RPM Spec file creation, %files section question


Under the %files section, how do I know what are the files (with their complete path) to be listed here? Eg.

Thanks !
PS. What's the difference between running this command

ls -l && cat somefile

and

ls -l ; cat somefile

They seem to give the same output.

Thumbs up

ls -l && cat somfile --> "cat somefile" will execute only when "ls -l" is success otherwise "cat somefile" will not execute --this is called as condional execution.

ls -l ; cat somefile --> This does excute the commands consequently.without looking for regard less of 1st sucess or failure.

Thankx
Arun
