[Michael T. Babcock] RPMs I've Packaged

RPM Packaged Software

I repackage programs from time to time for my own use with either some minor patches or different optimisations. This is where you can download them if you'd like to try them yourself. If you use these or appreciate this or have other packages that you think I'd be interested in building as RPMs, please contact me by E-mail.

Please note: I make no guarantees about these files working at all or even not containing trojans or viruses or nasty code that deletes your hard drive. I do use these myself on my computer -- that's the only reason I've packaged them. If you trust me, you may be able to trust these files.


I optimize my packages for my Athlon-XP machine at home, and compile all packages with GCC version 3.4.2 which I staged myself from source. I use a Fedora Core 2 machine that has been upgraded from Red Hat 9, previously 7.3, 7.2 and before that, 6.something. Feel free to take a look.

For those who wish to know, I use "-O3 -march=pentium -mtune=athlon-xp -funit-at-a-time" for both CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS.


A quick note on sources is in order; since I make binary packages of (usually) GPL'd software available here, I also need to make sure you (the downloader) are able to get the sources "freely". The URL I originally downloaded the source package from is always included in the RPM itself. If you cannot get the source from that location anymore, I will either make it available here or locate the current sources elsewhere for you.


Package:Esound Version:0.2.35
EsounD, the Enlightened Sound Daemon, is a server process that mixes several audio streams for playback by a single audio device. For example, if you're listening to music on a CD and you receive a sound-related event from ICQ, the two applications won't have to queue for the use of your sound card. Install esound if you'd like to let sound applications share your audio device. You'll also need to install the audiofile package.
Packages: 0.2.35-1.mtb.2 (and devel)

Package:Cadaver Version:0.22.2
Cadaver is a command-line WebDAV client. It supports file upload, download, on-screen display, namespace operations (move/copy), collection creation and deletion, and locking operations.
Packages: 0.22.2-1.mtb.2

Package:uuid Version:1.0.4
OSSP uuid is a ISO-C application programming interface (API) and corresponding command line interface (CLI) for the generation of DCE 1.1 and ISO/IEC 11578:1996 compliant Universally Unique Identifiers (UUID). It supports DCE 1.1 variant UUIDs of version 1 (time and node based), version 3 (name based) and version 4 (random number based).
Packages: 1.0.4-1.mtb.1 (and devel)
The devel package includes both /usr/lib/libuuid.so and /usr/lib/libuuid.a which for some reason are distributed by e2fsprogs-devel. I don't know if these are equivalent or not but I had to remove e2fsprogs-devel, krb5-devel, openssl-devel, curl-devel, cups-devel, pwlib-devel, and openh323-devel to install this libuuid-devel. If you know anything about these issues and want to fix it or talk to me about it, please E-mail me about it.
Also note, this UUID package is not usable with reiserfstools since the latter seems to assume libuuid version < 0.9.4. I'm working on patching it to work.

Using YUM

If you're using yum to manage your updates, you can add my RPMs to your list by adding the following lines to your yum.conf file:

name=Fedora $releasever Extras (MtB)


All binary packages I release are signed with my GnuPG key 0xE4E9A210 which is also available from the MIT keyserver or keyserver.net. This key is reserved for signing packages I build and is signed by my primary key.

If you'd like to assert my identity and have a key exchange, just E-mail me and I'll see what we can arrange.
