Which I want to install in the rpm build root in my home directory (so
it is not in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES):
drwxrwxr-x 7 rlc rlc 4096 Jan 5 00:36 rpmbuild
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rlc rlc 135 Jan 5 00:36 .rpmmacros
For a kernel build, does doing this make sense? Or should I be
installing to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES and /usr/src/redhat/SPECS?
Since you have the rpmbuild stuff set up, something like:
$ rpmbuild --recompile -bp --target i6867 kernel-2.6.14-1.1656_FC4.src.rpm
will install the source. --rebuild or --recompile are needed in order to
work from a src.rpm rather than a specfile.
How does one use a custom config with rebuild? I need to turn on a
bunch of things (moxa driver for instance).
