RPM support

TimeKeeper comes with several RPM spec files and FSMLabs provides prebuilt RPMs for some platforms.

RPMs can also be built for your platform by using these 2 spec files found in /opt/timekeeper/release64:

These build two separate RPMs for your deployment - timekeeper.spec builds the main TimeKeeper RPM, excluding configuration files. There will only be one timekeeper RPM installed at any one time.

The timekeeper-config.spec build an RPM contains configuration files, such as the site-specific timekeeper.conf file and the TimeKeeper license file. There will also only be one timekeeper-config RPM installed at any one time. Some users prefer to use only the timekeeper RPM and use Puppet or some other configuration management system to manage configuration data - this is fine. FSMLabs does not provide prebuilt versions of the timekeeper-config RPM.

Prebuilt RPMs

FSMLabs also provides prebuilt RPMs of TimeKeeper for various distributions and versions. TimeKeeper version 8.0.30 and later now deliver RPMs based on rpmbuild version 4.14.3. This includes SHA256 digests which can be verified as follows:

# rpm --checksig -v timekeeper-08.00.30-1.x86_64.rpm
    Header SHA256 digest: OK
    Header SHA1 digest: OK
    Payload SHA256 digest: OK
