I've been having issues getting my packages to install the init scripts.

Looks like your file is missing from the BUILD/<your-package> directory:
the 1st thing rpmbuild does during the install phase is to go there:

Executing(%install): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.23204
+ umask 022
+ cd /home/derbeyn/rpmbuild/BUILD
+ cd libtune-0.12

So (unless you did some 'cd xxx' before trying to install your init
script), check that init/bongo.init.fc4 has been correctly generated in
the BUILD directory.

Hope this helps!


It looks like it moves from $RPM_BUILD_ROOT into /var/tmp/<package>, so
I inserted a cd $RPM_BUILD_ROOT prior to trying to install the init
script but still the same answer :(

I think my %install isn't actually correct, but I'm still learning:

BTW, there's a document ( that contains quite an interesting scheme (page # 18) about the directories involved in the rpm building process.
