Recreating RPMs from their installed components


Hi,

Redhat ES3 U4:

Here's a wild and crazy idea: is it possible to recreate an RPM from it's installed components (ie the output of 'rpm -ql my-package-0.1'? I suppose at it's simplest I could simply tar up the output of rpm -ql, but if there's a feature of RPM that would do this, that would be great.

The reason I want to do this is I want to install a package on server B that exists on server A, but I do not have, and cannot find on the net / rhn etc, the RPM for it.

Thanks,
Jon

There's rpm --rebuild but what you want, what you really, really want is http://rpmrebuild.sourceforge.net/
