I'm trying to install my ipchains rpm, but I get this error message:

missing ':' (found 0x00) at /root/.rpmrc:1

I think I set up my .rpmrc file correctly, but here it is:


buildarchtranslate: i386: i686
buildarchtranslate: i486: i686
buildarchtranslate: i586: i686
buildarchtranslate: i686: i686

Can anybody tell me why I can't get an RPM to work? Thanks!

Wait, I figured it out. I had a brain fart, but it works now.
