qbittorrent3 & screenfetch for CentOS 6.3

Following my previous post, I’m still updating my custom packages for my CentOS 6 installation. I added screenfetch to my small collection πŸ™‚

QBittorrent version 3.0.0 introduces some new features and few bugfixes as you can read from its changelog.

Screenfetch is a niece piece of free software that I’m maintaining for Mageia so, why not package it for CentOS? πŸ˜‰

Very nice the Red Hat ascii logo πŸ™‚

If you already have my repository enabled you will reach new versions as upgrades, otherwise you should enable it following the procedure described here.

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

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

Or directly download the file from this place.
