You need to create a spec file and then build the package using rpmbuild. If you have never created your own spec files and built rpms, then you will have to look at documentation at and the fedora developers guide.

hello ,
Actually I wrote the spec file and also had a successful build
but it was not running ,giving the error
"segmentation fault"
The binary gflashplayer as a tar ball is working but I wrote an rpm, it is not working giving "segmentation fault"
So,I can't understand,why that same binary is not working in rpm
Please look over it and solve it
