I am running Fedora 7 on MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, in order for my system to work properly I need to install newer versions of certain packages than are available in the repositories. Specifically, I need to update to:
madwifi-0.9.3.3 (from SVN)
I have already compiled and installed these packages from source. and everything is fine with them, except that Fedora doesn´t know they are installed. And yum keeps trying to install older versions. And there are lots of other packages that are dependent on them.
One idea I had would be build rpms from the source and install that way. But I can´t seem to find the proper spec files.
Does anyone have any other ideas?
