Description of problem:
I should like to build my own rpm package from following source tarball:
ftp://188.8.131.52/cn/nic/rtl8111brtl8168b/linux-r1000(103).zip derived from
But original name can't be used in rpm due to faults on decompress stage in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Last FC5 official build.
Try to write simple specfile with given URL as Source0.
The given name is possible at least in the *nix file systems.
Adding parentheses in file names is asking for trouble, as the parentheses
will need escaping everywhere that the file is used in scripts.
Rename the tar ball when packaging, leaving a comment describing what was done:
# renamed from ftp://184.108.40.206/cn/nic/rtl8111brtl8168b/linux-r1000(103).zip
