Building RPMs

My src RPM import notes

Importing a srpm/contrib.

Big note. If you are importing a server package then you need the common dir from an existing server package and not a contrib - they are different

It helps to have a dir with some common CVS files in.

On your local build server (could be on your koozali shell)

mkdir -p ~/smecontribs/rpms/NewPackage/contribs10
cd ~/smecontribs/rpms

Only required to add to CVS if it is totally new:

cvs add NewPackage 
cd NewPackage


cvs add contribs10
cd contribs10

We need to get a common directory & Makefile there - note this is for a contrib, not server package

cp -R ~/rpms/{another package}/contribs10/common ~/rpms/NewPackage/contribs10
cp -R ~/rpms/{another package}/contribs10/Makefile ~/rpms/NewPackage/contribs10

Alternatively I already have a directory with these files in that I can re-use

cp -r ~/CVS_files/* ~/smecontribs/rpms/NewPackage/contribs10/

Update the name in the Makefile:

perl -p -i -e 's/{another package}/NewPackage/g' Makefile
./common/ -b contribs10 -m 'Initial import' NewPackage.src.rpm
make new-sources FILES="v-x.x.x.tar.gz"
cvs commit -m "Add updated sources file NewPackage"

Now, at this juncture it refused to mockbuild properly.

In the end I removed ALL the files in the NewPackage contribs10 dir and then did:

rm -rf *
cvs update -dPA

Then I did:

make clean;make prep; make mockbuild and it built

I then just did

make build


To get the name of the distribution in the filename you need something like this in the spec file.

Note the Release version format
