How to create file "kernel-source-version.rpm

How to create file "kernel-source-version.rpm from "kernel-version.src.rpm" or "linux-.version.tar.gz"?

I try "rpmbuild -ba --target=i686 kernel-version.src.rpm", and it takes a "long time", and failure finally.

Is there a guide for this?

thanks firstly!!!

Visit the RedHat website. Somewhere under Documentation, you will find Maximum RPM, a 700+ page book about rpm: everything, literally EVERYTHING about rpm. That includes how to make and edit a spec file to change the name of the resultant .rpm or .src.rpm when building source or binary rpms. See especially chapter 11 (building packages) and chapter 13 (package naming tags).
