package Some departments of Rutgers University, specifically Central Systems and Services, use a ported version of the RPM Package Manager to install and upgrade software on Sun Solaris machines. This website is the main source for our Solaris packages. Our primary method of installing and updating of Solaris packages is done via a port of Debian's apt suite.

For Linux (CentOS and Fedora), we use the standard yum suite. To build locally maintained RPMs, Rutgers hosts one of the few Koji installations worldwide that is independent of the Fedora Project.

To get started, please choose one of the web interfaces we offer on the right. To report packaging bugs, or for other assistance requests, write to oss@oss.rutgers.edu.

linux Linux Repositories
We maintain mirrors of selected releases of Fedora, RPMFusion, CentOS, Arch Linux, and Ubuntu. Our mirrors are synced daily with their masters.
You can browse our CentOS repository, including locally maintained packages, via rpm2python.
To request a mirror of a particular distro, email oss@oss.rutgers.edu
How To Install
To use our repository on CentOS 5, install the following RPM:
To use our repository on CentOS 6, install the following RPM:

Additionally, if you want to use the centos.rutgers.edu mirror, then run:
# mv /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo.rutgers-mirror-example /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo
solaris Solaris Repositories
Solaris 9 on Sparc 64 is supported.
There are two main supported releases of this repository, currently named "stable" and "testing".
Stable: Considered well tested for use on primary production servers.
Testing: More up-to-date versions which are generally considered reliable, but should be used on test machines since the software has not been as well tested as those in stable.
We offer a web interface to the list of packages that are more recent in testing than stable.

How To Install
Grab ftp://rpm.rutgers.edu/rpm-apt-bootstrap.sh.
Set the RELEASE environment variable to the desired release.
For example, execute this:

RELEASE="testing" sh rpm-apt-bootstrap.sh

To use stable, omit the variable declaration, since stable is chosen by default.
