kurtcobain has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks, I want to build an RPM package that can be installed on any architecture and OS. Is it possible? I built a RPM package on Cent OS 6 . But i am unable to install it on Cent OS 5.

    Yes, it is possible to do what you ask provided you are not trying to do something specific to OS or CPU architecture. It's called a noarch RPM. how to build a noarch RPM

[moritz]: and everybody is like "if you just copy 250 lines of ugly JS into your free nodelet, and happent to know about it, there is a 40% that this workaround kinda works, sometimes"
[moritz]: ... "so there is no need to do anything"
[LanX]: and the code is a bit of a mess
[LanX]: moritz, no ... jsut copy one line of my code
[moritz]: I'm still using the CB, because ambrus's #cbstream makes it bearable
[LanX]: ... the rest is loaded from a node
[holli]: the best course of action would be to transfer the data to something well tested. even if it isnt perl based
[moritz]: but even if I had all the time in the world, I wouldn't spend much on perlmonks
[LanX]: holli: LOL
[LanX]: moritz: why ? family?
