Missing command /usr/bin/rpmbuild
Last modified: 2010-08-10 06:02:12 EDT
Description of problem:
/usr/bin/rpmbuild is missing in F14 (I found it in F13 in /usr/bin). Additionally, there are only 2 manpages for rpmbuils available:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
bash: /usr/bin/rpmbuild: No such file or directory
# yum install rpm-build
What gets installed depends on the defaults of a given distro version + choices you make during the installation, rpm-build package wont get installed on a "plain desktop" installation (nor should it).
Oh and yes there's a (known) packaging bug wrt the translated rpmbuild manual pages which should go into rpm-build package but that's another story.
thanks for the support. You are right, I installed only a plain-desktop F14. "yum install rpm-build" was the right hint.
