I have been tasked with taking a suite of software tools we develop in-house that is provided to me pre-compiled and as a .tar.gz file and creating a simple binary RPM installer. The software has no external dependancies. Our typical install procedures is to untar the tar directories to a location. It is all stand alone with no external dependancies.
Is this even possible? I don't have access to the source since I am not on the development team. I have the tar file and can untar the directory structure to get the precompiled toolset directory structure. But they basically want a binary RPM file to function like an un-tar so the end user just has to double click the RPM file and BOOM all our software is in the proper place.
