Subject Re: Building an RPM for Red Hat EL / Fedora
Date Tue, 13 Jul 2010 05:33:43 GMT
I saw the spec file in 0.10 but wasnt sure on the steps needed to build an rpm from that (guess
I need to RTFM on rpmbuild).

But your rpm would be a huge help as I believe I should be able to unpack and tinker with
it until I get it down.
