Nightly Builds

NOTE: USE NIGHTLY BUILDS ONLY FOR DEVELOPMENT/TESTING. The Latest_Builds are a more stable alternative.

sysmocom has set up package builds for the current master version of the Osmocom GSM related software. As the name implies, these packages are built every night.

The packages are built for various Linux distributions, find the complete list at the OBS page:

How to use the osmocom:nightly builds

Debian based distributions

Using extrepo

# apt install extrepo
# extrepo enable osmocom-nightly


Replace Debian_XX with your distribution name, as found here.

$ sudo su
# wget $OSMOCOM_REPO/Release.key
# sha256sum Release.key
5c317407aef0671b7795d79942b4b9118dca199884d88accab2aae92a5ad08ba  Release.key
# mv Release.key /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/osmocom-nightly.asc
# echo "deb [signed-by=/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/osmocom-nightly.asc] $OSMOCOM_REPO/ ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/osmocom-nightly.list
# apt-get update
# exit

Raspberry Pi OS

Follow the instructions above, and replace Debian_XX with:
  • 64-bit: Debian_11
  • 32-bit: Raspbian_11

This example is for Raspberry Pi OS 11, adjust the number accordingly.

RPM based distributions

Example for CentOS_8, adjust it as necessary for other distributions as found here.

$ sudo su
# wget
# sha256sum osmocom:nightly.repo
804f3b16e0ede84ad9aac210267e4ee1c4eb7f894eddce16d61b8e1cb40c7bec  osmocom:nightly.repo
# mv osmocom:nightly.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/
# exit

As soon as you try to install a package from the Osmocom repository (e.g. dnf install osmo-hlr), dnf will import the repositories GPG key as defined in the .repo file (repomd.xml.key), download the repository index and finally install the Osmocom packages.

Apt Pinning

If you want to make sure that osmocom packages are always preferred over your distribution's upstream packages with the same name, see Apt_Pinning

How are those builds created?
