Compile RPM on Itanium2

Hi,

I have a problem making RPM on Redhat Advance Server installed on Itanium2 Server, I tried to make the latest Samba by using "sh makerpms.sh" which was told as the documentation, but it cannot be done, at the end it gave me an error. What could have wrong?

Samba package has a bug, it's fixed here :
https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2002-209.html
Do you use this version ?
If so, what is your error message ?

Re: Compile RPM on Itanium2

Thanks, the error is
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.20500 (% build)

RPMm Build errors:
Bad exit status from var/tmp/rpm-tmp.20500 (% build)

from the link you sent me, that means I can update to Samba 2.2.7?

Yes, if your advanced server is the correct version. Otherwise, check on the same page package for your version.

Re: Compile RPM on Itanium2

How do I update to the latest version, by using rpm -u or I need to uninstall the older version before I install the newer version?

Re: Compile RPM on Itanium2

Hi

Do you know that "rawhide" is a version that for test purpose.
If you use the IA64 box as production, I don't recommend to use RPMs from rawhide.
Use RPMs from RHN instead should be better idea.

Good Luck
