Where to get a source rpm from?

Hi forum,

I must use a rather dated glibc, and because of that the provided “coolwsd” rpm package for opensuse will not work.
Now I want to compile the package, but I cannot find a source rpm.
Do you know where to find it?

I am interested as well.

Hey @mstenzel + @renich ,

Thanks for the questions.

  • Can you give a little more details? (Like exact OS + versions?)

Does this page help you?

That page includes the DEB + RPM files in various formats.

If you needed to build Collabora directly from source, have you tried following the OpenSUSE instructions here:

Could you describe exactly what steps you got snagged on + what the exact errors are?

Hey @Tex, thank you for answering.

I am familiar with the compilation process.

As you might know, SRPMs allow us to repackage/recompile the software for different platforms.

It would make our life much easier to just get the SRPM.

IMHO, it’s a bit odd that the SRPM isn’t available. I imagine that you do not want to share the branding source since it’s distributed with an EULA.

Ah - so, SPRMs are great - but I suspect we compile the core code (as is done up-stream) by using the internal LibreOffice build system which likes to control the package build process, and spits out packages for both DEB and RPM systems at the end IIRC.

So, there is no SRPM? At least a spec file would be nice.

Again - I believe any spec files would be generated - prolly by EPM during the build process cf. EPM we have an inside-out build process instead of an outside-in one for our binaries.
