

The awesome window manager would be another nice one, as I remember, I had trouble getting that build on Fedora--I think I wound up using alien on Ubuntu to get an rpm.


http://awesome.naquadah.org/

Note that these are just my very casual wishlist, and almost certainly not worth a developer's already rather sparse free time, especially as they're rather easy to install otherwise (with the possible exception of awesome--but my memory is hazy, it might have been CentOS where I had the trouble.)

Ahhhhh

There is one, that I would like, and I think many others would too.. libpam-unix2 is the Ubuntu package name. It would be nice if it were trivial to implement blowfish. (Quickly checks rawhide with yum search--half the time, I build something from source and it turns out it's been added to a repo.) Nope, doesn't seem to be available.

So, that one is a moderately legitimate request. :)

Hey, Rhaul.

A widely used program not included in the repos: http://argouml.tigris.org/
It's under a BSD license. No results showed up in Google for a Fedora package review.

Other random (probably less important) packages:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/jep/ (GPL)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/tinyuml (GPL)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/phplot/ (GPL)

ArgoUML should definitely be in the repos. Also, I followed Steve's link a bit :) and tried MuseScore—it looks pretty solid.

Rahul,
Off the top of my head; here is one that I used before coming to Fedora:

Linrad

http://www.nitehawk.com/sm5bsz/linuxdsp/linrad.htm

If you scroll down the page, you will see that it is GNU.

UPDATE: actually, it is not even GNU, but is completely free...from the dev page:

"Open source programs usually have a license. Linrad does not. It is free, without copyright and it can be used by anyone for any purpose."

This won't work in Fedora even if I did include this PAM module. SUSE where this originates from patches glibc to support it but Fedora ( in 11) has already moved to using a stronger crypt with SHA256

A few things:

* If you are referring to a bug, it is useful to provide the bug number

* Maintainers are responsible for the packages they own. It is possible that the package in question is orphaned. Most of the people are volunteers and there is always more bugs than there is resources to handle them. So people prioritize. A updated version is a lower priority to bugs and bugs are prioritized according to the severity and some things are just lost in the process as well unfortunately.

* Fedora Project has never claimed that it would absolutely ship the latest bleeding edge software at all times.or even that it is bleeding edge.

* You are welcome to participate and help maintain packages.

How about Amarok 1.4x?

2.x's UI is just not for everybody! 2.1 is better but still a step backwards when compared to 1.4.

RahulSundaram
9th May 2009, 01:51 PM
Hi,

I am not going to be looking at packaging older versions of Amarok. It likely requires gross hacks at the packaging level to make it parallel installable and I think, the way forward is to file bug reports and enhancements requests for things missing. Just like KDE 4, itself, these sort of major rewrites just take time to mature. Of course, you may disagree but then you are free to maintain the package.

Python 3 is missing :P

Also, Transmission BT client, which appears to be a default package (?) in F10 is not in any update repo I can find - there are updates for Transmission on the official site, it would be nice to get these.

I've switched to using Deluge BT client, because it is getting updates. Otherwise I would have been happy using the already installed Transmission BT client :)

If a package is going to be a default install, one would hope it's maintained.

Transmission is maintained well and continues get updates in the devel branch. The maintainer has just chosen for whatever reasons not to push new versions as updates into existing releases.

It isn't that difficult to install, but 'twould be nice if Nicotine+ (http://www.nicotine-plus.org/) was yum-installable. An rpm of an older version (1.2.8) (http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/4836652/com/nicotine-plus-1.2.8-1.n0i.1.fc8.i386.rpm.html) is available for Fedora 8 from Marius Feraru, and it seems not too difficult to package (http://nicotine.thegraveyard.org/cgi-bin/faqw.py?req=show&file=faq02.004.htp).

I would be so bold as to volunteer to package it, but don't want to make a mess of it and destroy people's installations. If it really is as straight-forward as running this command, and then submitting the package to wherever packages do get submitted, I'll be happy to do it.

Ah, I beg your pardon for the delay! I've had a little go at building it, but have failed. I had to do one tweak (commenting out the icon line in setup.cfg, if that means anything to you) to make it progress with the process. Now it gets stuck with the error:

can't copy 'files/nicotine-plus-32px.png': doesn't exist or not a regular file
while the file certainly does exist, and appears to be a regular file.

