Synopsis

This git repository contains all the packaging and patches required to build Rudder packages, in debian and RPM format.

Usage

The easiest way to test and use Rudder is to install it from the provided Linux packages, see: https://www.rudder-project.org/site/get-rudder/downloads/

You can also build these packages yourself. There as detailed build instructions for Rudder agent in the manual: https://www.rudder-project.org/doc-4.1/_building_the_rudder_agent.html

Each directory in this git repository contains the packaging for one package, including the following

directories
  • BUILD - contains temporary files during RPM builds

  • debian - is the main debian packaging directory as found in all debian packages

  • RPMS - contains binary RPMs after they are built

  • SOURCES - contains patches or original sources to package, and is used to download any other necessary sources

  • SPECS - contains RPM spec files

  • SRPMS - contains source RPMs after they are built

Before building any packages, make sure you download the required source files, by entering the SOURCES directory and running make:

$ cd <package name>/SOURCES && make
Important
RUDDER_VERSION_TO_PACKAGE is not defined by default. You have to replace "<put branch or tag name here>" by a branch or a tag name.
