RPM package bundle problem.

Because in %post $RPM_BUILD_ROOT turns out to be "/", so in this spec,I used directly %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root instead of $RPM_BUILD_ROOT

	rpm -Uvh %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root%{bundledir}/log4c-1.2.1-1.i386.rpm
	rpm -Uvh %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root%{bundledir}/abc-1.0-1.i386.rpm

I checked the existence of log4c-1.2.1-1.i386.rpm and abc-1.0-1.i386.rpm in %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root%{bundledir} and they are there.
I need an all-in-one installer , not 2 single installer. Thank Nigel for your reply.

At the point when you run the %post the files are *not* in  
$RPM_BUILD_ROOT but instead under root (/).

Plus you should not be running another rpm transaction within an rpm  
transaction - it might work (depending on the version of rpm), or it  
might fail with locking issues, or it might completely corrupt your  
rpm database.

You should do this with dependancies and a proper package management  
tool (ie yum etc) rather than abusing raw rpm.
