mkdir -p /tmp//myrpm/{SOURCES,BUILD,RPMS,SRPMS}
rpmbuild --define "_topdir /tmp/myrpm" \
         --rebuild enterpriseonload-<version>.src.rpm
Note: On some non-standard kernels the rpmbuild might fail because of build dependencies. In this event retry, adding the --nodeps option to the command line.

  • /usr/src/*/RPMS/
  • _topdir/RPMS (when built by a non-root user)
  • /tmp/myrpm/RPMS/x86_64/ (when _topdir was defined in the rpmbuild command line).

For example, the user-space components:
