I didn't keep very good records, I'm afraid. The process started off
with me running something similar to the following script on Friday
night, and leaving it running over the weekend:
for srpm in /scratch/yarrow/SRPMS/*
rpm --rebuild $srpm
Quite simple, really. I then took a look at what was left in
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS and began playing. You'll need to clean up the
SOURCES and BUILD directories regularly though, unless you've got an
awful lot of disk space.
The best guide I can suggest is to take a look at the timestamps on the
packages in ftp://genuine-article.maths.monash.edu.au/pub/RPMS/ and
work from there if you want to try to recreate the path I took.
All my SRPMS for currently built packages can be found at
ftp://genuine-article.maths.monash.edu.au/pub/SRPMS/ - the ones that
are modified from the Yarrow distribution have "al1" (or "al2" or
whatever) appended to the release version. Mostly the adjustments are
Oh - I also have all my "gcc", "g++" and other commands symlinked to
"gcc3", "g++3" and the others that came from the RedHat 7.2
distribution. I did start out using 2.96, but didn't get very far. :)
Now I don't think much more than I've already done is going to build
until I can get the gcc and glibc packages built.
