I'm going to try this question again. The first time I botched it and the answers I got were useless.
I want to use rpmdevtools to help with some packaging chores. There is no C5 version that I can find. I've located an SRC RPM in a location that is known to be C5 compatible. There are 2 versions of rpmdevtools:
naturally I grabbed the highest version (6.1) and rebuilt it for EL5. The installation halted, missing a version of rpm-build higher than the base version in C5. It seems that rpm-build 22.214.171.124+ comes from FC7. This is the first time that I've seen an FC6 repo package that depended on something from FC7.
rpmdevtools 5.3.1 builds, installs, and works fine on C5.
I think I made the right decisions here (balking at trying to install a higher version of rpm-build).
If you need to use rpmdevtools, how would you approach the problem? What source repo would you use? Is there an rhel5 SRC RPM? Where is it?
Got a little couch potato?
