Because the following book is requested, we add a link for, but do not recommend the 'Maximum RPM' online edition; please be aware that parts of this book pre-date a major restructuring in the RPM project, to split out from 'rpm' the package management tool, the 'rpmbuild' binary package building tool. As such some references, such as to:
