How to register ant with rpm database?


I downloaded Apache Ant apache-ant-1.5.4-bin.tar.gz. I carried out all instructions -- set up $ANT_HOME and added bin to my $PATH. Ant is a dependency for eclipse. The problem is, when I now try to build eclipse source rpm still says that there is no ant. How can I register ant with the rpm database?

Thanks,

Janis

Check if rpm has an inject option or something like that. I haven't used RPM in ages.

Actually, there is a program called inject.
Try that out, it'll add things to the rpm database.

or perhaps my question should be rephrased: how to build an rpm out of a tarball for ant?
Perhaps somebody has the rpm or an example SPEC file for ant already?

Should be in /usr/bin or /bin from what I remember.

what a good memory you have, teval. But, it appears to me, the concept won't work. You need to first build the rpm from the tarball, then install it as always.

Anyway, I installed ant and tomcat using rpm. For this there is a quite ok howto here:

I used the newest versions from www.jpackage.org and it worked.

J.
