Installed noarch rpm isn't working from CUI or GUI


Hi,

I generated noarch rpm using alien for rapidsvn tar.gz file. After generating and installation of the rapidsvn rpm it isn't working for CUI or GUI. When I checked for rpm installation status using 'rpm -qa' it is showing as the rpm is installed. But no output of the installation.

Help any one...

Thank you
Manyam

Hi, you could try to see if any deps or libs are missing, with

rpm -Va | grep miss

http://www.rapidsvn.org/download/release/0.12/
> > rapidsvn-0.12.0-1.tar.gz
This is source code, and using # alien -r : Still source code.

Installing rapidsvn :
Fedora : # yum install rapidsvn
RH EL X.x, rpmforge.repo : # yum install rapidsvn
Suse : # zypper in rapidsvn
.....

Hi, those are firefox tango theme files. They're not related.

But the command worked and now you know another way to check.

Did you install the dependencies before you installed rapidsvn?

ref. http://rapidsvn.tigris.org/

Dependencies

RapidSVN depends on a couple of frameworks. So if you want to compile RapidSVN you have to download, configure and compile these frameworks first (unless you have access to a precompiled binary package with development files like headers and libraries included).

* Subversion 1.3 or higher download (Subversion 1.6.5 is the official release we work with)
* wxWidgets 2.6.2 or higher download
But I guess the rpm tool you used to build the rpm from source should have checked for deps. You don't mention above if in fact this is what occurred.

Hi Glenn,

The thing is, I have rapdisvn's tar.gz file. I have to install this tar file in 20 client systems to access my SVN server. To make it practice of creating rpm, am trying to create an rpm from the tar.gz file. When I worked about it, the rpm is generated with "noarch", for example-rapidsvn.x.xx.x-noarch.rpm. Issue is when am installing it, it is appearing as the rpm installed successfully. But it isn't working. I'm asking about how to create rpm to work with my Suse10.3 and I even tried with rpmbuild. No use.

Thank you

Hi,

could you please specify if you really compiled the software? Or did you only download the tar.gz file? It seems you created an rpm containing source files. Where did you get this tar.gz file? For rpmbuild a spec file is required to work.

Could you please post command output to understand what you exactly did?
