I like runit. A lot. I also like Redhat. A lot. What I didn't like was the lack of widely distributed RPMs for runit. Scott Likens made an RPM for version 2.0, so I thought I'd be a pal and take his RPM, update it to 2.1.1 and put it on Github for everyone to fork/clone/make fun of.
So, thanks to Scott for the RPMs and thanks to SuSE for the original spec/RPMs
- Clone the repo
cd $RPMBUILD_DIR(On RHEL <= 5 this will be
/usr/src/redhat, anything later will be
cd $RPMBUILD_DIR/SPECS; rpmbuild -bb runit.spec
- Install the RPM
