node.js RPM spec

Building the RPM

Distro support

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

  • RHEL/CentOS/SL/OL 6 x86_64
  • RHEL/CentOS/SL/OL 5 x86_64
  • Fedora 19 x86_64
  • This spec is tested under el6 and el5 only. However, Fedora15 or later work. maybe.

RHEL/CentOS/SL/OL 6

$ sudo yum install -y rpm-build rpmdevtools openssl-devel zlib-devel redhat-rpm-config gcc gcc-c++ make libstdc++-devel
$ rpmdev-setuptree

$ cd /path/to/nodejs-rpm # git dir
$ ./build.sh
$ cd ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/
$ sudo yum install ./nodejs-X.X.X-X.el6.x86_64.rpm ./nodejs-npm-X.X.X-X.el6.x86_64.rpm --nogpgcheck

RHEL/CentOS/SL/OL 5

when you try to build on el5, must enable the EPEL repository.

$ sudo rpm -ivh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
$ sudo yum install -y rpm-build rpmdevtools openssl-devel zlib-devel python26 gcc gcc-c++ make libstdc++-devel
$ mkdir ~/rpmbuild
$ cd ~/rpmbuild
$ rpmdev-setuptree

$ cd /path/to/nodejs-rpm # git dir
$ ./build.sh
$ cd ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/
$ sudo yum install ./nodejs-X.X.X-X.x86_64.rpm ./nodejs-npm-X.X.X-X.x86_64.rpm --nogpgcheck
