Question Guide to build Mandrake RPMs


Hi,

I need to build some RPMs of programs that are not on Mandrake Contribs. Could someone be so kind to point me to a step-by-step tutorial.

Just to mention: Never built before an RPM (or any package) for Linux

Thanks in advance.

Lopo

Now that someone has posted a link to a step-by-step tutorial, you may be interested in a program which does have a step-by-step tutorial to using it it's called Checkinstall and I've found it to be the easiest way to make RPMs for my Mandrake boxes.
