To do this, you need to use the rpmbuild command.
AnnouncementYou can find all my latest posts on medium.
First you have to install this utility by installing the following package:
$ yum install rpmdevtools
And maybe also the following too:
$ yum install gcc make rpm-build patch # the following I think are optional: $ yum pcre-devel openssl-devel rrdtool-devel
You might need to do some patching:
$ patch -p1 --dry-run < /path/to/patch.patch $ patch -p1 < /path/to/patch.patch
For more info about checkout out:
$ yum info patch Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security, ulninfo *Note* Spacewalk repositories are not listed below. You must run this command as root to access Spacewalk repositories. Installed Packages Name : patch Arch : x86_64 Version : 2.6 Release : 6.el6 Size : 172 k Repo : installed From repo : anaconda-OracleLinuxServer-201507280245.x86_64 Summary : Utility for modifying/upgrading files URL : http://www.gnu.org/software/patch/patch.html License : GPLv2+ Description : The patch program applies diff files to originals.

Next run rpmdev-setuptree, this will result in the rpmbuild folder being created:
[root@puppetmaster ~]# ls anaconda-ks.cfg install.log install.log.syslog [root@puppetmaster ~]# rpmdev-setuptree [root@puppetmaster ~]# ls anaconda-ks.cfg install.log install.log.syslog rpmbuild [root@puppetmaster ~]# tree rpmbuild/ rpmbuild/ ├── BUILD ├── RPMS ├── SOURCES ├── SPECS └── SRPMS 5 directories, 0 files [root@puppetmaster ~]#
