Post A walkthrough for KRPMbuilder: Building tsemgr for Suse

Okay I was wondering if someone could give me a walkthrough of what to do to make tsemgr a rpm that will work with OpenSuse 10.1. The reason being is that I like to be able to see what I have installed so I like to do everything as RPM... if that makes sense? If there is a way of doing this without installing everything like this I'd appreciate it.

I downloaded the tar.gz of tsemgr, a program for connecting to Sony Ericsson phones. The help is greatly appreciated!

Use checkinstall to make an rpm of a tarball when you install it. You may have checkinstall installed already. From a console, do 'locate checkinstall' to see if you have it installed.

If it isn't, it's probably on your installation media. Use YaST2 -> Software -> Install and Remove. Select Package Groups from the dropdown selection box. Scroll to the bottom and click on zzzall to get the full list regardless of group. Scroll down the the C's to find checkinstall.

See the man pages for checkinstall, and the README for more info on how to use it.
