Tested working (as sane as I could test for) on:

  • RHEL/CentOS 7 x86_64
  • RHEL/CentOS/SL/OL 6 x86_64
  • RHEL/CentOS/SL/OL 5 x86_64
  • Fedora 19 x86_64
    • This spec is tested under el7, el6 and el5 only.
    • However, Fedora15 or later work. maybe.
    • when you try to build on el5, must enable the EPEL repository.

setting up:

$ sudo yum install -y yum-utils rpmdevtools make

git clone and make:

$ git clone
