Every day, all around the world, somebody says, "it would be great to make an RPM to install this software," but then find that they don't have anybody who has made one before, and don't really know how to work out how to make one, or how much effort would be involved in going about that task. This is a fairly short and easy-to-follow guide aimed at helping people to create RPMs quickly and easily in real-world situations. All of the files needed to work through the book can be downloaded for free, and you can also download a ready-built Virtualbox virtual machine, configured with the necessary software and files, to accompany the book. This all comes together to make it easy to create professionally-presented RPM packages with confidence. The author is an independent IT consultant with almost two decades experience with Linux and RPM.
