I am trying to install the apache http server on a redhat 64 bit install that's running on VMWARE.
Apache doesn't provide an rpm.but they say I can convert the source tarball to an rpm using this command
rpmbuild -ts httpd-2.4.x.tar.bz2
From the apache website I downloaded httpd-2.4.3.tar.bz2
when I try the command above I get rpmbuild command not found.
So I try to install rpmbuild package. In the Applications->Add/Remove Software i search on rpmbuild and don't find anything.
I typed in yum install rpmbuild
and initially got
bash-3.2# yum install rpmbuild
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
Setting up Install Process
No package rpmbuild available.
Nothing to do
Then I went online and found a sample yum.conf file and replaced the one that I had in /etc and tried the same command and got these messages
[Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: core. Please verify its path and try again
I have a certain familiarity with Ubuntu, this is my first adventure with RedHat- and was forced on me due to an online course I am doing.
I'd surely appreciate any help.
