openSUSE Build Service Expands Support to Red Hat and CentOS

January 24th, 2008 by

The openSUSE Build Service, an innovative framework that provides an infrastructure for software developers to easily create and compile packages for multiple Linux distributions, has extended its support to build packages for CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The openSUSE Build Service already supports several Linux distributions including openSUSE, Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, SUSE Linux Enterprise and Ubuntu.

“As its name suggests, the openSUSE project is committed to choice and opposed to the exclusion of innovation simply because it may have originated in another project,” said Michael Loeffler, openSUSE product manager at Novell. “By adding support to build packages for CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the openSUSE Build Service makes it even easier to build packages across multiple Linux distributions, thus further enabling innovative ideas to spread quickly throughout the free and open source software community. As we seek to streamline and improve collaboration between all Linux developers, the openSUSE Build Service continues to innovate and improve the way packages are built by providing a common framework that works with any Linux distribution.”

Huge thanks and congratulations go to Adrian Schröter and the openSUSE Build Service team for implementing this great new capability.

    This is very positive, it does create possibilities, and I wish to thank Novell and openSUSE for allowing resources, time, manpower and money to accomplish these goals. I hope this will be part of a long term plan within your company, I certainly appreciate it, having used The Build Services myself using current openSUSE 10.3 64 bit version, a distribution I am proud to say is Rock Solid and pleasure to use.
