browse builds

I tend to create packages for stuff I use, and try to submit them to online repositories so they get maintained. Here you'll find all of the ones I make public, so you can browse them or add them to your package source lists.

You can use yum to automatically get packages from these repositories.

RPM's in the standard Red Hat repositories are created using mach, a tool that builds RPM's in a chroot environment. This means we can ensure good quality and make sure the packages work well with that distribution.

If you're lucky, you can just install the tao-release rpm for:

Packages I build are signed with my GPG key. If you decide to trust me, this is my public key, and this is my fingerprint.

If you are worried about security, you should check the validity of these before importing the public key into your package database.

Get key and fingerprint from website:

wget http://thomas.apestaart.org/pkg/thomas.pubkey
wget http://thomas.apestaart.org/pkg/thomas.fingerprint
Verify that the fingerprint matches the pubkey:
gpg --with-fingerprint thomas.pubkey | head -n 3 | diff - thomas.fingerprint
Get the public key from a keyserver and verify that the online fingerprint matches the one downloaded:
gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 55f3aa6f
gpg --list-keys | grep Stichele
gpg --fingerprint 55f3aa6f | head -n 3 > thomas.fingerprint.tmp
diff thomas.fingerprint.tmp thomas.fingerprint
Now that you verified the validity of thomas.pubkey, you can import it in your rpm database using
rpm --import thomas.pubkey
