Re: Spec file options???



Circa 2003-01-17 07:48:54 -0800 dixit da_alchemist@yahoo.com:

: Will someone tell me what the -q option means for:
: 
: %prep
: %setup -q

"quiet".  The difference is:[*]

  %setup    -> gzip -dc "%{SOURCE0}" |tar -xvf -
  
  %setup -q -> gzip -dc "%{SOURCE0}" |tar -xf -

: I could not find it documented in Maximum RPM.

There is much that is not documented in Maximum RPM.  Some of that is
documented in /usr/share/doc/rpm-X.X.X/ (or a similar location,
depending on your system).  Some of it is documented in
http://www.redhat.com/mailing-lists/rpm-list/.

Good luck.
