I'm attempting to create an RPM from a spec file that was provided here:
Having not used rpm much, I assume that I execute the command
rpmbuild and point it at the spec file.
rpmbuild sauron.spec error: File /root/rpmbuild/SOURCES/sauron-0.7.3.tar.gz: No such file or directory
Since it appears that the rpmbulid utility expects files to be located in a certain location, I copy them there.
tree ~/rpmbuild/ /root/rpmbuild/ ├── BUILD ├── BUILDROOT ├── RPMS ├── SOURCES │ └── sauron-0.7.3.tar.gz ├── SPECS │ └── sauron.spec └── SRPMS
I've tried executing the rpmbuild command from ~ , ~/rpmbuild/SPECS and other directories, yet I'm not able to create the RPM. There is no output or logging that would indicate what the problem might me.
This should be a simple task, yet even with google, I'm not able to figure it out. Can anyone offer guidance on how to build this RPM?
