rpmbuild DISTRO= question


Hi,
I'm installing 3rd party software whose installation instructions say:
#rpmbuild --rebuild --define DISTRO=REDHAT_AS_21 40002086_H.src.rpm

I'm running RHEL6 (uname -r = "2.6.32-131.21.1.el6.x86_64") and am offered the following to use in the DISTRO= portion of the command:
Red Hat 7.2 - REDHAT_72
Red Hat 7.3 - REDHAT_73
Red Hat 8 - REDHAT_8
Red Hat 9 - REDHAT_9
Red Hat ES 2.1 - REDHAT_ES_21
Red Hat AS 2.1 - REDHAT_AS_21
Red Hat AS 3 - REDHAT_AS_3, REDHAT_ES_3
Red Hat WS - REDHAT_WS_3

Any clues as to which, if any, actually mean RHEL6?

I've scoured the forums for an answer to this and have found nothing.

Thanks!
-Brad

Hi BradMarks,

None of the given options points to RHEL6. The options that they have given are quite older versions of Red Hat. I would suggest you to check with third party if you there applications is compatible with RHEL6. If yes, then let them suggest you as to what you need to put in distro section.

Thanks

I've submitted this question to the supplier of this 3rd party software. Hopefully they'll have an appropriate answer.
Thanks for your help.

Smile Solved!

...but can't find out how to actually mark a thread as solved. Somewhere I read that it was under 'tools', but I can't even find 'tools'!
