Hi,

I want to modify an RPM, so I have downloaded the SRPM only to realize
I have no clue what to do with it. I was surprised that the SRPM is a
binary file- so how is that 'source'? I looked for information at
www.rpm.org and the Red Hat docs but found nothing on working with
SRPM's.

Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks,
