Quick easy way to create a simple rpm file
Hello, I have a built piece of software that I wrote with a whopping 3 files included total. I want to package this inside an rpm. I don't need complex stuff like postinstall scripts, dependencies, subpackages, or any of that stuff. I just want a simple rpm with the 3 files, a package identifier, and a summary. I am not planning on posting this rpm on a repo such as fedora or rpmfusion. How can I do this?

I recently had the same question myself, and found out that (of all people) IBM has a pretty good guide.
They use wget and it's man page as an example, so it's pretty straight-forward.

The only problem with RPM (or any packaging system like SlackWare or Solaris); in order to just package two or three files, it takes a *lot* more work than something like this;

scp ./directory unixguy@hostname:/path/to/copy
Happy Packaging!
