Quick Start for FC4 or FC5

of Kiss Coda Wiki

probably of no use any longer but kept for reference


You have a non-root user with which to build the RPM packages. The coda kernel module should already be included in all recent kernels.

If you’d prefer to work from CVS, look here: http://www.coda.cs.cmu.edu/rt/Ticket/Display.html?id=1529


The basic plan follows:

We assume you have a ~/.rpmmacros file. If not, create one with contents like the following:

    %packager First Last (username@example.com)
    %_topdir /home/username/rpm

We also assume you have a place for RPM files to be processed. If not, create them, thusly:

    mkdir $HOME/rpm
    mkdir $HOME/rpm/BUILD
    mkdir $HOME/rpm/SOURCES
    mkdir $HOME/rpm/SPECS
    mkdir $HOME/rpm/SRPMS
    mkdir $HOME/rpm/RPMS
    mkdir $HOME/rpm/RPMS/i386

Build the Coda client


    rpm -ivh coda-debug-6.0.14-1.src.rpm lwp-2.1-1.src.rpm rpc2-1.28-1.src.rpm rvm-1.11-1.src.rpm
    cd ~/rpm
    patch -p1 < coda-fedora.patch


    cd ~/rpm/SPECS
    rpmbuild -ba lwp.spec

Install and initialize the Coda client

(replacing example.org with your Coda domain, of course!)
