[Glade-users] glade-0.6.2.i386.rpm made from glade-0.6.2.tar.gz

This might be trivial - but might help a few people though.

I would like to report that I was able to compile
the latest version of glade using rpm and operating
directly on the tar ball. This was done on a heavily
modified RedHat-6.2 box (intel P2), with quite a
number of development tools.

The one command used to create the rpm's was:

  rpm -ta glade-0.6.2.tar.gz

Compilation took quite a while; something like half an
hour, but eventually go to an end:

  Wrote: /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS/glade-0.6.2-SNAP.src.rpm
  Wrote: /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/glade-0.6.2-SNAP.i386.rpm
  Executing(%clean): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.50901
  + umask 022
  + cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
  + cd glade-0.6.2
  + '[' -n /var/tmp/glade-0.6.2-root -a /var/tmp/glade-0.6.2-root '!=' / ']'
  + rm -rf /var/tmp/glade-0.6.2-root
  + exit 0

and the currently installed glade rpm was upgraded using

  rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/glade-0.6.2-SNAP.i386.rpm

I suggest mentioning the rpm build command on the download page
and/or in the INSTALL file, and that a src.rpm as well as
a i386.rpm is added in the *Packages section on the download
page ( http://glade.gnome.org/download.html).

For now the generated rpm's are available as


The intention is to use glade to create interfaces in perl and C.
and it works just fine.

Thanks for a great program
