Project ID: 18515


This is an unofficial repository for nightly builds of KiCad.

Contrary to the current Fedora upstream KiCad package and the official KiCad nightly copr it does ship the libraries (templates, schematic symbols, and footprints) as separate packages. This may cause incompatibilities with existing installations, so if you are already using the official nightly copr you should disable it and uninstall your current version of KiCad before using this copr.

dnf copr remove @kicad/kicad dnf remove kicad

All packages are rebuilt every Saturday at 03:00 CE(S)T, unless no changes have been made to the respective source repository since the last build. This allows to do selective updates, e.g., if only the kicad-symbols repository has been updated within the last seven days, then only the kicad-symbols package is rebuilt and users get an update for that without the need to also download and install the application and other libraries.
