Info about PLD 3.0 (Th)

Release Manager

Jan Rękorajski (baggins at pld linux org) is the current RM.

Current status

PLD th is stable, in endless development. No releases are planned, but irregular snaphots are going to be made, main repository is constantly updated, but you can consider main th repository as stable distribution.

Supported architectures

Development of Th focuses on the following architectures:

  • generic x86-64
  • x86 (targets: i486, i686)

Development plans

Current development plans and todo list are available here.

Separate noarch target

In PLD 1.0 and PLD 2.0 noarch RPMs were placed alongside architecture specific packages. This changed in Th and now all packages are kept under paths corresponding to their target architectures (please see the next paragraph to see how to construct such a path).

Separate debuginfo

In PLD Th introduces debuginfo packages (detached debug info for gdb and friends). In Th all package debuginfo are kept under paths corresponding to their target architectures as debuginfo. This allows smaller poldek indexes meaning poldek likely works faster and perhaps happier mirror maintainers. See this mailing list post to see how it all started.

Directory structure

In Th, RPMs can always be found under th/$treename/$architecture/RPMS/ directory. Currently “PLD” and “test” trees will be used (most users will probably want to stay away from the latter) and The “ready” tree is known place as for RM to push packages to main tree, you can consider packages being in ready soon to be in “PLD” tree.


RPM packages are compressed using LZMA/XZ, which results in both substantially smaller file sizes and faster decompression.
