Pagekite RPM and Yum repositories

Yum repository

Eddi's RPM packaging efforts (see below) are being integrated into the 0.4 branch of pagekite.py and we have created a Yum repository for recent versions of Fedora and RHEL/CentOS. We could use help testing!

Please try one of the following (as root) and let us know how it goes:

# Fedora 15 - (i386 works, 64 bit untested)
rpm -ivh https://pagekite.net/pk/yum/fedora/pagekite-repo-1-0fc15.noarch.rpm
yum install pagekite

# Fedora 16 - (i386 works, 64 bit untested)
rpm -ivh https://pagekite.net/pk/yum/fedora/pagekite-repo-1-0fc16.noarch.rpm
yum install pagekite

# RHEL 4 / CentOS 4 - untested
rpm -ivh https://pagekite.net/pk/yum/el/pagekite-repo-1-0el4.noarch.rpm
yum install pagekite

# RHEL 5 / CentOS 5 - seems to work!
rpm -ivh https://pagekite.net/pk/yum/el/pagekite-repo-1-0el5.noarch.rpm
yum install pagekite

# RHEL 6 / CentOS 6 - untested
rpm -ivh https://pagekite.net/pk/yum/el/pagekite-repo-1-0el6.noarch.rpm
yum install pagekite

# to uninstall everything:
rpm -e python-SocksipyChain pagekite pagekite-repo

See the ConfigureYourSystem page for details on how to integrate PageKite with your operating system so it runs in the background and starts automatically when your computer boots.

(For posterity, details about the old RPM packages have been moved to OldRpmDetails.)

    I have installed the CentOS 6 RPM, but I am unsure whether pagekite is now set to start at boot or not. I tried:

    service pagekite start

    which resulted in no output to terminal, but no pagekite process seems to be running.

    It should be set to start at boot, but without a valid config it will shut itself off right away. You need to follow the instructions on the Configure Your System page. :-)

    How about rpm's for f-17 and 18? F-16 is about to fall of the map (Feb. 8.)

    Bob, that's a good point, we are definitely a bit behind! I hope to have time to work on this again in January.

    FYI PageKite is now in Fedora 18+ and EPEL 5+ (stable)
