Are these terminal or GUI programs?Originally Posted by shaun680
Are these programs executable only by the root user?
Did you add the menu entries yourself? Have you tried using the full path to the executable when you add the menu entry. Maybe the programs are not being installed in your path.
This only creates a binary rpm. It does not install it. You still need to install the binary rpm that is created by using rpm --rebuild.while logged in as root. Also the same thing happened when I installed a src.rpm by rpm --rebuild file.rpm. Any help would be much appreciated.
P.S. rpm --rebuild is depreciated use: rpmbuild --rebuild.
