Red Hat I know what you're thinking, but don't worry. This article isn't 'Yet Another Red Hat 8.0 Review'. This article is primarily about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a newbie, but it's also about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a KDE user. Why? I happen to be a KDE user, so it makes sense I'd focus more on what I know the most about. Plus, I still remember the frustration of staring with something akin to terror at a blank command line with lots of ideas about what I'd like to do and very little knowledge of how to do it.

Compiling Source RPMs
by Kevin on Tue 8th Oct 2002 16:33 UTC

You don't have to install a Source RPM to compile it. You can just use the rpmbuild command like:

rpmbuild --rebuild <name of>.src.rpm

When it completes, just go to /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386 and there you will find the now compiled rpms.
