Contributions to Mageia – December 2012


It was a difficult time to me so, I’ve upgraded three packages only and maintained some of the already existing ones to address some issue related to gcc-4.7, automake 1.13 and the bleeding new llvm-3.2.

I’ve been also busy translating blog posts for because I’m the only willing to do this job (at least during the last few months) and -maybe- because I’m also the i18n-it team leader.

  • curtain (fixed bug similar to mga#7795)
  • qlipper (fixed bug similar to mga#7795)
  • juffed (rebuilt against new qscintilla and patched to solve issue with gcc-4.7)
  • squirrelsh (solved issue with gcc-4.7)
  • gambas3-3.3.4 (fixed compilation against the new llvm 3.2 and the new automake 1.13)


  • gmic-
  • qscintilla-2.7
  • yaflight-0.99.19

Lot of work has been done to improve the community logo, to make the aspect more uniform passing through the cms, the forum and the wiki and -finally- to make the forum accessible using mobile devices (like tablets or smartphones).

Take a look by yourself 😉


See you next month for a new summary of my activities and…

wish you a Happy New Year!

qbittorrent and filezilla on CentOS 6.2

Yesterday I’ve installed a fresh CentOS 6.2 on my small home pc which aims to be a small server 🙂

After I’ve installed and configured apache, samba and similar stuff, I enabled some additional repositories to install additional software. I was stuck when I was not able to find qbittorrent and filezilla.

Even with these applications missing, CentOS, Scientific Linux and, obviously, Red Hat Enterprise Linux are still great GNU/Linux distros!

However I’ve found on some packages but they were old versions packages and more than anything I wasn’t sure to trust them.

So my answer was “I don’t trust them and I need newer versions of these applications“. That’s why I built my own small repository containing my homemade packages:

qbittorrent 2.9.7 on CentOS 6.2
FileZilla 3.5.3 on CentOS 6.2

Feel free to use it, if you trust me 😉

You can copy/paste the text block below into /etc/yum.repos.d/Matteo Pasotti.repo to enable the yum repository.

### Name: xQuiet RPM Repository for CentOS 6
### URL: http://Matteo
[Matteo Pasottirepo]
name = CentOS $releasever - Matteo
baseurl = http://Matteo$releasever.2/$basearch/
enabled = 1
