.NET Core Fedora RPM packages
This repository contains the spec files for building .NET Core RPM's.
These are the base for what will hopefully become the official .NET Core packages in Fedora.
These packages are maintained by the Fedora DotNet SIG (Special Interest Group). You can find out more about the DotNet SIG at:
Packages from this repository are available the DotNet SIG copr at https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/g/dotnet-sig/dotnet/
Please see the copr repository for steps on how to install the packages and use them.
Please report any issues here.
You will need credentials and permissions to build in copr.
Checkout the forked repository
git clone ssh://email@example.com/forks/$USER/dotnet-2-2.git
Bump version/release in the spec file. Add a Changelog. Make sure
Source tag corresponds to the new tarball name, if there is a
./update-releasescript to do everything. For example:
./update-release 2.2.3 2.2.105
Do local builds:
Fix any errors that come up and rebuild until it works locally.
Upload the new tarball to a public URL, if there is a new tarball. I use:
scp dotnet-2.2.100.tar.gz omajid.fedorapeople.org:public_html/dotnet/
spectool -g /path/to/dotnet.spec can download this
tarball from the public URL.
Commit the changes to the git repo and do a build on copr.
git add # any new files, such as new patches
git remove # old files, such as old patches
git commit -a
If it fails, update spec file/patches and rebuild with the same set of steps.
Pull down the packages from copr, and install them:
dnf copr enable @dotnet-sig/dotnet
dnf install dotnet-sdk-2.2
OR, if you already have the packages installed:
dnf upgrade 'dotnet*'
Make sure it installs the version you just built. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to an hour for the latest version to show up in the copr repos.
Run some smoke tests
dotnet new console -o ConsoleApplication
dotnet publish -c Release -r linux-x64
