Thanks jebba. The howto specifies `yum install fedora-rpmdevtools unifdef`. Which one do we pick from below?
Code:
apt-cache search rpm| grep dev
rpm-devel - Development files for manipulating RPM packages.
rpmdevtools - RPM Development Tools


Also
Quote:
Create your rpmbuild directory as follows:

cd ~
cp -a /usr/src/redhat/ rpmbuild

Code:
[jayeola@acid ~]$ ls /usr/src/
[jayeola@acid ~]$

So you can see that it's empty. Does this matter?

Code:
 cat /etc/issue
BLAG release 59999.00000 (POST)
Kernel \r on an \m

It'll be created by rpmdevtools install, I believe.
