When i execute the following command:

[exec] rpmbuild -bb --buildroot /var/tmp/ipa/oam/package /var/tmp/ipa/oam/package/oam.spec
[exec] Processing files: oam-4.1.0-1
[exec] error: Two files on one line: /usr/lib/ipa/oam-web/html/endorsed.jnlp.template
[exec] error: File must begin with "/":

where should I look into?
The line:     /usr/lib/ipa/oam-web/html/endorsed.jnlp.template   is part of omcr.spec.
It is listed under %files section.

I'm not very good with Linux.   I'm just tossing an idea at you hoping it can help,

I've thumbed through these links,

On the first link a poster mentions,
"Double quoting, and only double quoting ("), does work for me (in %files
section)."

THanks for the info.
I found that the issue that that the file was edited in dos and had delimiters from there.
I had written teh same contents in a linux system and replaced teh old one with this.
Now things work fine.