Some more tweaking is needed, but if that isn't enough I'll have to open up a new thread to hopefully get it built collaboratively.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging_Survey_May_2009
Am I the only one having trouble seeing this in Firefox? The right side gets cut off, with no horizontal scrollbar to see it. There are 4 columns, and the Comments column isn't completely visible even with the window maximized, and even the Upstream URL column gets cut off in a normal size window. :(

Which version of Firefox do you use? I have no problem with Firefox 3.5 beta on Fedora 11 (Rawhide to become stable 11).

No problem here. FF 3.0.1

The table doesn't shrink if you make your browser width less than ~1000p and no horizontal scrollbar appears. I've seen this before on fedoraproject wiki pages eg some of the testday results tables were even wider and you couldn't read the comments on the rhs.

Yeah, I have a 19" LCD at 1280x1024 resolution, so I usually run Firefox in a 800 pixel wide window. Here's what that Fedora Wiki Package Survey page looks like even in a 1280 pixel wide window:

http://imgur.com/FuDSa.png

Look at how the comments column on the far right for the "unknown horizon", "transmageddon" and "cmu common lisp" packages are cut off. And that's on the widest possible Firefox window for my screen. Sorry to be critical, but that's just terrible web page design. :(

Found another few applications that would be nice to have in Fedora

Mumble http://mumble.sourceforge.net/

Both the Mumble client and the Murmur (mumble) server. These seems to be packaged for Debian/Ubuntu, but this app is a great alternative to Teamspeak and Ventrillo.

I have tried an earlier version of the client in Windows, haven't tried compiling the linux client yet.

Here's a rough attempt that you could use as a guide.

http://leigh123linux.fedorapeople.org/pub/srpm/nicotine+-1.2.10-1.fc11.src.rpm

Ah! I beg your pardon and thank you, leigh123linux. You know I'm a complete novice when it comes to building rpm packages, never mind making patches and the like for them, so I must learn how to do it properly. But since your .src.rpm has "fc11" in the name, would it be wiser for me to build it from within F11, or am I okay in F10? Either way, F11 will have landed before I'll have sufficient time to do this (unless it is a case of a single command, of course) since I must revise for a impending exam, so I may be over on F11 before too long anyway.

Folks, despite having done next to nothing I feel like I've achieved something here! My first rpm is sitting comfortably in "~/rpmbuild/RPMS/i386", and has successfully been installed, with nicotine+ running beautifully and downloading with as much vigour as ever!

As far as I can see the package is ready for submission, so I think your link (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers) will be the next port of call, Rahul. However, I can't take credit for this! Leigh was the person who wrote the patch and (I think) the SPEC file, and you, Rahul, gave me these commands to copy and paste.

Anyway, I've fallen in love with yum-builddep, and am ready for more! A "devel" user is next on the cards, and maybe I should stick around on F10 so I can maintain this package for the retro ones amongst us.

One thing I'd really like to see is a set of Fedora packages for GNUstep (http://www.gnustep.org/). Other distros (e.g. Debian, Suse, Arch, Slackware) have GNUstep packages, I've always wondered why Fedora doesn't. Just having packages for the core components (gnustep-make, gnustep-base, gnustep-gui, gnustep-backend) would be great. Almost all of the requirements (http://wwwmain.gnustep.org/resources/downloads.php?site=ftp%3A%2F%2Fftp.gnustep.org%2Fp ub%2Fgnustep%2F#pre) already come with Fedora.

Do you want to test the rpm?

I only have a Fedora 11 64-bit system to install qingy-0.9.9-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm on, so here's what happened there:

First attempt failed due to a dependency on libcrypto.so.7 (64-bit). I found libcrypto.so.0.9.8k already installed, provided by openssl. So I installed the qingy rpm with --nodeps and made a link for libcrypto.so.7.

After that it was straightforward (with your pam.d/qingy changes which I would never have figured out). Here's what I did to get qingy running:

1) dependencies:
directfb-1.2.7-4.fc11.x86_64.rpm
libsysfs-2.1.0-5.fc11.x86_64.rpm
libvncserver-0.9.1-4.fc11.x86_64.rpm
lzo-minilzo-2.03-2.fc11.x86_64.rpm
openssl-0.9.8k-1.fc11.x86_64.rpm (I think this might be installed by default?)

2) as root, cd to /usr/lib64 and create a link: ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.8k libcrypto.so.7

3) from info qingy: "configure DirectFB for your frame-buffer device: run `fbset'
and paste the output as the first entry in `/etc/fb.modes'."

