RPM Question / help
We would like to use rpm to distribute an application to various Red Hat servers on our network.

All we need for the rpm file to do is contain a copy of the file system that the application resides in and when the rpm is installed, check for free space and create the directory, then lay out the application contents.

We could simply tar up the directory and lay it out, but for reasons I won't go into here (we were told to use rpm), we'd like to make this an rpm distribution.

All the rpm doc we are finding details more than we need for our simple task. Is there an easy way to build an rpm like this? Just take the contents of a directory and bundle it up??

Haven't used it but it appears this project is designed for what you're talking about:
