Re: Building rpms on AMD64

The trick for using rpmbuild seems to be that /usr/X11R6/bin must be in the path - otherwise rpmbuild just fails on x86_64. It seems to OK to have this directory last place in the path though.

If I were you - I would check to make sure you also do not have 32-bit
X libraries installed.  Part of the full installation you selected
installs compat packages allowing you to build for different
platforms.  If removing the 32-bit libraries helps, send the solution
back to the user list.

A silly question: How does one build or rebuild src rpms under x86_64?

On a freshly installed FC3 (full install) nearly everything fails to build
as configure looks at the wrong X11 libraries. As an example, rebuilding

$ rpmbuild --rebuild mozilla-1.7.5-3.src.rpm
...lines deleted...
checking GLIB_LIBS...   -lglib-2.0
configure: error:  Could not find the following X libraries:  -lX11 -lXext -lXt
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.13288 (%build)

Modifying the spec-file to add a line like this cures the problem:


But this is probably too crude - what is the proper incantation to make
rpmbuild understand where the X11 libraries are placed on x86_64?