4) in /etc/inittab line 26 change id:5:initdefault: to id:3:initdefault:

5) in /etc/event.d/tty[1-5] change /sbin/mingetty to /usr/sbin/qingy
note that this leaves a mingetty running in tty6 at the suggestion of the author
in case something goes wrong with qingy.

6) in /etc/pam.d/qingy, comment out the original contents with a # before each line
and add the following lines:
auth required pam_securetty.so
auth include system-auth
auth required pam_nologin.so
account include system-auth
password include system-auth
session include system-auth
session optional pam_console.so

Qingy ran fine on the first reboot after that.

The only problem I have is that the qingy screensaver does not run except on the qingy fb login screen - once I've logged in the screensaver does not run. I am trying to fix this.

Thanks for the rpm. Is there anything else I can do?

Hello Leigh-

Your new rpm for qingy installs flawlessly and is running fine on F11_64 (Gnome). Nice work - thank you.

I've wanted an interesting login screen for Fedora and the qingy theme framework is quite flexible and powerful, so now I will spend a lot of time writing themes that are only onscreen for a few seconds...:rolleyes:

ttf2eot

http://code.google.com/p/ttf2eot/

Finally, with the release of Firefox 3.5, the latest versions of all major Web browsers support font embedding. Unfortunately though, Internet Explorer only supports .eot (Embedded OpenType) fonts, not .otf (OpenType) or .ttf (TrueType). For this reason, it is necessary to convert from the TrueType/OpenType fonts to Embedded OpenType for Internet Explorer. Of course, none of the other browsers support Embedded OpenType, so you have to use any of various workarounds.

F12? What's to do?

The build at Koji is my first test build (it will be automatically deleted in seven days).


https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=556289


The package has to go though a review process before it's included in the repo's


http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/NewPackageProcess


Step 6. wait for another fedora packager to approve it :cool:

This is required for updated Gwibber 2.29.1 microblogging client I believe.

Also, Plone 4 project is coming along, with Zope 2.12 - this will support Python 2.6

Might be nice if this could eventually replace the compat- packages. But I get the impression the Plone community is moving towards universal installer packages, so might not require a Fedora specific RPM.

Keepnote. There is already a rpm-package on the website: http://rasm.ods.org/keepnote/index.shtml#download. But it won't install since rpm gives the missing-dependency error due to it uses python=2.5. But I have been in contact with the creator of keepnote and he says that :"KeepNote only requires>=python-2.5 <python-3.0,". He proposes that someone with more knowledge in rpm maintains the package.

There is a package for Mandriva here: http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/13411160/dir/mandriva_2010/com/keepnote-0.6.1-1mdv2010.0.i586.rpm.html

FreeMat, FreeCAD, GnoMenu, SAGE, Scilab

It is a real pitty that the last two aren't packaged, yet. I would definitely give them priority (esp. since openSUSE provides Scilab ^^) I noticed that the first two were crossed out in the wishlist (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/WishList). Why is that? Wouldn't both be very useful if provided? Should I add them to the RPMFusion wishlist? Also: Why is there no GnoMenu in the repositories? Could anybody please add it to the Wishlist if he/she thinks the same way? Thanks.

RahulSundaram
22nd July 2010, 08:23 PM
Hi,

If something is not packaged, it is because noone volunteered yet or there is/was a licensing/legal problem with the software. If you want to add something to the Fedora wiki, get a Fedora account, login and edit the page yourself. Thanks

Shunyata
22nd July 2010, 08:39 PM
As banal as it is: I have a Fedora account, but I can't, because in order to accept the license I have to provide a correct phone number, which I am unable to. Since I am required to verify that the data is correct in the contract, Redhat just lost a computer scientist willing to contribute. Besides: I'm much better at microbiology & developing software architectures anyway. And I'm certainly not the only Fedora user who wants GnoMenu in the repo. SAGE and Scilab are being worked on (cmp. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/SciTech/SAGE & http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/SciTech/Scilab), just too slow (despite of both being available in other distributions). The other two were in the Fedora wishlist, but are stroked through. Any idea why? I see no obvious forbidden property. TIA

RahulSundaram
22nd July 2010, 08:44 PM
Hi,

A phone number can be supplied and the account info can be marked as private so that others cannot see it. I don't know why it is striked by it probably had licensing issues in the past. I vaguely remember that. Fedora account system isn't connected to Red Hat.

Thanks, but I already knew how to install it and even the read the thread while I searched for it. There are obviously even attempts to package it already (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=515164). The problem is that if I install this stuff from hand I have to do it again for every single update. This is not convenient for one program and impossible for several. Especially if they are more complex. I could live without the others, but Antivir, FreeCAD, Gnomenu, SAGE & Scilab are really essential.

