Does anyone know where to find good, *recent* RPM docs?
$ rpm --version
RPM version 4.0.2
All of the docs I found linked from www.rpm.org seem rather old. In
particular, I was hoping that I could just use the online version(s) of
_Maximum_RPM_ and figure out the differences from there. I've got the start
of a .spec file, and I wanted to test it. Following the online docs, I tried
$ rpm -ba --test sample-1.0-1.spec
--test: unknown option
So I checked the man page. It lists the --test option. Then I tried
No --test option for building (-b)! Grrr.
$ rpm -qf /usr/share/man/man8/rpm.8.gz
$ rpm -qf `which rpm`
If you're going to distribute a package, at least distribute corresponding
Is there anything equivalent to "rpm -ba --test" in RPM 4?
