<h3>RPMs For Other Platforms</h3>

For platforms in which binaries aren't available here, you can easily build binary RPMs directly from the Python source tar file. Simply download it and run "rpmbuild -ta Python-2.2.2.tgz". Note toward the end of the output, the lines starting with "Wrote:" indicate where the binary RPMs were written. <p/> The benefit of building binary RPMs in this way is that they are built using exactly the set of libraries and versions of packages that you have installed on your system. Because the SRPMs encompass all the steps required to build binary RPMs, it is a "fire and forget" process -- the simplest source build ever...

<h3><a name="FAQ"></a>RPM Frequently Asked Questions</h3>

<ul>
<li />Q) Why I try to run "rpmbuild -ta Python-2.2.2.tgz", I get the
error: "error: File /root/Python-2.2.2b1.tgz: No such file or directory".
<li />A) Yes, there's a problem with the .spec file in the base tar
file. Use the SRPM that is on this page...

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 99)

Definition list ends without a blank line; unexpected unindent.

<hr />

<li />Q) When running "rpm -ba", "rpm -ta" or "rpm --rebuild" I get
the error "-ba: unknown option" or "--rebuild: unknown option" or "-ta: unknown option".
<li />A) With the Red Hat 8.0 release, the building options were removed
from the "rpm" command. Use the "rpmbuild" command instead ("rpmbuild -ta Python-2.2.2.tgz").

<hr /> <li />Q) I'm getting the "-ba: unknown option" when trying to build RPMs

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 110)

Unexpected indentation.
using distutils "python setup.py bdist_rpm".

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 111)

Block quote ends without a blank line; unexpected unindent.
<li />A) As noted above, Red Hat broke the "build" functionality out of
the base "rpm" command with the 8.0 release. Unfortunately, they didn't patch their python RPM to account for this, and they don't appear to be planning to release any errata to fix this. If you upgrade to the 2.2.2-7 RPMs on this page, distutils should work. Note that this seems to be fixed in the Red Hat 9 release (which uses Python 2.2.2, which has a patched distutils).

<hr /> <li />Q) When trying to build RPMs, I get "rpmbuild: command not found". <li />A) The "rpmbuild" command is part of a separate RPM "rpm-build".

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 122)

Unexpected indentation.
You will need to install this package before you can build RPMs.
