Any interest in a medical repo?

Hi all,

As a med student with an interest in linux I was wondering if there was any interest in a medical repo? I have made a few packages for personal use, mostly DICOM viewers and libraries, one of which is in AUR and the rest of which will follow soon. There is quite a lot of open source medical stuff though, and I know there is a medical repository for debian, so if there was interest I could package these too.

I have hosting that should give me enough bandwidth (unless there are more arch-using medics out there than I thought:)). Let me know what you think.

I see no harm on tailoring to the different interests of people out there.

Re: Any interest in a medical repo?

I'm interesting in this too, we are a cuban enterprise developing medical imaging applications, and we use several opensource libs like dcmtk and gdcm, personally, I use arch as my ONLY linux distro but, I would love to see more medical applications and libraries in main repos.

Re: Any interest in a medical repo?

You should definitely do this if you can.

Would you be able to provide a repo for both i686 and x86_64? In either case, I would suggest making the PKGBUILDs available on the repo server (even if you upload them to the AUR) so that they're all in once place.

Take a look at makerepo too. One of the reasons that I wrote it was to facilitate keeping the repo on my site up-to-date (makerepo + lftp + a few scripts = streamlined repo maintenance).

Holy resurrected thread batman!

Am a qualified doctor now, no longer a student, so my free time has taken a beating.

That said I am still interested in doing this, so will try to put something together.

Re: Any interest in a medical repo?

There once was a package request for the dicom viewer kradview and I made a PKGBUILD for it, which I maintain in AUR. I never had any feedback for it. I am not a medicine, and so I do not use kradview. Would someone like to maintain it in AUR?

Re: Any interest in a medical repo?

Quite old when looking at the dates but I think I'm interested in it.

I'm a radiologist and quite like things working. The distro of my choice is arch, unfortunately the amounts of working dicom viewers is approaching zero.
Besides I like the simple workflow of Arch I'm forced to use three different OS at the moment. (Arch, Win7 and MacOS).
Standard is Arch, Win7 for scientific papers..thanks to endnote. And the MacOS with OsiriX as DICOM viewer.
In some harsh words: That sucks alot!

Besides there are good programs in my Arch world like the DICOM viewer ginkgo-cadx https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=47365 or the citation managers zotero https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=46784  / mendeley https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=44071

I think other programs like GNUmed or maybe aeskulap and many more are also helpful for your daily workflow.

The problem as a doctor is you need things just working everytime and anywhere and for me I'm just to stupid to build and fix things myself.
I've tried though but I failed so far. For these cases I need alot assistance.

So if we could form a team, help each other out and could assure PKBUILD files in the AUR work out of the box I would be totally in. I don't think we need a medical repo. AUR is working quite well.

Anyone else?

Re: Any interest in a medical repo?

Hello, everyone, you can notice a repository now with only 40 packages for bioinformatics.
This is a new repository and welcomes everyone's contribution. It can be auto-updated if people configure the python robot lilac. Hopefully, someone can join us.

Re: Any interest in a medical repo?

Please don't necrobump a 9 year old thread, if you want to bring renewed attention to the repo you are doing consider opening a distinct thread.
