That is a bit obscure to someone who doesn't think they can build it
Here are more complete instructions....
* install the mrtg srpm from the Fedora Core 4 distribution.
That will put a number of files in your build root. Usually, that
* download the most recent tarball
* if the old tarball in /usr/src/RPM/SOURCES was bzip'ed instead of
gzip'ed, then you will need to gunzip the file, and then bzip2 it. It
would then be mrtg-2.14.4.tar.bz2
* Put the new (gzip|bzip2) tarball in /usr/src/RPM/SOURCES
* Edit /usr/src/RPM/SPECS/mrtg.spec and change the %Version to 2.14.4.
If you also want snmp v3 support, you will need to add a line like:
For completeness, you should also add a comment in the changelog
* Tue Mar 14 2006 Dan McDonald <dan.mcdonald at austinenergy.com> 2.13.2-1mdk
- New Release 2.13.2
Now run rpmbuild -ba /usr/src/RPM/SPECS/mrtg.spec
rpmbuild will either complain that you need to load another package, or
compile a fresh RPM for you. It will also package up a fresh SRPM with
your modified spec file.
