I need help on rpmbuild command. I am working on RHEL3 platform. I wanted to create a RPM package for my application. I followed these steps to create RPM package.
1. created one .spec file according to the requirement.
2. run the command rpmbuild -bs filename.spec
3. This will create the src package
4. Then ran the command rpmbuild -ba filename.spec.
this will build the RPM package in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386 path.
When i go to that path and run " rpm -i filename.rpm"
it throws the following error
error: Failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3.4) is needed by filename
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.4) is needed by filename
So when i use rpm -i --nodeps filename.rpm, i will not get the dependencies error. Hence the problem is solved.
But i want to build the rpm without any dependencies. when i saw the rpmbuild --help, it says we can use "rpmbuild --nodeps -ba filename.spec"
But i am not able to configure the dependencies error while installing the rpm.
Can anyone please suggest me a solution where i can configure the dependencies error while building the rpm.
Thanks in advance
