Using distutils 0.9 (downloaded 7/10/00 from python.org), on Redhat 6.1, I'm trying to build an RPM.
distutils fails to write /nexrad/6/code/rdss/spol/perp/build/bdist.linux2/rpm/RPMS/i386/Perp-0.5-1.i386.rpm
because the i386 subdirectory of RPMS /nexrad/6/code/rdss/spol/perp/build/bdist.linux2/rpm/RPMS/i386
does not exist.
If I manually create 'RPMS/i386', the binary RPM gets built fine.
Aside from this glitch - this is great progress, since I've never learned how to build RPMS before, and now distutils has done it for me. Very nice!
(Thanks, Harry Henry Gebel!)
