Try Jockey on Fedora and Parsidora 15!


As I mentioned in the previous post, I was porting Jockey to Fedora. The work is almost finished now and ready for public testing. It would be great if you can try it and let me know about the results. :)

For testing, you can either try Parsidora 15 Release candidate version, which will be available in a few hours (less than 4 hours) from parsidora sourceforge area, or add the following repository to your Fedora 15 (put the following distinguished text inside a parsidora.repo file inside /etc/yum.repos.d/):

[parsidora]
name=Parsidora 15 – $basearch
baseurl=http://parsidora.sourceforge.net/releases/15/repos/parsidora/$basearch
enabled=1
metadata_expire=7d
gpgcheck=0

Then, install:

yum install jockey-selinux jockey-gtk

for the GTK interface or:

yum install jockey-selinux jockey-kde

for the KDE interface. You can omit jockey-selinux if you have disabled selinux on your system. Notice that RPMFusion repositories should be enabled to use this software.

Have fun! :)

Update: Packages for Fedora/Parsidora 16 are also available. All you need to do is to replace “15” in the above URL with “16”. or use “$releasever” so that it’ll be replaced by your Fedora release version.

  2. The -kde is missing the dependency to “python-xkit” ;)

    • Oops, thanks! I wonder why I have added python-xkit as a dependency to jockey-gtk; it should be added to jockey package rather than jockey-gtk and jockey-kde. Thanks a lot for reporting the problem. An update will be available soon.
