Installer for a python based program but on RHEL 7 and 8, OpenSUSE 15.x, SUSE 15.x, Ubuntu 18.04+ (off line install — understanding packaging in Install Builder)

This post was originally published on this site

Hi Guys,

I have a cross Linux (eventually to include Windows) COTS product.  Its python based and for the most part ALL the modules are identical.  However, for core OS modules such as c++, boost, python, python-dev and a few other packages each version of Linux has a slightly different packager for those modules. 


I am having a VERY hard time understanding how I tell Install Builder how to handle the different packages — and also how I download the actual packages AND dependencies so that Install builder can package them up for each different Linux flavor?


YIKES .. can somebody take a few minutes and explain how I get a package and its dependencies downloaded for each Linux flavor?



Thanks a bunch in advance.
