Description Edward J. Huff 2000-01-17 09:38:25 UTC
rpm --help vs. man rpm:

rpm --help output:
      --nobuild            - do not execute any stages

man rpm output:
       --test Do  not execute any build stages.  Useful for test-
              ing out spec files.

--test didn't work, probably --nobuild is correct.

Also the --help is more likely to be up-to-date.

In the man page:

       The general form of an rpm build command is

           rpm -[b|t]O [build-options] <package_spec>+

There should be a statement:  where package_spec is a file
such as those found in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-22 18:16:51 UTC
The rpm.8 man page has been rewritten in rpm-4.0.3, corrections above
should be in rpm-4.0.3-0.26 and later.
