Scott, > When you create these RPMs are you simply doing it with a rpm -ta on > our tarballs? Or are you doing something more than that? I found a few errors in the spec file included with the tarball. I made a number of changes to the spec file to get it up to date. You are welcome to include my changes and/or RPM on the official site. I will admit I didn't do the best job on the spec file as I was more interested in getting it working than making it perfect. > Are there other considerations?

For the most part binary rpms are distribution and version specific. Source RPMS should be rebuildable across distros, versions and architectures. - James
