RPM Wiriting

After some extensive troubleshooting I was finally able to successfully build an RPM package from the source RPM.  I tried several packages when doing this lab but the only one that seemed successful was gzip, an open source package compressor and archiver.

When building the package I quickly learned that much of the program is written in the spec file and if some of the required files aren’t in the spec file then the RPM package wont build. Below is a screenshot of my gzip spec file:

Below is a link to my source RPMs:
