Re: rpm spec file - buildroot

I'm back with another question about rpm spec files.  This time I'm trying to
compile Vice (the Commodore 64 emulator).  Vice actually comes with a vice.spec
file in the tarball, but it's out-of-date and doesn't really work any more.

The point that I'm stuck at is this:  I have managed to get the actual
compiling process to work but when I get to the "install" portion I get the
following errors:
Are you saying rpmbuild -ba x.spec is generating these errors ?

IMO, make install might need additional parameters to cause it to insert the compiled files into the build-root, or you may need to properly setup the rpm environment for devel, so that $RPM_BUILD_ROOT is within your temporary build area, not your live system.

Fedora has a strong policy on package development; one item is the necessity of:
BuildRoot: %(mktemp -ud %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-XXXXXX)

yum install redhat-rpm-config

set your ~/.rpmmacros file with:
%_topdir /home/you/src/redhat

create the structure found at /usr/src/redhat/RPMS  etc. in the topdir.
