Question rpm -ba => -b : unknown option


Hi
I use Fedora Core3 : 2.6.9-1.681_FC3.

I tried to follow step by step max-rpm(tutorial) from Redhat.
Chapter 11 speak about *.spec files and how to build them to get binary and source.

[root@localhost SPECS]# rpm -ba imlib2.spec
-b: option iconnue

I don't understand why because when i type the man command for rpm; it lists all 'b' options :
-ba Construire les paquetages binaires et sources (après avoir
effectué les étapes %prep, %build et %install).

-bb Construire un paquetage binaire (après avoir effectué les
étapes %prep, %build et %install).

-bp Exécuter l’étape « %prep » du fichier de spécifications. Nor-
malement, ceci implique de dépaqueter les sources et d’appli-
quer tous les patches.

-bc Effectuer l’étape « %build » du fichier de spécifications
(après avoir effectué l’étape %prep). Cela implique en général
l’équivalent d’un « make ».

-bi Effectuer l’étape « %install » du fichier de spécifications
(après avoir effectué les étapes %prep et %build). Cela
implique généralement l’équivalent d’un « make install ».

-bl Accomplir une « vérification de liste ». La section « %files »

Wrong forum, you may want to post the the Fedora forum...

Linux From Scratch does not use RPM

Thumbs down If you don't know...read other posts

It's not a shame to not know.
The shame is when you want to appear as Linux guru.

If you want to use package management with the linux from scratch project, we can point you at hints
( hints.linuxfromscratch.org ) and provide information (or point you to the right people) on how to write
your own RPM specs and create your own SRPMS to do a build per the linux from scratch book instructions
(a few LFS'ers have done this).

Do note this forum is for the "linux from scratch" (LFS) project.
See http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=95154

Personally I despise RPM. LFS is about manually bootstrapping a GNU/Linux system from scratch
using clean source.

I was just pointing out that if you are using Fedora and trying to build RPM's for Fedora,
you'll probably have better luck asking your question in a Fedora forum...

Regards
[R]
