Hello SuSE folk,

Running 8.2 Downloaded the latest SuSE Python src.rpm. I gave it the
rpm --rebuild command and it did it's thing for about 20 minutes. It
seems to have failed. Following are about the last 10 lines:
creating build/scripts-2.3
copying and
adjusting /usr/src/packages/BUILD/Python-2.3.3/Tools/scripts/pydoc ->

/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.63677: line 51: emacs: command not found
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.63677 (%build)
linux:/home/bob/Installing #
Here are the last few lines from rpm-tmp:
# precompile emacs stuff
emacs --batch --no-site -f batch-byte-compile Misc/python-mode.el
exit 0
It produced a SPEC file and put lots of stuff in BUILD & SOURCES,
but did not make an rpm for me.

Could I just build an rpm now with the spec file?

Could somebody please explain/help please?

Bob S.
