Re: Using rpm as installer

Hi James

Thanks for your reply.. yes rpmbuild is working..:)

Now trying to create my special SPEC file I have done it as noarch and I
have removed all, build, prep, install and clean sections and have only
%file..Now I have following questions.

1 - When binary .rpm file id created.. does it contains all the files
defined in %file section?

2 - %file lists the files to be packaged

3 - I assume I don't need to have %install to install files as %file section
does the installation process.

4 - How do I define the directories in which the packaged files have to be
installed... in the target machine..

I need to know this very urgently and I will appreciate your quick response

Best Regards
