Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask this.
Is there a location to upload paid for RPM for distrubution, ie a store for CentOS?
Is there a discription of how to create your own RPM repository for distrubution?
What about updates of these RPM?
Not that I’m aware of.
This could be documented a little better… You should create a GPG key for rpm signing:
After building rpm packages, use “rpm –addsign” to sign them.
A yum repository is simply a web-accessible directory, typically with a
“packages” and a “source” sub-directory. Move your signed packages there, and then run “createrepo_c /path/to/dir”. createrepo_c is a faster version of the createrepo tool, which does the same thing.
The first package you want to build is probably a “release” package for your repository:
You can also sign your repo metadata:
You can put updates in the same repo, or a separate repo, whichever you prefer. Just copy them and run “createrepo_c” again. When clients run an “update” they’ll refresh their repo information and update to newer packages.
