Ok thanks very much.
I did what you said, being logged in as a user and ran the command 'rpm -i packagename' and I got an error that reads "warning: user texstart does not exist - using root' and 'warning: group texstar does not exist - using root'
Also I should mention even when I made no changes at all to this package and just tried to rebuild it I still can't get it to build. Is there something wrong with the package or is there something wrong with the guy behind the keyboard?
Also I did checked out the patches for this package. PCLOS already has a patch for one of the things I was trying to change and that's the branding URL in the kickoff menu. The patch indicates that 'http://www.kde.org
" will be changed to "http://www.pclinuxos.com
" yet the menu branding icon still goes to kde's website. What's going on here?
I just tried to rebuild this package again but this time without any changes at all. It still failed to build. I took the SRPM and had to manually extract it. I took the spec file and placed it into the ~/src/rpm/SPECS folder and I placed everything else (except the spec file) into the SOURCES folder. I CDed into the SPEC folder and did a "rpmbuild -bb 44-kdebase-workspace.spec". It makes it to about 47 percent every time and errors out with "Linking CXX shared modeule ../../../../lib/plasma_engine_statusnotifieritem.so"
"[47%] Built target plasma_engine_statusnotifieritem:"
"make: *** [all] Error 2"
"error: Bad exit status from /home/temp/src/tmp/rpm-tmp.52979 (%build)"
Again this is with no changes what so ever to this package.
