Re: Primitive use of rpm
I solved my main problem of not finding the files by using different switches on my rpm command. I wanted to keep everything inside the spec file, so I could just distribute it, but I failed.
rpmbuild -bb --buildroot /tmp/rpmash_build wam.spec
"--buildroot" being the significant factor.
My remaining problems are:
1. The build erases the /tmp/rpmash_build tree each time I build the rpm file.
2. The build places the rpm file where it wants to, and names the rpm file what it wants to. I would like to specify the location and the name.
I have read the "man rpmbuild" documentation, but I don't see switches to control these things.
