Building RPM's

I have been used to build software from source for I don't know how many years, actually I think since I started using Linux, which was in 1993-94 (Slackware 1).

But as I have to maintain more than one server, with the same packages on them, I have started looking into how to build <a href="rpm">rpm</a>'s. And now I'm at it why not make them yum

fedoranews.org is a good place to start if you want to build your own rpm's. Thomas Chung have some very good tutorials on how to build rpm's from binary distributions (which do not provide rpm's).

Oh, year Happy New Year.
