Did you ever get a response to this?  I have a similar situation where I want to gather up a handful of files from various places on a build machine into an RPM and then install them into specific locations on a target machine.

 having problems wrapping a simple jar file in rpm

hello all,

need help wrapping a simple jar file in an rpm.

all of the examples i have found assume that you are going to create the rpm from source code.

for my application - i already have the "built" jar file and want to distribute it to a user as an rpm.

when i try to build the rpm - i get the following error:

Processing files: maximus-2.0.0-1.i586
error: File not found: /home/mark/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/maximus-2.0.0-1.i386/home/mark/PWMP-EJB.jar

RPM build errors:
    File not found: /home/mark/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/maximus-2.0.0-1.i386/home/mark/PWMP-EJB.jar

the single jar that i am trying to package up is really located in /home/mark/ on my build machine.

also - how do i specify that the contents of the rpm should "land" in a specific directory - example /var/sns/install-

thank you,

here is my spec

mark at gecko3 rpmbuild > cat ./SPECS/mark.spec 

Summary: Maximus utility for handling everything
Name: maximus
Version: 2.0.0
Release: 1
License: GPL
Group: Development/Tools
echo -e "i am in postrun \n"

here are the settings in my .rpmmacros file
mark at gecko3 rpmbuild > cat ~/.rpmmacros 
%packager      mark meyer <mmeyer at primexinc.com>
%vendor        Primex Wireless
%_topdir       /home/mark/rpmbuild/
