Hi,

What is the name of the rpmbuild package?

I've tried download rpmbuild with yum like this

yum install rpmbuild , but it says no package is available by that name....

I would like to build a rpm from the open vpn 1.5 source


Sincerely

Hi,

Well I've found it, it's rpm-build

so the command would be yum install rpm-build...

[I wan't to build a rpm so that other software that may depend on OpenVPN packages will actually see that the OpenVPN rpm is installed , and it's there].


Sincerely

Hi,

I have another problem

when I'm doing this : rpmbuild -tb openvpn.tar.bz

configure: error: OpenSSL Crypto headers not found.
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.37655 (%build)


RPM build errors:
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.37655 (%build)
[root@test1 home]# mc

but I've installed OpenSLL
like this
./config
make test
make install
[and it installed itself without any errors]

What am I missing here?

Sincerely

Hi,

I've found out that I needed kerberos devel , I've checked it, I have that to...

now I did a updatedb
locate ssl.h

and found it at a few places...

tried again, and it congiured itself correctly...

the problem is

I'm following a guide on how to make a vpn connection with 2 bridges...

and it says that ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-pthreads --enable-mtu-dynamic
I've changed ./configure to ./config ....but it won't work this way , so I just used ./config hope this won't cause me any troubles...

Hi,

I think I did something wrong,

there is no openvpn on my computer...

when I type openvpn it shows nothing?

also once installed, how do you build your key?

Sincerely

You can probably insall Dag Wieers' openvpn package on Whitebox....I would not install via yum, but download the rhel 3 package from here:

http://dag.wieers.com/packages/openvpn/

and try rpm -Uvh openvpn-1.5.0-0.rhel3.dag.i386.rpm
