Download EPrints Releases: http://files.eprints.org/view/type/release.html

up2date rpm-build
yum install -y 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/
