rpmbuild


Anyone know how to install rpmbuild from the source libraries (/usr/lib/librpmbuild-4.2.so) in redhat 9? I've been trying but I can't figure it out.

I need to use the rpmbuild command so I can build the drivers for my ehternet device.

I think it would be easiest to just install the package it's in, rpm-build*.i386.rpm.

Ok well the thing is I'm trying to install the drivers for my device. By following the README instructions for my drivers I needed to:

rpm -ivh myrpmpackage.src.rpm

Ok so I did that, but then the README goes on to say after that I need to build the drivers using the rpm -bb command.

But if you read the rpm man pages theres a legacy issue with rpm and building drivers hence the need to use the command rpmbuild instead. But rpmbuild didn't come pre-installed on my redhat 9 so I need to insall it so I can then build the drivers for my device.
