Description gman 1999-11-22 22:45:46 EST
I was trying to compile a source rpm on a Sparc Ultra5 and it failed only
because rpm would not write in the /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/sparc64 directory.
Just thought it would be nice that directory in the next release/package
release... or fix it so it lands in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/sparc instead.

I was trying to compile the openssl 0.9.4-2 src rpm..
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-11-23 08:46:59 EST
Rpm-3.0.3 will create a non-existent sparc64 directory if it doesn't
exist. (Note: it will create *only* the last component of the path, not
the entire path).

Otherwise, this is a configurayion issue. Change the value of the macro

%_rpmfilename           %%{ARCH}/%%{NAME}-%%{VERSION}-%%{RELEASE}.%%{ARCH}.rpm

to put binary rpm's wherever you wish.
