I also started programming in basic on the VIC20 and C64. I got my first x86 PC (Tandy 1000) in the mid 80s and ran a dual node PCBoard BBS on it. I started with 2 20MB hard cards (at $500/ea) and actually became the second largest BBS in the state after adding an 80MB Seagate drive boosted to 146M...

thanks, now I have a *MUCH BETTER* working understanding of the build process with rpmbuild. a lot of it is out there but having someone to kind of "Tap on the shoulder and ask a question" helps when you get stuck! and it's always the little things like null Vs. nil that can really kill you eh? funn...

:D IT WAS WRONG!!!! :D

commented out the line in my .rpmmacros and the file in tmp is now valid
no more %{null}

!!! now that I know this I feel better....

so I guess %{nil} is right?

no debugging gunk in my kernel please!

that may be it....

I am checking ....

here:

www.linuxquestions.org has a how-to much like yours.

from there they said to put this into .rpmmacros

Code: Select all

%debug_package %{null}
are you saying that is wrong?
should be %{nil} ??

But it shouldn't just exit without giving an error message indicating what the problem is. It would be nice to see about the last 50-100 lines of the output from your rpmbuild command. what I posted before: and it was running along nice ---- it got to the modules build and ran them. then I saw an e...

What is the actual error message that you get when it dies? If it helps, here is my rpm-tmp file from the last build I did: http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/files/misc/mppe-mppc/rpm-tmp.20810 Also you know that the RPM you are building will end up in redhat/RPMS/i686 if you are building for i686, etc ...

I actually changed part of what I posted as you were posting apparently. Ignore the part where I said my spec file was not for 766 because it is. Duh! :) No Kiddin!!! :D I was looking back and saw the post had changed "Under my fingers" while I was typing!! :wink: and figured that you must have see...

The only other thing I can think of is I commented out two lines toward the end of the spec file that gathered the debuginfo stuff. I have my build environment set to not build the debuginfo packages so I get an error if I do not comment those lines out. You may have to uncomment them. Also, my spe...

I think I see my error now.....

hold off and I'll post back if I did fix it....

clue: spec file still lists the "Extra" config files I got rid of!
so I bet it wanted to do some other steps based on that list.

or I am totaly wrong?

Ok, just looked at your colorized spec file and my file is the same just with the %define chnaged like your how to says to chnage it for the name to show it's my build. Kernel 2.6.10 766 all compiles just that rpmbuild is giving us the wrong ending to the shell script. the system running the build h...

Hmmm, it's sort of hard for me to tell without more info. What exact kernel version are you building and can I see your spec file and build params? Maybe I can recreate your problem. it's the spec file you did a few days back I just shortened the name a bit. the *ONLY* things I have changed was to:...

yes, when I am done it will be a *VERY* minimal system, I have the tools and stuff there while I am working out my setup. I have a box I built about 4 years back with a simmialr setup but thats RedHat 6 I think -- or maby 7?? No sure if I updated it after the first build up. so yes the final config ...

Yes that is odd. I have a machine that does the same thing, I am not too sure why, but like you said its not the end of the world, so I don't really worry about it too much. I have 3 machines in my house with FC3 installed, and I installed them all pretty much the same way. 2 of them do as they sho...
