I’m running Rocky Linux 8 on nearly all my servers, and I’m currently migrating my desktop clients to it. There are a few packages missing that I can’t find in any third-party repository such as EPEL or RPMFusion, so I installed
rpm-build and built them locally. So far so good.
If I remember correctly, the last time I setup my own package repository was shortly after CentOS 5.0 was released. Unfortunately I have lost the documentation I wrote at the time. I vaguely remember there was a nifty tool to create all the metadata from a local RPM package collection. Yeah, and I also forgot how to sign my own RPM packages with my GPG key.
Before I dive back in, do you have any pointers to some well-written documentation/tutorial about the subject?
