compiling programs in redhat 9.0


I try to rebuild sources in redhat but nothing happens...

I use command "rpm --rebuild *.src.rpm" but it says that there is no such a command like --rebuild or --recompile.

I read the manual and it says that rpm build should be installed...that it is removed for some reason which I do not understand. I couldnt find this update from update files or I didnt know which of them it is in redhat 9.0 update folder.

Please advice.

The '--rebuild' flag was removed from the rpm application. You should be using 'rpmbuild' now instead.

thanks, it works!! :-)

Once its seems to best to compile program before installation and use sources instead of ready rpm's is there any sense to compile whole operating system from sources...this is a time consuming process. :-)

But I have understood that this really could optimize my system and improve its system stability to totally new level. Am I right?
