Best place for PPC rpm's?

Best place for PPC rpm's?

Post by Bill Hayde » Thu, 22 Apr 1999 04:00:00



This is probably a FAQ, but since I didn't find a FAQ...

Where is the best place to get PowerPC binary rpm's?  Way back in the
dark ages, I used the MkArchive.  It's still up, but doesn't appear to
have been updated in months (years?).  Specifically, I would like to get
KDE 1.1, Gnome, Netscape (post-4.05), and anthing else useful.  Surely
there must be a place to get these rpm's for LinuxPPC...

(Please CC to e-mail if you post)

TIA,
Bill

Go to the ftp.linuxppc.org site. (LinuxPPC binaries are the same as
MkLinux.) Look in the various releases as well as the /users/gdt directory.

I've posted stuff I've built at

http://rufus.w3.org/linux/RPM/rhcn/ppc/
and/or
http://ftp.linuxppc.org/RPMS/

there are more RPM sites out there, these are the ones I use.

For Window managers, just in case you don't have it.
http://www.plig.org/xwinman/

know   Gnome?  ftp://bacon.ne.mediaone.net/pub/redhat/RPMS/ppc/

Hope this helps

1. Best place to place shell scripts for all users to have access

The subject line just about says it all really. Is there a standard
directory for shell scripts?

Also if I call script B from script A where both use the same shell,
that is the first line is something like:

#! /bin/bash

Does script B load a new shell or does it recognise that the required
shell is currently active?
