Unable to Built RPM


Hi
I am using AS3.When i try to build a RPM by using command *rpmbuild -bb SPECES/mondo.spec*
The Message prompt command not found. I think the rpm_build package is missing. I search on internet but not found the source RPM. Any one helps me regarding that matter
Thanks in advance

Shalom,

rpm -qa | grep rpm

If rpmbuild is missing, try installing it off the original media.

Re: Unable to Built RPM

Shalom,

Find the original install cds.

Insert them in cd-rom drive.

mount if needed.

find the rpmbuild rpm.

It may have dependencies, so you may want to create an install point on disk with all rpms.

Just cp -av all the rpms to a folder

cd /installfolder

rpm -ivh --aid rpmbuild.blah.blah.rpm

That will install the rpm and all dependencies.

Re: Unable to Built RPM

Why not just 'up2date -i rpm-build' ?
