Ok. this is what I have. I have a source "binary" its directory structure is.
So if I am to build a rpm of it. how to I do it? the "cheat sheet" i have (one on the forums post up a couple) goes on about sources with ./config make ect ect.
so all that would be needed is the spec file telling it where these files need to go.
hope that makes sense. thanks
you need to write a RPM specfile ... but it seems to me you are missing the point:
in the specfile you need to specify (as a basic list), a sequence of action you want to perform when installing an rpm package, i.e.:
- preparation (extraction from a tarball file)
- building (you could skip this, as your files are already ready)
- installation i.e. which action you want to perform to install you files, where, using which permissions, which ownership ...
and several other things ...
you best path is start to evaluate some simple package, reading and understanding how the specfile is written, trying to modify the specfile ... not a very short path ... surely you can learn about ... but you can't skip all going straight to the end
