I’ve started building SLURM RPMs using the Fedora COPR service, which allows Fedora developers to produce packages using the Fedora infrastructure. At the moment, the builds only work for EPEL6, EPEL7 and Fedora 22. There was a change in the RPM defaults for Fedora 23 and above that means the builds aren’t working at the moment. I’ve reported the bug upstream and will investigate it further when I have time.

My repository is at:


I’ve always found it a little strange that the upstream includes an embedded .spec file, but doesn’t provide RPMs themselves, so this is an attempt to work around that omission.

They could probably do with a bit of a cleanup (I doubt rpmlint will be very happy), but that will come later.
