More to come on this…

Move/Copy Updated/JDK into SOURCES

If you building on a remote machine you’ll need to transfer the files to that build server via SCP or some other preferred method

mv tzupdater-1_3_45-2011n.zip ~/rpms/SOURCES/
mv jdk-6u31-linux-x64.bin  ~/rpms/SOURCES/

Download java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0.31-1.0.cf.nosrc.rpm

This is being performed on your build server. We will download directly to the SRPM build directory to keep things clean

wget wget http://mirror.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/java/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0.31-1.0.cf.nosrc.rpm ~/rpms/SRPMS/

Build Sun Java RPMs

rpmbuild --rebuild ~/rpms/SRPMS/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0.31-1.0.cf.nosrc.rpm

After completion you should have the following RPMs in ~/rpms/RPMS/x86_64

  • java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0.31-1.0.cf.x86_64.rpm
  • java-1.6.0-sun-demo-1.6.0.31-1.0.cf.x86_64.rpm
