RPM for kcometen4-1.0.3 screensaver

Finally I finished the spec-file and could build the RPM for kcometen4-1.0.3

Build environment used: /usr/src/packages (on a clean system).
OS: x86_64 Intell (dual core)
SuSE 11.1 x86_64

The source file is: http://www.mehercule.net/kcometen4/kcometen4-1.0.3.tar.gz

(You can find it also on kde-look.org, section screensavers)

The spec-file named kcometen4.spec:

- RPM made from sourcefile

(You must have installed the development packages (base -, rpm-build -, kde -, kernel -, integrated development…)

  • copy source to /usr/src/packages/SOURCES
  • copy spec-file (with the name kcometen4.spec) to /usr/src/packages/SPECS
  • open a terminal and cd to /usr/src/packages/SPECS
  • enter the command: rpmbuild -ba kcometen4.spec

If everything went well, the RPM is written to /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64 and the src.rpm to /usr/src/packages/SRPMS

Note: If you get compiling errors, you probably need a local “.rpmrc” file. (to be placed in /home/your_name/)
I did NOT need this in my last attempts.
An example of a .rpmrc which I used in the first attempts:

I really hope that it will work on more systems than only on an Intell Dual core (x86_64), I could not test it on AMD/Athlon or other 64-bits systems.
Please don’t shoot me off when this is not working, I am not an expert.:shame:
Thanks! :wink:
