Steam on Fedora 20

steamI’ve updated the Steam repository with Fedora 20 packages and removed Fedora 17 bits from the SPEC files since it has now gone EOL.

Fedora 19 and up now have SDL 2 in the main repositories; though the Steam client it’s shipping it’s own library that cannot be deleted or it will get downloaded again upon the client startup.

No more secondary architectures

I was notified I can not use Fedora Koji builders for doing personal builds of Fedora forbidden items. This means I have to drop the following architectures from the repositories:

  • CentOS/RHEL 5 – ppc
  • CentOS/RHEL 5 – ppc64
  • Fedora 20 – armv7hl

I don’t have any hardware (or access) to any system like those; so my only chance is to drop support for them. All those architectures are bound to disappear from the repositories with the next round of updates.

CDRtools repository updated

New version 3.01a17 has been released. Starting from this version packages are built with all architectures enabled; this means that Fedora 20 has inherited armv7hl support and CentOS/RHEL 6 and CentOS/RHEL 5 have now respectively ppc64 and ppc support.

Along with the update, all Fedora 17 packages have been removed now that the distribution has gone EOL.

ARM builds available for Nvidia driver

Nvidia repository has finally received the armv7hl builds and patches for kernel 3.10. I’ve added a new table that depicts the supported functionalities by distribution.

First repositories online!

Welcome to my new WordPress almost-default site!

Most of the repositories are now online, the nvidia-driver repository still needs to be published but it’s a starting point! Thjs website was born to host problematic/proprietary softwre that are forbidden in Fedora.

For now, cdrtools, HandBrake, Steam and the Flash plugin repositories have moved from fedorapeople.org to here. New things are on the way as time permits.

The chocolate brown Lamborghini is not mine, of course.
