RPM rebuild?


When trying to use RPM re-build i get this error..
Code:
[root@localhost tmp]# rpm --rebuild
/usr/lib/rpm/rpmb: No such file or directory
Do you think i need a new version of rpm rebuild, or maybe i'm missing some libs?

If you want to rebuild RPM's you need to have the rpm-build RPM-Package installed ... I assumed that and double checked it using
Code:
[root@markus root]rpm -ql rpm-build | grep /usr/lib/rpm/rpmb
/usr/lib/rpm/rpmb
So install the rpm-build rpm-package and you are ready to go
