7 Steps to Build a RPM Package from Source on CentOS / RedHat


Sometimes you might have access to an open source application source code but might not have the RPM file to install it on your system.

In that situation, you can either compile the source code and install the application from source code, or build a RPM file from source code yourself, and use the RPM file to install the application.

There might also be a situation where you want to build a custom RPM package for the application that you developed.
