With help from Debarshi Ray, I tried to do some packaging for fedora. I started with Straw which has be orphaned.
I downloaded Straw 0.27 .tar.gz from here .Put the source to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES . And took the spec file fedora core 5 .As i am a first timer so Debarshi helped me by writing the spec file for me. I took it from here
Now when i executed the command
$rpmbuild -ba straw.spec
i got the following output .
Now could not resolve the problem of straw.lang . Is it still used as was guessed by tuukka hastrup at #straw.
Previosly I faced a problem of failing dependencies of python-bsddb3.Which got resolved by installing bsddb from here
