    Lightbulb Compiz-Fusion YUM repository

    Its there and theres no RPMs for it .. and some stuff i dont like to
    wait .. So, I decided to package them myself

    to those who don't know, Compiz-Fusion is the name of the compiz-beryl merge.

    Fedora Compiz-Fusion unofficial YUM repository

    I've put together a howto on installing from the repository here
    http://blog.kagesenshi.org/2007/06/c...-fedora-7.html

    on the packager side,
    - I have made sure that all of the packages able to build properly on mock
    - specfiles are derived from compiz and beryl specfiles
    - some naming and descriptions are taken from trevino ubuntu compiz repo
    - desktop-effects menu are disabled for now
    - the compiz packages obsoletes F7 compiz ..

    Enjoy~

    Edit
    The repository is now moved to

    http://devel.foss.org.my/~kagesenshi/repo/pub/

    new configuration is at http://devel.foss.org.my/~kagesenshi...agesenshi.repo

    Would you consider making an FC6 version, or do you think this would work in FC6? I ask because the only computer I have that's good enough to do Beryl is still running FC6, and I'm not planning to upgrade real soon (I might just wait 'til I get a better computer).
    Something new coming to this space soon...

    you can try rebuilding the srpms ..

    I dont have neither any F6 installations in my computer and I removed my F6 fedora repo mirror a few weeks ago .. rebuilding the packages on mock gonna cost me a lot of bandwidth and time trying to get dependencies installed .. I'm so sorry I couldnt do it for u

    you can try these steps to rebuild the src.rpm ..
    Code:
    # run these as root
    yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
    yum install fedora-rpmdevtools
    
    # run these as normal user
    fedora-buildrpmtree
    echo '%define dist fc6' >> ~/.rpmmacros
    
    ## Download the src.rpm from my repository http://repo.kagesenshi.org/pub/
    ## for each packages, do
    rpmbuild --rebuild filename.src.rpm
    
    ## recommended sequence to build - 
    ## compiz-core -> compiz-bcop -> compiz-fusion-plugins-main ->
    ## libcompizconfig -> compizconfig-python -> compizconfig-settings-manager
    ## emerald -> emerald-themes
    if it doesnt work, you might need to tweak a little bit the specfile .. google for creating rpm spec for more info ..

    Thanks a lot, I'll give that a try when I have some time for it. And thanks for making this repo, as I'm sure it'll make lots of F7 users happy (including me when I eventually upgrade, if they haven't added it officially by then).

    Could you please define issues? Last time I played with desktop effects software I ended up with a completely non-functional desktop.

    Thank you, I'm rebuilding these for x86_64 and not sure if you want me to upload these to you or not, but one correction so far so it will build on both arch's

    On compizconfig-python.spec

    Change python_sitelib to python_sitearch

    Code:
    %files
    %defattr(-,root,root,-)
    %{python_sitearch}/compizconfig.so

    This is very cool, I'm rebuilding your RPMs now
    BTW you're missing a buildrequires on compiz-core, it needs 'dbus-devel' and 'dbus-qt-devel'
    edit: and also /usr/bin/kde-window-decorator is installed but unpackaged...

    I just noticed the baseurl in the .repo pointed to the wrong place

    fixed .. it should work now

    @Firewing1

    I tried compiling fot 64 bit and manage to get as far as libcompizconfig before I ran into a dependency ( compiz ) problems ( I had all the required devels and compiz packages installed

    what package provides compiz-libs ?

    @ leigh123
    can u paste the error??

    @ Firewing1
    i found the cause of that error .. you have the KDE devel stuff in ur box and compiz tried to build KDE support into it too .. the configure script mostly auto determine what to build depending on what devel packages u have (which kindof annoying to me) .. I'm currently working on packaging the KDE bits ...

    read post #7 by jlc .. the fix is there ..

    how to edit it?
    Code:
    rpm -ivh compizconfig-python-0.0.1-20070622git.fc7.src.rpm 
    vi ~/rpmbuild/SPEC/compizconfig-python.spec
    find that line and correct it ..

    i'll fix that in my specs in the next release .. less than a day from now (hopefully)
