I have read several places NEVER to build RPM's as the root user. As such, I defined a new user and have tried building out RPM structures there, however, using the
rpmbuild --rebuild src.name.rpm
returns an error which states the topdir cannot be accessed:
error: cannot write to %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
error: curl-7.20.1-1.src.rpm cannot be installed
does anybody know how to make this change? I have a correct /src/ directory set up under the new user.
