How to produce rpm files?


I have a tar.gz file that I need to compile/assemble to an rpm.

How do I do this on RH8.0?

"rpm -ba <specfile>", where specfile is the file that contains the commands that get used to make the binaries and in/deinstall them.
Next to reading the manpage, examples should be under in /usr/src/redhat. Else try to D/L someone's <appname>.src.rpm and dissect.
