openSUSE:Standards Rpm Metadata products
tagline: From openSUSE
Repomd Product Format
The product format is similar to the usual packages format (as used in primary.xml) except
- the enclosing XML is <product> instead of <package>
- certain package specific data like e.g. dependencies are not needed for products, therefore has additional tags tuning
the installation and registration proces.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <products> <product> <name>SUSE_SLES</name> <version ver="11.1" rel="1.152" epoch="0" /> <arch>i586</arch> <vendor>SUSE LINUX Products GmbH, Nuernberg, Germany</vendor> <summary>SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1</summary> <description>SUSE Linux Enterprise offers a comprehensive suite of products built on a single code base. The platform addresses business needs from the smallest thin-client devices to the world’s most powerful high-performance computing and mainframe servers. SUSE Linux Enterprise offers common management tools and technology certifications across the platform, and each product is enterprise-class.</description> </product> </products>
The name, version, release of a product in this file must match the provides in RPM package containing the product file.
In this example the "Provides" must look like this:
Provides: product(SUSE_SLES) = 11.1-1.152
The architecture of the package should be "i586" like specified in XML snipped above.
Those are data the YAST product/add-on installation workflow would need to install some product shipped in a repomd format repository. Currently only the susetags content file defines those data.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <products> <product> ... <!-- LINGUAS --> <linguas> <lang>da</lang> <lang>de</lang> </linguas> <!-- PATTERNS --> <patterns> <pattern name="foo" /> <pattern name="foo-32bit" /> </patterns> <!-- REGISTERPRODUCT --> <registerproduct value="true" />
