Thread: Installing with tar

    mdwatts: you fixed my problem! I had to go
    cd packagename
    Thanx! ;D david in san diego
    Your quite welcome. Glad I could help.

    That's what I figured your problem was.

    If you have a rpm based distro, you can sometimes build a binary rpm out of a tar.gz package. It doesn't always work. If compiling from source (tar.gz) fails, then building a rpm package from the tar.gz will also fail.

    rpm -tb packagename-#.#.#.tar.gz

    If successful, the resulting binary rpm will be in /usr/src/<your distro>/RPMS/i386
