Building ISO or at least updating install from SRPMs (RHAS3.0)
Posted on 2003-11-03
I have the SRPMs for RHAS3.0, ideally I would create the ISO images (rather than pay four figures for a license, when all I want to do is experiment with Oracle on it), but otherwise I want to be able to create the RPMs for all 677 SRPMs, and build a 3.0 system from it.
I've done a lot of RPM'ing, and a bit of doing individual SRPM -> RPM and install; I've even done a rare kernel upgrade from scratch, but this seems like a big job.
I somehow know I'm going to run into a bunch of dependency problems, etc.
So if there's a intermediate to advanced howto for doing this, that would be great. I could do this from another RH install, such as 9.0 or RHAS2.1.
