Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

it does create a directory by the name of dashboard-2.0.1 in the /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
directory and in this directory, it untars all the files, but my problem is.....
that when i export this dashboard-2.0.1-1mdk.src.rpm binary rpm file to another red hat linux pc and execute it using rpm -ivh dashboard-2.0.1-1mdk.src.rpm command,
all it does is ,gives a message package is 100%, but it doesn't create the same directory
of 'dashboard-2.0.1' in the /usr/src/redhat/BUILD directory of that remote machine and therfore files are also not untarred there......why so.........?
i am confused and don't know as to how should i create an rpm which when installs on that
another pc, automatically creates a directory in the same manner and in the same location and also untars the files
as it was doing on the first machine(where i am running my .spec file)
as far as i can think of it's may be bcauz when i query my package using the command
rpm -qlp dashboard-2.0.1-1mdk.i586.rpm
contains no files
acc. to me now that may mean , that the files have not been put into the package,even
though the .rpm has been generated.
This again acc. to me may be due to my %file section in .spec file being empty.......
but i don't know how to create/put the files into package using the %file section, even if
this is the problem.....though i am not sure....
plz. help as i have been trying for many days now.......
my platform/distribution/kernel version are as under:
