So, I love fvwm and want it on all my machines. So, I am going to pull windows 98 off of an old box and I installed redhat linux on it.
However, after reading up on rpm, I want to figure out how to take an rpm file off of my current box, and install it on the older box. (just so I know how to do it).
I followed the steps outlined on:
http://www.fvwm.org/documentation/dev_creating_rpms.php and I have created an rpm file from the tar.gz that I downloaded from the download page of fvwm.org.
However, after looking at some other sites and docs, it seems that some people are saying that I have to create this rpm file that I want to install on my target computer from the fvwm source files (whatever thay are) instead of from the fvwm that I have installed on my computer.
So, do I need to download the fvwm source files, install those on my computer, make an rpm from those installed source files, and then install that ‘fvwm source’ based rpm onto the target box? Or can I create a viable rpm from the tar.gz files found at:
I am hoping that creating an rpm from the tar.gz found on the download page of fvwm.org will allow me to copy that rpm file over to the target box, and simply type
rpm -i foo.rpm and it will install fvwm onto that box. Of course, I will then need to copy my .fvwm2rc file, but that is easily done.
Also, what about any themes that I might have installed on my current computer? Are they included in the rpm that I make? Or is there something more that must be done?
Ya, stupid questions, I know, but if anyone has done this before, I would really appreciate any thoughts before I blow the living crap out of my target box.
