Zultron RPM Repos

Welcome to the Zultron RPM repository.

News: The RPMFusion FreeCAD package has been updated to the recently released v0.13. The new required package python-collada has not finished the Fedora new package review process, however. That package can be found in this repo.

The Zultron RPM repository carries CAD/CAM/CNC-related packages not in Fedora and RPMFusion. When possible, these packages will be submitted to those repositories and removed from here when accepted.

These packages work with fc17, fc18 and EL6. They depend on the RPMFusion Nonfree repositories for packages such as OCE, required by FreeCAD.

Following is a list of currently maintained packages. There may also be unlisted supporting RPMs.

Repo RPM name RPM version Notes
Stable kernel-rt-xenomai 2.6.2.1/3.5.7 Xenomai 2.6.2.1 on vanilla kernel 3.5.7
python-collada 0.4 pycollada is needed by FreeCAD v0.13; currently in review on Fedora
Bleeding freecad git HEAD Occasional pulls of git HEAD
