Re: error: missing ':' (found 0x25) at /home/builder/.rpmrc:24



Circa 2003-01-08 07:35:29 -0500 dixit Ted Kaczmarek:

: I am using mharris's rpmbuild-nonroot setup. Everything was working
: great and now I am getting this error.
: 
: error: missing ':' (found 0x25) at /home/builder/.rpmrc:24

That means that line 24 of /home/builder/.rpmrc contains a '%' (ASCII
character 0x25) where RPM expects to find a ':' instead.  Sounds like
you put a macro definition in ~/.rpmrc instead of ~/.rpmmacros where it
belongs.

: Googled to no avail, any help would be appreciated.

Your best bet in these situations is to read and understand the error
message; this one is actually relatively clear and helpful as far as
RPM goes.
