Building RPM's from Sources in RH 7.3


Hi
I am having heaps of trouble trying to build arpm from a source rpm.
I have updated to the latest kernel for RH 7.3 and I have been trying to build a rpm from the Nvidia Kernel Source so i can update my Nvidia Drivers.

What is the correct proceedures for doing the above as I keep getting "No such file or directory" errors.

Michael

# rpm -ivh something.src.rpm
# cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
# rpm -bb something.spec
# cd ../RPMS/{arch}/
# ls

There are your .RPM packages...

Optionally add --target {arch} after the -bb to build binaries for specific CPU architectures, ie: i686, athlon, etc...
