Novacom is in Fedora

In my last post, I mentioned that I had patched Novacom to work in Fedora and was packaging it. Thanks to Mohamed El Morabity’s review, Novacom is now in Fedora 15+ as well as EPEL 5/6.

So if you’re running Fedora or RHEL with EPEL enabled, installing novacom is as easy as:
yum install novacom

      F17 is frozen right now.  Novacom will be available in the first set of updates.  Until then, you can run “yum –enablerepo=updates-testing install novacom”.

    I had been trying to get novacom running to access my Pre 3, to no avail.

    Then I read your previous blog post, rebuilt the srpms from the review, installed the result, and everything worked.

    Yesterday when updating my laptop, I saw the latest novacom coming from the repositories, replacing the ones I had rebuilt myself.

    Sounds like a win to me. Thank you. 🙂
