yesterday I finally found the time to wrap up my own RPM package and upgrade
to the latest stable version. The goal was to provide a seamless upgrade
for some of my old systems that sill use RPM version 4.4.6 and 4.4.8.
I configured RPM with the following command (just for reference):
The rest of the build and install section follows the example spec file from
the source distribution. I only left the path once with my own macro path
argument, providing my own vendor macro file.
After the installation, I ran a "rpm -qa" to see what happens. It worked
quite will, RPM only spit out some warnings: "retrieved corrupted header".
My package list itself was complete, though. I used "rpm --rebuilddb"
hoping that this would fix the error, and yes, it did.
So, all in all, no upgrade problems here.
I hope this was useful.
Thanks for RPM 5,
