Uplink (32bit)

Preamble

  • For troubleshooting, see the FAQs
  • You should already have your build environment setup, as described here
  • You require the original game package called: uplink_1.6-1_i386.tar.gz
  • You should uninstall the game if it's already installed
  • All commands should be run as the same user that created the build environment, unless otherwise stated

Creating the RPM

• Verify you have the correct original package by using md5sum:
md5sum uplink_1.6-1_i386.tar.gz
The number produced should match this, if it doesn't then the build may fail.

• Copy the original package to your ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES directory, for example:
cp uplink_1.6-1_i386.tar.gz ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES
• Download the following 'nosrc' RPM using your browser (or wget if you prefer): uplink32-1.6-3.nosrc.rpm

• Change to the directory where the 'nosrc' RPM has been saved and type ONE of the following:

If you have a 32bit (i686) operating system:

rpmbuild --rebuild uplink32-1.6-3.nosrc.rpm
If you have a 64bit (x86_64) operating system:
i386 rpmbuild --rebuild --target=i686 uplink32-1.6-3.nosrc.rpm

• If all is successful, the binary RPM will be created in ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/i686/ Use yum (as root) to install the RPM as it will resolve any dependencies for you. For example:

yum -y install myhomespace/rpmbuild/RPMS/i686/uplink32-1.6-3.i686.rpm
