Linux RedHat How To Create An RPM Package

1. Install Required RPM-Build Packages

 
 
 
$yum install rpm-build rpmdevtools
 
 
 

2. Create the directory structure

 
 
 
$rpmdev-setuptree
 
 
 

The directory structure will look like this

 
$ls -l rpmbuild/
total 24
drwxr-x--- 4 root root 4096 Nov 6 11:59 BUILD
drwxr-x--- 2 root root 4096 Nov 6 12:00 BUILDROOT
drwxr-x--- 3 root root 4096 Nov 6 11:20 RPMS
drwxr-x--- 2 root root 4096 Nov 6 11:03 SOURCES
drwxr-x--- 2 root root 4096 Nov 6 11:58 SPECS
drwxr-x--- 2 root root 4096 Nov 6 12:00 SRPMS
 

3. Create rpmmacro File

 
 
 

~/.rpmmacros

 
 
 
%packager YOUR_NAME

%_topdir %(echo $HOME)/rpmbuild

%_smp_mflags %( \
    [ -z "$RPM_BUILD_NCPUS" ] \\\
        && RPM_BUILD_NCPUS="`/usr/bin/nproc 2>/dev/null || \\\
                             /usr/bin/getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN`"; \\\
    if [ "$RPM_BUILD_NCPUS" -gt 16 ]; then \\\
        echo "-j16"; \\\
    elif [ "$RPM_BUILD_NCPUS" -gt 3 ]; then \\\
        echo "-j$RPM_BUILD_NCPUS"; \\\
    else \\\
        echo "-j3"; \\\
    fi )

%__arch_install_post \
    [ "%{buildarch}" = "noarch" ] || QA_CHECK_RPATHS=1 ; \
    case "${QA_CHECK_RPATHS:-}" in [1yY]*) /usr/lib/rpm/check-rpaths ;; esac \
    /usr/lib/rpm/check-buildroot
 
 
 

4. Copy your script and files under SOURCES directory

 
 
 
 
 
$cd ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES
$ls -l myadminscript-1/
total 8
-rwx------ 1 root root 31 Nov 12 09:53 myscript.sh
-rw-r----- 1 root root 24 Nov 12 09:54 README.md
 
 
 
 
 

5. Create a tarball of your code.

 
$tar -czf myadminscript-1.tar.gz myadminscript-1
 
 
 

6. 6. Create SPEC File

 
 
 

~/rpmbuild/SPECS/myadminscript.spec

 
 
 
 
 
Name:  myadminscript
Version: 1
Release: 1

7. Build RPM

 
$rpmbuild -ba ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/myadminscript.spec 
 
 
 

Sample Output

 
 
 
$rpmbuild -ba ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/myadminscript.spec

8. After successful built, a rpm file will created like ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/myadminscript-1-1.noarch.rpm
