Unhappy How to build an RPM from a source file ?


Hello,

Currently, I'm trying to upgrade my linux kernel. But I could only find is a source rpm format. kernel-2.4.9-e.27.src.rpm

How do I build the kernel from this source rpm file ? Thanks in advance.

regards

Install the rpm, then build from the spec file, or use the rebuild argument.
