DHIS - Dynamic Host Information Services is a project of
Joao Cabral of Lisbon, Portugal. Joao and friends maintain
the prime site at: http://www.dhis.org/dhis/.|
We have created a SPEC and patch file set for building the server component,
which people have trouble with (The initial development of the
package occurred on an older version of BIND, and on the Solaris
platform, which is a bit tricky to port from). RPMs, SRPMs and the
SPEC file are at our FTP site, mentioned below.
The other files in the DHIS suite -- dhis, relay, and dhistools -- are also
packaged in SPEC files, and SRPMs and RPMS are also present.
We solicit feedback of your success and problems.
We've set up an FTP site, holding the
current pristine source, and RPM and SRPM files for users of that packaging
See our FTP site at:

This is a fairly new packaging, and so we are still 'tuning' the
SPECfiles. While the install documentation discusses
site-specific configuration matters, we can help get the
RPMs installed remotely. (Usually this is due to versioning
or distribution issues.)
Please provide this following email so we can diagnose:
rpm -Uvvh dhistools-4.0-3.i386.rpm 2>&1 | \
mail -s dhistool-bug firstname.lastname@example.org,root
* -- substitute the package name on the first and second lines
with which you are problems.
It will mail a copy of the install report to each of us. Then
send an email along too, with a description of any other helpful
information which you might offer. Be sure to include an email
address to which we might reply. This is done on a 'time
available' basis, but we can usually solve install issues
