Description (last modified by anonymous)

For install package I need only for example:

Requires:      wget

cd /temp
# Download , link is copied from webside from link "start the download manually"
 wget http://downloads.activestate.com/ActivePerl/releases/

# Unzip tar.gz
 tar -zxvf ActivePerl-
# Entry to folder
 cd /ActivePerl-

# We install with install.sh script with all answers yes for all questions in script
 echo yes | ./install.sh --license-accepted

 export PATH=$PATH:/opt/ActivePerl-5.18/site/bin:/opt/ActivePerl-5.18/bin
 export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/opt/ActivePerl-5.18/site/man:/opt/ActivePerl-5.18/man

# Out from folder
 cd ..

# Remove trash
 rm -rf ActivePerl-
 rm -f  ActivePerl-

# postun executed just after uninstalling the package
 rm -f /opt/ActivePerl-5.18

But but seems to rpmbuild want code source , I don't have code sorce. More and more often I use binary (portable binary for all linux) or precompiled binary, but I want add this to rpm data base, so I need build/pack to rpm package. Can I ask for improvement to build rpm packages like this or similarly ? Because I have problem build package like above. :(

If is easy build package rpm like this with binary file, please write example .spec file. :)


I found example http://www.advenage.com/topics/binary-RPM.php

But problem is put commands to .spec file because rpmbuild trying run this command. I don't want run wget and check files with rpmbuild.

  • I can withstand it

I have problem, when I want run " install.sh ", but I don't want run it with rpmbuild.