Btw: Since I talked with several guys about this topic over the last days - Here are the packages (most on the wishlists) which were requested most often:

Actually, many are, even more on Debian and openSUSE, but I don't get your point. Many of those are important for scientific work: math apps (Axiom, SAGE, Scilab), developer tools (CUDA, D compilers (LDC, DMD), JavaFX, Moonlight, SmartGit) & CAD editors (BlenderCAD, FreeCAD). Skype is used by many university chairs, alien saves a lot of work and on demand scanning for viruses is a good idea these days, also to save other systems.

No offense, but my point was that if you are unhappy with a distribution's package selection you should look into one that has what you need.

Fedora claims to be "free" although it does have some 'non-free' aspects, but on the surface it is fairly free. Having said that., Moonlight (mono), Java, will definitely not be going into the repo's.

Have you checked out RPM Fusion repository? Most of non-free packages are in there, just take a look.

If you have packaging skills you can easily get in contact with RPM Fusion guys and make packages for software that you can't find there already.

My vote first of all goes for DeadBeeF, a media player which despite idiotic name picked by its developer is the most promising audio player available in Linux in a very long time.

http://deadbeef.sourceforge.net/

RPM packages for it have been recently prepared by some willing volunteers but the program in my opinion absolutely merits inclusion in one of the standard Fedora repositories.

It superficially reminds foobar2000, one of the two best (and free) audio players on Windows, the other one having been AIMP2 -- that has been my player of choice in the last two-three years. AIMP2 by the way is a model of what a competent and willing developer can produce: in this case a *highly attractive* and *remarkably functional* free application.

Some screenshots here:

http://www.snapfiles.com/screenshots/aimp.htm

and the recently updated main site (in Russian) here:

http://www.aimp.ru/index.php

All the media players for Linux in comparison suffer from either serious limitations that their developers continue for years to gleefully and disdainfully ignore, or from unattractive aand often dysfunctional interfaces, and in most cases from both.

I just wish that AIMP2 one day gets ported to Linux. That would be really great.

I would love to see a default CD burning application for gnome that actually works! For the past several releases of Fedora, I have been forced to toss out brasero and use other applications to burn CD's/DVD's with.

It's really sad when the default burning application in gnome has been broken for so long. Really paints a good picture for new linux users, too.

and jgribbin, there are working rpm's for cinelerra in the atrpms repo. install autoten and it will install cinelerra for you. autoten is a nice little application written by dangermouse that installs a lot of nice things in fedora for you. I use it on just about every new fedora install I do :D

Brasero issues are more of a concern to Upstream rather than Fedora themselves, report the Bugs to them , im sure we'd like everything to " just work " but this is Linux ( opensource ) name me other distro's where Brasero works

true. brasero is an upstream problem and not a fedora problem. and I guess fedora really can't replace parts of gnome.

But still. I'm not looking for a default burning app that is anything fancy. just one that works. lol

These seem (these being totem as well, another app that, when someone says it's giving them trouble, the usual advice is remove it and replace it with VLC) to be at least partially Gnome issues, and possibly (this is a guess--I have NO idea if this is the case) the fact that VLC, at least usually uses some proprietary codecs--the same might be true for the other DVD burning apps you mention.

Fortunately, they're all pretty easy to replace. I put my guesses above, but remember, they're just guesses. Not using Gnome, and burning DVDs from command line (as well as using mplayer for music and movies), I don't run into it save when I set up Ubuntu for my wife--when I quckly replaced totem with VLC.

I would love to see a default CD burning application for gnome that actually works! For the past several releases of Fedora, I have been forced to toss out brasero and use other applications to burn CD's/DVD's with.

It's really sad when the default burning application in gnome has been broken for so long. Really paints a good picture for new linux users, too.

and jgribbin, there are working rpm's for cinelerra in the atrpms repo. install autoten and it will install cinelerra for you. autoten is a nice little application written by dangermouse that installs a lot of nice things in fedora for you. I use it on just about every new fedora install I do :D

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=171660

The RPM from ATRPMs does not install for me. I believe it an issue w/ incompatible repos. I already have RPMs from RPMFusion & Kwizart, and the are some known compatibility issues mixing them and ATRPMS &, i believe, FreshRPMs.

