Cross-building RHEL and SLES rpm's from Ubuntu?
Is it practical to build rpms for RHEL 6.0 and SLES 11 SP1, by building one or two older versions of rpmbuild on Ubuntu 11.04?
RHEL appears to use rpm-build-4.8.0-12.
SLES appears to use rpm-build-126.96.36.199-37.16.37.
Are they both on the same side of the main rpm fork?
Do these distributions include any patches in their respective rpm-build SRPM's that might complicate matters?
Can we reasonably hope that we can grab http://rpm.org/wiki/Releases/188.8.131.52
(since it's the older of the two), build it once on Ubuntu 11.04, and then build compatible rpm's for both RHEL and SLES?
