Unix Ports and more

This is the home of all known Unix ports and also for other ports. The reason we did that is, because is't almost not possible to keep track of the different pages where people provide ports.


Every port has to be listed at the available ports section below. If the port isn't available as rpm, then at a separate page it should be explained how to patch and build. See explain for how such a page should look like. Every checkin or change to the wiki needs a comment. In the comment the port needs to be included like: "portxy: some comment about what was changed".


Setting up a build env

To start building unix ports please use only rpm available tools and libs. As else it will be very hard to set up a decent build env.
See RPM wiki for more information.

Reporting Bugs

Reporting bugs and requesting new features is done through the ticket system. You can view existing tickets, add comments to them and create new tickets using the corresponding buttons at the top of every page. If you want to submit a new bug or request a feature, please use the Search function first to make sure there is no ticket for this task already created.
We review the tickets regulary and leave comments if we need more info. So please revisit the Feedback analysis as often as possible. If we leave comment and don't get feedback from the ticket creator, we will close the ticket after some weeks.

Anonymous access to the ticket system has been restricted due to multiple attacks of stupid spammers we've been suffering from during the last month. In order to create a new ticket or comment the existing one, you need to login with your Netlabs login id. If you do not have a login id, you can request one at We are sorry for inconvenience, but at the present time this is the only way to avoid extremely annoying spam.
