How to build an RPM

The basic procedure to build an RPM is as follows:

* Get the source code you are building the RPM for to build on your system.

* Make a patch of any changes you had to make to the sources to get them to build properly.

* Make a spec file for the package.

* Make sure everything is in its proper place.

* Build the package using RPM.

Under normal operation, RPM builds both binary and source packages.

One of the most typical and important task is to make the spec file.
Still i am collecting information about the spec file and in next post i will be writing about it and make a sample spec file.

enjoy... make world open.
