Re: State of distributions


With regard to RPM based distros:

Packages currently maintained in Fedora 12+, and EPEL 5+:


As for drizzle proper, I am maintaining builds for Fedora 12+ and EL 5+ 'un-officially' at:


Once ready packages will migrate from that repo to Fedora/EPEL.  As of maybe 2 releases ago, drizzle no longer builds on EL5 due to a dependency on a newer version of boost.  I am planning on building 'boostXY' side-by-side packages that can be installed next to boost and allow drizzle to build (similar to the dependency on gcc44 now on RHEL 5).  That said, once a 'boostXY' package is built I can submit it to EPEL and allow EL5 builds to continue.

I have not yet worked out why EL6-beta builds are failing, but that has to do with our automated packaging environment and not drizzle.

Progress is more or less updated here:


Please let me know if anyone has any questions about any of this.
