I'm not sure how to provide what you want. You say you want the latest
stable - for F13, that is 184.108.40.206 and the other
dependencies/co-components such as 389-admin-1.1.13, 389-adminutil, etc.
If you would rather use the latest 1.2.6 which is 220.127.116.11, I can show
you where to get the srpm, but how do you know which other components to
use with that?
My mistake, I was checking directory.fedoraproject.org
which says 1.2.7
is still in alpha. But this side-steps the actual issue I am faced with.
The problem I have is I'm on a dark site, and we pull the 389-ds source
from another computer (which happens to be a F13 computer for now), copy
it over via convoluted means to a redhat computer where we recompile and
use 389-ds. We used to use Redhat DS, but we wanted some of the newer
functionality available in 389-ds.
A more direct question: what is the easiest way for me to pull the
latest RHEL-5 stable source as an RPM and its dependencies and sources,
if I'm not on a RHEL-5 host?
I think an implicit flaw in the whole "yum to distribute" method is it
assumes you are on the host you want to install on.
The only other method I've found is to browse koji. It is a bit like
trying to find a needle in a haystack.
