One lucky son-of-a-gun here runs Linux Mint and so he (me ) got to install the new HipChat4 linux client. It ROCKS!
When could we expect RPMs for other distros - CentOS 6 and 7 particularly.
Or could we get the source to compile and package ourselves?
For anyone testing out these rpms be aware that at least as of
HipChat4-220.127.116.118-Linux.rpm 08-Sep-2016 17:05 89.84 MB
The rpm incorrectly specifies Provides: for it's bundled versions of libraries and that can cause other packages installed on the system after it to break, since it satisfies the new package's dependency, but doesn't actually make the library available to the other applications.
After a bit of exploring around the URL given for the DEB repo, I have found a HipChat4 RPM here: https://atlassian.artifactoryonline.com/atlassian/webapp/#/artifacts/browse/tree/General/. Click on "hipchat-yum-client", and you can see the RPM's, and the "Set Me Up" link will give you yum repo information (no user/password needed in the baseurl in this case). This works for me in openSUSE Leap 42.1 (after installing the "yum" package of course: the native package manager for openSUSE is "zypper") and setting up the artifactory.repo file as described.
I have no idea if Atlassian (intend to) support this, or if so why they haven't documented it, so YMMV.
+1! I found an RPM for version 2.2.1388 not long ago, but even that seems to have disappeared now. RPM-family distros (RedHat/CentOS/SuSE) are as mainstream as Debian/Ubuntu/Mint. Saying "Run it on everything ... available on Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and Linux" is simply misleading if "Linux" means Debian family only.
Alien might be an acceptable workaround for some, but not for everyone since it isn't really supported/certified in the most important distros.
...from the beginning. We have built up a lot of content in HipChat, with it being a core tool in our distributed company model. While it is true that we didn’t need to move to Slack immediately, we felt it...
