I’ve been occasionally making RPM packages, but I’ve only really followed the method of packaging stuff that came from a tar-ball that needed compiling. Yesterday at work I needed to package a static-binary for some hardware infomation gathering program we use here, and for the life of me I couldn’t find any documentation on how to do it easily for such files. All the howto’s (and even the bloody book I spent all my cash on) didn’t seem to be dispensing much wisdom on it.
After digging through some of Dag Wieers .spec files, I managed to find that using
install to install the files from
$RPM_BUILD_ROOT in the
%install stanza of the spec file seems to be the goods (well atleast on my laptop running FC1).
One thought on “RPM Packaging”
Had the same issue while trying to build an RPM to distribute some PHP source code.
No need for any of those compiling options.
