rpmbuild is not installing the software

Hello everyone,

I am trying to install heartbeat via rpm/rpmbuild and I am having an unusual problem.

I am running Fedora 7 on this box and this is the steps that I am taking:

1. downloading the software "heartbeat-2.0.8-1.fc7.src.rpm" into directory "/usr/src/redhat/SRPMS/"

2. I am unpacking the source rpm file using the command "rpm -i /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS/heartbeat-2.0.8-1.fc7.src.rpm"

This creates an spec file "/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/heartbeat.spec" in addition to couple of patch file and the tarball under the folder "/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/"

3. I install the software by running the following command, "rpmbuild -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/heartbeat.spec"

Once the above command is issued, it appears that the prep, build, and installation is done with no issue as I see lots of things happening on my screen and I don't get any errors at the end. But when I use the following command to see the rpm has been installed, "rpm -qa | grep -i heartbeat", I don't get anything back. Basically, the software is not installed as I cannot find it also on the system.

I have tried the above on couple of different boxes running fedora 7 and the result has been identical.

I would like someone to look at this issue in order to fix and provide me information on what is going on.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Here's your solution, project completed :) rpmbuild -ba in your step 3 does not install the binary rpm; it only creates it. I know it says "installing..." but that's just in a temporary location before it packages t More
