Attempting to install setroubleshoot-server from source, as there are no ARM71 packages(error recieved from Alien rpm package installer when using arm7hl).

Default compilation from an extracted src.rpm installs the entire desktop package, which takes up alot of disk space with many desktop dependencies. Since I'm not running a desktop, and it wouldn't be feasible to do so with my hardware, I need only the setroubleshoot-server package for it's commandline tools.

On the fedora repository, there are several sub RPMs and and the main RPM. The source RPM installs the primary package from what I can tell, which is the desktop version.

How would I install only the setroubleshoot-server package from the given src.rpm file in the repository?

You could modify the spec-file to eliminate the (unnamed) main package and then make the rules for the server subpackage become the actual target. You can see the relevant parts by just looking at the lines beginning with '%', e.g.,

%find_lang %{name}
%package server
%description server
%pre server
%post server
%systemd_post auditd.service
%postun server
%systemd_postun_with_restart auditd.service
%triggerun server -- %{name}-server < 3.2.24-4
%files server -f %{name}.lang

which have "server" as a parameter.

But if you're not used to writing spec-files that could take a while.

Aside from that, no: there is no direct way to build just part of a package.
