Red face Editing the file ~/.rpmrc ?


Does any one know how to edit file ~/rpmrc (It is not present by default). This file is checked by rpmbuild command while making the rpm along with files /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc and /etc/rpmrc.

Actually I want to unset the variable __arch_install_post. It's entry is made only in ~/.rpmrc

So what should I insert? Take for EG:

__arch_install_post {%nil}

or may be:

__arch_install_post /bin/true

Any ideas?????

AFAIK the line should be in ~/.rpmmacros instead. Some distros set it as:
Code:
%__arch_install_post /usr/lib/rpm/check-rpaths /usr/lib/rpm/check-buildroot
so if it's there:
Code:
%__arch_install_post /bin/true
should work for your purpose, but I wonder if it's the "right" place since forgetting it would be easy. Could you set something like
Code:
%global __arch_install_post /bin/true
in your .spec file instead? (I wonder if that works).

BTW, you're not building RPMs as root account user, aren't you?
