    Problems with rpm

    Hi! I am trying to install some packages.

    I have those packages on the form *.src.rpm.

    I can not install them.

    For instance:

    rpm --rebuild ucspi-tcp-0.88-1.src.rpm

    doesn't work and I get this error:

    ucspi-tcp-0.88-1.src.rpm: No such file or directory

    I have tried to do:

    rpm -i ucspi-tcp-0.88-1.src.rpm

    which work, but when I do:

    rpm -bb ucspi-tcp.spec

    I also get:

    ucspi-tcp.spec: No such file or directory

    I am not used to Redhat.

    Please help me.

    Best regards,

    rpm --rebuild is obsolete use: rpmbuild --rebuild <filename>

    Do you have the "rpm-build" package installed?

    If you are not in the same directory are the source rpm or spec file, you must use the full path.

    rpm --rebuild /full/path/to/source/rpm

    Thank you very much for your answers.

    I don't have the rpm-build package installed.

    I install it and try again.

    Thanks again.

    Best regards,
