Creating the Eprints RPM requires root, because the process involves creating the eprints user and group.

Install rpm-build (depending on your package manager):

up2date rpm-build
yum install rpm-build

Download the Eprints source file (eprints-x.x.x.tar.gz, version 3.0.1 and above).

Create the RPM and source RPMs (will error if there are any missing dependencies):

rpmbuild -ta eprints-x.x.x.tar.gz

The RPMs should be written to /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/ and /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS/.

.rpmmacros

%_signature     gpg
%_gpg_path      /root/.gnupg
%_gpg_name      rpm.eprints.org

%_rpmdir        /root/rpm.eprints.org/repo/base
%_srcrpmdir     /root/rpm.eprints.org/repo/base/SRPMS

Signing RPMs

Install GPG if not already:

yum install gnupg

Create a personal key:

gpg --gen-key

Add the key name to .rpmmacros.

Sign one or more RPM packages:

rpm --resign xxx.rpm

See http://fedoranews.org/tchung/gpg/ for how to create a GPG key pair and signing an RPM. To avoid key warnings when using up2date or Yum all RPMs need to be signed, and the public key imported into the local system.

Building a Yum repository

Install createrepo from http://linux.duke.edu/projects/metadata/:

yum install createrepo

To create the repository structure:

createrepo .

Copy RPMs below /base/

Re-run createrepo to update the metadata.

Create a yum configuration RPM
