CentOS 5 RPMs

Anyone aware of RPMs for RT? Specifically for CentOS 5 and hopefully
for the latest (or nearly so) version of RT?

I’ve tried a few searches (Google and yum) but not having any luck. The
stuff on the wiki is for CentOS 4 and uses MySQL (and probably a local
database.)

I may end up hacking the src RPM to see if I can get it to build for C5.

Package Managers make bus insurance (in North Idaho its logging truck
insurance) easier to put in place. :slight_smile:

EPEL has rpms for RHEL5, but for the older stable 3.6.x version:

If you want the latest 3.8.x version and don’t mind rebuilding and
possibly hacking src rpms, then you can try the ones from fedora:

Thanks Jason. I’ll probably end up doing that. Right now I’m fighting
a version issue with Encode from rpmforge and the CentOS 5 Perl 5.8.8
package.

Maybe doing the RT RPM will fix the other.

I found this a couple of days ago but set it aside since it was using
MySQL. Looking at it again I see it covers a remote database and I can
just modify the steps to work for PostgreSQL.

Thanks for reminder.
