Wrote spec file, installed RPM, binary gives relocation error and refers to build dir


I finally decided to get around to learning how to properly build an RPM. The RPM builds and puts everything where I want it to put things, but I get an error after I install it and run the app. The spec file and error are below.


armagetronad.spec:
Code:
Name: armagetronad
Version: 0.2.8.2.1
Release: 1.fc6
Summary: 3D Tron lightcycle game
Group: Amusement/Games
License: GPL
URL: http://www.armagetronad.net

Source: %{name}-%{version}.src.tar.bz2
Patch0: armagetronad-0.2.8.2-uninstall.patch
Buildroot: %{_tmproot}/%{name}-%{version}-root
BuildRequires: libstdc++-devel, zlib-devel, libpng-devel, libjpeg-devel
BuildRequires: SDL_image-devel, SDL_mixer-devel, SDL-devel, libxml2-devel
BuildRequires: libXt-devel, mesa-libGLU-devel

%description
A 3D Tron lightcycle game with an advanced AI and network play.

%prep
%setup
%patch0 -p1 -b .uninstall

%build
./configure \
    --enable-music \
    --disable-sysinstall \
    --disable-uninstall \
    --disable-games
%makeinstall
%{__install} -D -p -m 0644 desktop/%{name}.desktop \
    %{buildroot}/%{_datadir}/applications/%{name}.desktop
%{__install} -D -p -m 0644 desktop/icons/large/%{name}.png \
    %{buildroot}/%{_datadir}/pixmaps/%{name}.png
%{__mv} %{buildroot}/%{_datadir}/doc/%{name} \
    %{buildroot}/%{_datadir}/doc/%{name}-%{version}
    
%clean
rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT

%files
%defattr(-, root, root)
%config /etc/%{name}/*
%doc %{_datadir}/doc/%{name}-%{version}/*
%{_bindir}/%{name}
%{_datadir}/%{name}/*
%{_datadir}/applications/%{name}.desktop
%{_datadir}/pixmaps/%{name}.png


%changelog
(omitted)

the error:
Code:
$ armagetronad 
Error: Error in tString GeneratePrefix() in tools/tDirectories.cpp:1332 : 
        Relocation error. The binary was supposed to be installed into /home/hollywoodb/rpmbuild/BUILD/armagetronad-0.2.8.2.1-root/usr/bin and found itself in /usr/bin and could not find out what this means for the prefix /usr/local.

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see where you installed the binary under %makeinstall. Try adding:

Code:
%{__install} -D -m0755 %{name} %{buildroot}%{_bindir}/%{name}
under %makeinstall and see if that helps. You might have to tweak a thing or two in the example above, though, as I don't have the source to check it out.

Yeah, the issue was my misunderstanding of how %install and %makeinstall differ.

I've got it working now, the spec file is at http://rpm.offbeatlounge.com
