rpmbuild doesn't generate rpm package


I'm trying to do a rpm package that only changes some config files of other installed package. I don't need source and buildroot. Just use the post directive to run some shell script. When I rpmbuild -ba the SPEC file only the src.rpm is generated and the noarch.rpm does not.

Here's my SPEC file:

Name: syslog-clients-config
Version: 0.9
Release: 1
License: GPL
Group: DES/EDS
BuildArch: noarch
Requires: syslog-ng


cp /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf.`date +"%Y%m%d%H%M%S"`
cat /dev/null >/etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf
service syslog-ng reload
Any help?

Add %files

Try adding %files. I tried this with your example, and even with nothing in the %files section it wrote a noarch.rpm. I'm using rpm- So like:



cp blah blah
