NAME rpmerizor - build an rpm package from installed files VERSION 2.5 DESCRIPTION Rpmerizor is a script that allows you to create an RPM package from installed files. You simply have to specify files on the command line and answering a few interactive questions to fill rpm meta-data (package name, version ...). You can also use it in batch mode with command line options for meta-data. USAGE to build an rpm from installed files : rpmerizor {options} file|dir [file|dir [file|dir]] to build an rpm from a chrooted directory which contain only the software you want to package rpmerizor --rootdir directory REQUIRED ARGUMENTS Files and directories to include in rpm package Files are included as they are on their current filesystem. Only include dirs that should be _owned_ by the package. Since 2.2 version, giving a directory means giving all files under it : this is recursive OPTIONS --help : show short help text --man : show full help text --Version : display rpmerizor version and exit --verbose : better rpm build diagnostics --buildall : build also src.rpm package --edit_spec : build spec file and edit it using EDITOR variable --spec_only : build spec file and exit --sign : sign rpm package with your gpg key --list_group : display the list of available rpm groups --exclude 'foo[|bar]: give a pattern to exclude some files --rootdir dir : include all files as chrooted to dir directory. In this case, name and version meta-data are guessed from directory name --compat : build rpm package with compatibility with old rpm release (md5) --default : fill release and group with default values --stdin : read file list from stdin. in this case, you have to give all meta-data from command line. meta-informations for batch use --name pack_name: package name --version number : package version --release number : package release --group rpm_group : package group (use --list_group to list all values) --summary "package summary": short one line description --description "package description": multi-line description --buildarch arch : (optionnal) should be one of noarch/i386/i586/x86_64/... --url http://website : (optionnal) url of project --packager "your name" : (optionnal) name of rpm packager DEPENDENCIES rpm, perl AUTHOR initial author : Paul Miller current maintener : Eric Gerbier url : http://freshmeat.net/projects/rpmerizor LICENSE AND COPYRIGHT Copyright (C) 2001 by Paul Miller This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version. EXAMPLES rpmerizor /opt/software /etc/software.conf will ask for meta informations and build rpm rpmerizor -buildall /opt/software /etc/software.conf will ask for meta informations and build rpm and src.rpm rpmerizor -e /opt/software /etc/software.conf will ask for meta informations, edit specfile and build rpm rpmerizor -name software -version 1.0 -release 1 -group rpmerizor \ -summary "software is ..." -description "software is ... " /opt/software /etc/software.conf will build rpm without any question (batch mode) rpmerizor -name software -version 1.0 -default \ -summary "software is ..." -description "software is ... " /opt/software /etc/software.conf will build rpm without any question (batch mode), release and group use default value rpmerizor --spec_only /opt/software /etc/software.conf rpmbuild -bb --buildroot=/tmp/rpmerizor_buildroot software.spec will first build the specfile, then build rpm package from specfile rpmerizor --exclude 'foo|bar' /opt/software will package files under /opt/software and exclude all files/directories which contain 'foo' or 'bar' rpmerizor --rootdir /tmp/foo-2.0/ will build a package with all files under /tmp/foo-2.0/, but remove '/tmp/foo-2.0/' from path if /tmp/foo-2.0 looks like : /tmp/foo-2.0 |-- etc | `-- foo.conf `-- usr `-- local |-- bin | `-- foo.bin `-- lib `-- foo.so the rpm package will be named foo, will be version 2.0, release 1 and will contain the files: /etc/foo.conf /usr/local/bin/foo.bin /usr/local/lib/foo.so rpmerizor --rootdir /tmp/foo-2.0/ --compat build on fedora 14 (for example) for redhat/centos compatibility cat list | rpmerizor --stdin --default -name foo --version 1.2b --summary foo --description "toto" get list of directories/file from a pipe DIAGNOSTICS rpmerizor uses the prefix WARNING and ERROR for diagnostics EXIT STATUS 0 if all is OK >= 1 if the script detect a problem CONFIGURATION no configuration file yet INCOMPATIBILITIES it is designed to work with rpm version 4 and greater BUGS AND LIMITATIONS you can send your bug reports to gerbier@users.sourceforge.net ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES to edit the specfile, the code use EDITOR if exists. Else, it use the vi editor SEE ALSO if you want to build an rpm package from a tar file, which contain a makefile, you should use checkinstall (http://asic-linux.com.mx/~izto/checkinstall/)
