Description Alan Hourihane 2013-03-22 11:38:26 UTC
It would be nice if an RPM could be built when building a package, just as "buildpkg" can be set as a FEATURE to build a binary package.

Thanks !

       RPMDIR = [path]
              Defines the location where created RPM packages will be stored.
              Defaults to ${PORTDIR}/rpm.

Somehow I can't get that to work, but it should suffice if it did work.

I know "ebuild xxxx.ebuild rpm" works and makes the RPM package. But that means building the package again.

I'd like to just add ...

FEATURES="buildpkg rpm"

and then do ...

emerge xxxxx

and it auto-generates the RPM (from the rpm FEATURE), and also the TAR.GZ (from the buildpkg FEATURE).

I already use the latter.

Since 2.2.0 we have a PORTAGE_BINPKG_FORMAT variable that you can set in make.conf, and also emerge --pkg-format;a=commit;h=73a972e0cac5d7e5f59a58c11e998793fe2b1a2d