What's your issue w/ Brasero? I use it all the time.

my issue with brasero is the same as numerous others on here. It doesn't work. gets an error on every CD/DVD it tries to burn, and I end up with a coaster.

and the atrpms repo does have some incompatibilities so you wouldn't want to leave it enabled all the time, but I use fedora and rpmfusion, and was able to install cinelerra from atrpms without a problem.

But then again, I used dangermouse's autoten program to install it, and it downloaded and installed the packages for me. I would have to look at the script to see what it pulls out of the repo.

I had never heard of autoten. Seems to work OK for the most part. Seems to be a script setup. It's not 100% though.

It won't uninstall AdobeAir. It detected SUDO as not installed, but it was. Cinellera installed after I got rid of a different package that caused a conflict.

Still don't understand the problems you're having w/ Brasero. I do have problems w/ some brands of media in certain drives. For instance: W/ Memorex cd-rs in the drive on this laptop I'm on at the moment. With Memorex, if I leave Brasero set to the default of "maximum speed", I get all coasters. If I set it to "8x", 3 out of 4 are good. If I use Verbatim, all are good. I have an "Office Depot" cd-r disc that won't even show up, gives me "Illegal Request" errors. I consider these "media compatibility" issues, not software issues.

On the other hand, I have a couple of external dvd-r drives that seem to be happy w/ any media I throw at them.

I packaged these

http://www.fuduntu.org/fuduntu/14/STABLE/SRPMS/photofilmstrip-1.4.0-1.src.rpm

If someone wants to send them upstream. The spec for the source RPM needs work to fix language support for languages other than English.

I could send them up myself, but it'll be a few weeks before I can get to it.

Thank you for packaging these. I tried getting PhotoFilmstrip directly, but couldn't get it to run. Your package installed smoothly and runs, but it still has a limitation in the amount of photos that can be used to make a slideshow. If too many are opened, it will shut itself down. IIRC, the limit was 200 photos. I tried to make a show with 205, and it fails. I have a bug report open on Sourceforge, but I have not seen that anything has been done since I first filed it against Fedora 12.

Actually, this may have become a moot point. I recently discovered Imagination in the repositories. It does much the same thing and does not crash when I try to load large numbers of slides. It also has a large number of transitions whereas PhotoFilmstrip seems to be limited to two.. However, it looks like PhotoFilmstrip may have more options for quality of rendered video output, up to full HD video whereas Imagination has no option to specify quality..

I saw a request for this massively up-thread (and chronologically a couple years ago) but I could also really use having Celtx (www.celtx.com) in the repos somewhere, if possible. I didn't see a response to the previous request (did I overlook it?) and I would love to see it added, or at least gently encourage the celtx folks to maintain a repo. I mean, after all, if they're going to bother to write the thing in the first place...

I've tried to manually install it, but I mean there's like absolutely *no* GUI integration, and I simply don't understand why that is, since this *is* a GUI app.

Of course, for that matter, one could also rightly ask the question "Why don't they make a proper RPM and/or DEB installer for it?

Anyhow...

The last working version was with Fedora13, the repository shows the final version as that produced for Fedora 12

It would be great to have in working in Fedora14, and also Fedora 15

Hi

This thread is only about completely new software that doesn't exist in the repository. For other issues, open a new thread. However I have build the new version for Rawhide and Fedora 15. Fedora 14 - I am not pushing since I can't test it now.

A good serial terminal. I have tried using GTKTerm, CuteCom, Minicom, Moserial, & Hotwire Shell.. I have been trying to connect thru U.S.B. to an 86hc11 with Bison 3.4 (I think .4?) I cannot send a file successfully with GTKTerm. I cannot connect to U.S.B. with CuteCom. Minicom isn't a G.U.I. Moserial doesn't automatically detect settings like GTKTerm does. I have had no success with Hotwire Shell.
On a whole, from what I have found, there is not as good a serial terminal on G.N.U./Linux as there is for Microsoft's Operating System. RealTerm and Teraterm both seem better.
Also, the G.N.U. utilities for Assembly for this architecture is not available in the repositories and is offered solely as 32-bits on the G.N.U. website.

Yes, that is definitely something that should be in the Fedora repos. Converting Debian packages to RPM format is a very handy ability to have, and the only RPMs that I could find for alien are ancient versions.

Namecoin is a domain name system based on Bitcoin. It extends Bitcoin to add transactions for registering, updating and transferring names. The idea behind this is to provide an alternative to the existing DNS system where names can be taken from their owners by groups that control the DNS servers.
