rpmrebuild is a tool to build an RPM file from a package that has already been installed. It can be used to easily build modified packages, and works on any Linux distribution that uses RPM.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: This release fixes a problem with rpm 4.10 (Fedora 18): "error: incorrect format: invalid field width".
Release Notes: This is a small feature release. Rpmrebuild can now handle the optional RPM tags SUGGESTS and ENHANCES. Two new options are available to choose the POSIX capabilities source, cap-from-fs and cap-from-db. The rpm package can be built from tar.gz using the rpmbuild -tb command.
Release Notes: This is a big feature release. The POSIX capability is added. RPM version 5 is supported. A new plugin is added to solve the problems with prelink. A new environment variable, RPMREBUILD_OPTS, can be used to pass arguments to the program. Building for a different architecture is now supported (building a 32-bit package on a 64-bit platform, for example).
Release Notes: This release fixes a blocking bug that occurred when working on source packages or on ghost files.
Release Notes: Support for broken symlinks was added. Support was added for obsolete versions and flags to fix problems on Fedora 14. Rpmrebuild can work with rpm 3 again, but an rpm package is not provided for rpm version 3.
