Hello, Fedora!

by with 1 comment

Hello everyone! After fighting with KVM, Fedora Core 10, namely bug
#475598, spots
where RPM’s macro behavior doesn’t *quite* match the RPM guide, a
miscompiling GCC, and a mis-named libssl in a pear tree, we have some
hot fresh RPMs that you can use, if you like.

You can direct download FC10 RPMs of our current SpiderOak release for
32-bit and 64-bit PCs at:

While we have performed some basic testing on these, it is my no means
the sort of complete test we’ve usually done, so there may be some rough
edges. For the security-conscious, we sign these rpms with this public key:

Which is also available, for your convenience at

http://apt.spideroak.com/spideroak-rpm-pubkey.asc

For YUM users, this package installs and owns its own yum repository
reference, that lives at /etc/yum.repos.d/spideroak.repo. This will
allow you to more easily get updated SpiderOak packages, signed with the
above key as they become available.

Enjoy!

  1. Hey, thanks for thinking of Fedora users, much appreciated.

    However, there are a couple of problems with your current Fedora support:
    1) the only download you provide for Fedora is an RPM built for Fedora 10; this means that the openssl-devel dependency is broken (Fedora 11 uses openssl-devel v0.9.8k, while Fedora 10 uses v0.9.8g, so the libssl library links have changed from libssl.so.7 to libssl.so.8).

    2) The provided RPM (SpiderOak-9540-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm) is broken …
    multiple download attempts result in a file that fails to unpack:

    error: unpacking of archive failed on file
    /usr/lib/SpiderOak/libQtGui.so.4;4aaed545: cpio: read failed – Invalid
    argument

    Would you consider rebuilding the RPM for Fedora 11 and providing it as a download somewhere? Note that you may need to update your apt/yum repository accordingly for fedora 11, and also update the spideroaks.repo file.

    Thanks!
