Re: Cannot cd to %{name}-%{version}

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


i did
%prep
%setup -qn pcore

that is how i got make to run.

but i get :
cp: cannot create regular file `/pcore-0.1/usr/bin/': No such file

as a result of :
%install
cp obj/ggsnc/ggsnc $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_bindir}/

What i want to know id that ( as far as i think ) 
that %install
happens in a chroot
and if i give the correct folder, the copy should happen ?
plus i WANT to copy the binary executable in /usr/bin
not sure HOW to do that

Thanks,
-Kamal.

use: %setup -qn pcore
