    Red Hat 8.0 equivalent command

    The nForce driver source installation page contains the following:
    example% cd <directory with the rpm file>
    example% su
    Password: ******
    example# rpm --rebuild nforce{package name}-1.0-1.src.rpm

    At this point, the SRPM will be recompiled. When this command has completed, look for a line that says:

    Wrote: /usr/src/{RPM root dir}/RPMS/i386/nforce{package name}-1.0-1.rpm
    In Red Hat 7.1 the command "rpm --rebuild <source_file_name.rpm>" is valid. Unfortunately the "--rebuild" option does not exist for Red Hat 8.0 and later. What is the equivalent in Red Hat 8.0? Responders should be advised that the command "rpm --rebuilddb <source_file_name.rpm>" produces the following error message in run levels 1 & 5.

    error: db4 error(16) from dbenv->remove: Device or resource busy

    Two years later and I am still fighting the Soltek/nVidia I/O problem.

    It seems that they used the command.

    rpmbuild

    you might want to do a man page on that...let us know if that works.

    They did not use "rpmbuild" but I did and it worked.
