I recently joined your robotics-list.
Let me introduce myself:
I am Egon Kastelijn and I live in The Netherlands.
I have been working on my personal robot for many years now, but I do
have any physical result yet. ;)
This is mainly caused by the fact that my robot does not have a clear
Mission yet, and that most of my time has gone into the Java brain that I
am programming. (environment-modelling and path-planning)
Some time ago I discovered Phidgets.
Phidgets are easy to use USB devices (sensors-kits/motor-controllers/etc)
that work very well under Linux. They can even be accessed using Java.
The LGPL code that they provide compiles very well, but there are no RPMs
So I decided to create them.
I have a .spec file, and the rpmbuild produces a nice SRPM, i686 and
x86_64 RPMs. (and debuginfo)
* Is this (phidget hardware support) something that belongs within this SIG?
I think it does!
I am planning on putting the RPMs in my own yum repository soon.
* Is there a way that I can contribute to get this software in the Fedora
Yes, there is!
Check this first: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join
It takes some time (specially for the first time), but you can add any
good open source packages to Fedora. I hope to see your RPMs soon :)
