Smile cannot stat 'test.h': No such file or directory why?


Hi
I'm a new linux user and use ubuntu. I have tried to build a RPM package and followed the steps at http://searchenterpriselinux.techtar...kages-in-Linux

and I removed the following lines from spec
BuildRequires: /bin/rm, /bin/mkdir, /bin/cp
Requires: /bin/bash, /bin/date

But when Im building RMP I get "cannot stat 'test.h': No such file or directory"

Thanks in advane
Merh

sounds like a typo somewhere.

isnt it supposed to be 'test.sh'? so search your thing for 'test.h' and change it to 'test.sh'

Also - why are you building an RPM on a Ubuntu system?

Just before we go anyfurther, want to confirm that you know that RPM packages are generally meant for Red Hat or SUSE variants of Linux? whereas ubuntu is branched off from the Debian side. deb or dpkg would be the alternatives for ubuntu I believe.

Hi
I correct the type to .sh. but the same problem. I test in both Redhat and ubuntu. In Redhat I'm not root user.

Ok, so is this the redhat box or the ubuntu box you are testing this on? also can you supply the command you are running for when you see the issues? With output.

there is an edit button. What does `tar -tf ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/test-1.0.tar.gz` return?

Primary reason for the issue is that the article is crap. Its wrong. The spec file he uses is wrong.

So here. Here is my re-interpretation.

Code:
(Log in as a non-root user)
mkdir ~/test-1.0
cd ~/test-1.0
echo echo this is a test > test.sh
chmod +x test.sh
echo just launch the script > README
cd
mkdir -p ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES
mkdir -p ~/rpmbuild/SPECS
tar -cvzf ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/test-1.0.tar.gz test-1.0
cp test-1.0/* ~/rpmbuild/BUILD
vim ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/demo.spec
The demo.spec file contents:
Code:
Name:               test
Version:            1.0
Release:           1%{?dist}
Summary:         A test package

Source0:           %{name}-%{version}.tar.gz
BuildRoot:        %(mktemp -ud %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-XXXXXX)
