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 : 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 `-- 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/ 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 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 (
