rpm --rebuild


im trying to set up qmail here and in the documentation it says that i need to do this

2) Run the command

rpm --rebuild var-qmail-create-1.03-102memphis.src.rpm

This creates var-qmail-create-1.03-102memphis.i386.rpm.

i ran rpm --rebuild but its says --rebuild: unknow option

ps. im running redhat 9.0

please advice, thanks in advance

RedHat split the rebuild out into it's own program... rpmbuild, or some-such. Use it instead of rpm --rebuild.
