It does package management using `RPM <http://rpm.org/>`_, `libsolv <https://github.com/openSUSE/libsolv>`_ and `hawkey <https://github.com/rpm-software-management/hawkey>`_ libraries. For metadata handling and package downloads it utilizes `librepo <https://github.com/tojaj/librepo>`_. To process and effectively handle the comps data it uses `libcomps <https://github.com/midnightercz/libcomps>`_. ============ Installing ============ DNF and all its dependencies are available in Fedora 18 and later, including the rawhide Fedora. Optionally you can use repositories with DNF nightly builds for last 2 stable Fedora versions available at copr://rpmsoftwaremanagement/dnf-nightly. You can enable the repository e.g. using:: dnf copr enable rpmsoftwaremanagement/dnf-nightly Then install DNF typing:: sudo yum install dnf In other RPM-based distributions you need to build all the components from their sources. ====================== Building from source ====================== All commands should be run from the DNF git checkout directory. To install the build dependencies:: sudo dnf builddep dnf.spec To build DNF:: mkdir build; pushd build; cmake ..; # add '-DPYTHON_DESIRED="3"' option for Python 3 build make; popd; To run DNF when compiled for Python2:: PYTHONPATH=`readlink -f .` bin/dnf-2 <arguments> To run DNF when compiled for Python3:: PYTHONPATH=`readlink -f .` bin/dnf-3 <arguments> If you want to build the manpages, use the option ``-DWITH_MAN=0`` with cmake. Man pages will be located in ``build/doc`` and can be read with ``man -l``, e.g:: man -l build/doc/dnf.8 ============================= Building and installing rpm ============================= From the DNF git checkout directory:: $ tito build --test --rpm # dnf install /tmp/tito/noarch/* =============== Running tests =============== From the DNF git checkout directory:: mkdir build; pushd build; cmake .. && make ARGS="-V" test; popd; ============== Contribution ============== Here's the most direct way to get your work merged into the project. 1. Fork the project #. Clone down your fork #. Implement your feature or bug fix and commit changes #. If you reported a bug or you know it fixes existing bug at `Red Hat bugzilla <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/>`_, append ``(RhBug:<bug_id>)`` to your commit message #. In special commit add your name and email under ``DNF CONTRIBUTORS`` section in `authors file <https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/blob/master/AUTHORS>`_ as a reward for your generosity #. Push the branch up to your fork #. Send a pull request for your branch Please, do not create the pull requests with translation (.po) files improvements. Fix the translation on `Zanata <https://fedora.zanata.org/iteration/view/dnf/master>`_ instead. =============== Documentation =============== The DNF package distribution contains man pages, dnf(8) and dnf.conf(8). It is also possible to `read the DNF documentation <http://dnf.readthedocs.org>`_ online, the page includes API documentation. There's also a `wiki <https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/wiki>`_ meant for contributors to DNF and related projects. ==================== Bug reporting etc. ==================== Please report discovered bugs to the `Red Hat bugzilla <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/>`_ following this `guide <https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/wiki/Bug-Reporting>`_. If you planned to propose the patch in the report, consider `Contribution`_ instead. Freenode's irc channel ``#yum`` is meant for discussions related to both YUM and DNF. Questions should be asked there, issues discussed. Remember: ``#yum`` is not a support channel and prior research is expected from the questioner.
