Unable to build RPM file from tarball


Hi,

I would like to use Openvpn for vpn connection, and have downloaded openvpn tarball from the website. When I tried to build the rpm file for installation, it prompted error.

command: rpmbuild -tb openvpn-2.0.tar.gz
error: Failed build dependencies:
lzo-devel >= 1.07 is needed by openvpn-2.0-1

What is meant by that error and what is the method to solve this?

Thanks.

It means that you need to install a package called lzo-devel for your rpm to build.
