How do I re-package a .src.rpm to mdk.rpm


How do I re-package a .src.rpm to mdk.rpm

Hi, I'm having a bit of trouble getting the ati drivers to install and have resorted to using a plf file to try again but it doesn't leave any traces after the install.

I had to install mesaGLU and the dev lib and the libMesaGLU.

I haven't had 3D drivers setup before with Mandy 2006.0 and would like to now.

I've tried with the .run file from schneider-digital.de
and from ati with errors at the sh make.sh stage in the /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod directory.

Anyway, I thought if I tried some others it might work.

So, how to I change the .src.rpm file to a mdk.i586.rpm file?

rpmbuild --rebuild <some.src.rpm>
You need to install the rpmbuild package and some compiler e.g. gcc to do that.
