i'm a newbie at building rpms. I made a few rpms years ago, but can't now
make one on Centos 5.

In /usr/local/rpmbuild, there are 5 subdirs: BUILD RPMS SOURCES SPECS
SRPMS tmp
It's not a good idea to build rpms as root (unless in a throw-away vm). Build
as user or even better using mock.

That said, many a broken rpmbuild can be blamed on missing the
redhat-rpm-config package (containing lots of rpm macros).

If that's not the case I'd try rebuilding a known good src.rpm with
"rpmbuild --rebuild foo.src.rpm" to validate your setup.

When I type: rpmbuild -ba
/usr/local/rpmbuild/SPECS/centos-release-cr-ihc.spec

I get 'file not found' errors, for paths in /usr/local/rpmbuild/tmp:
error: File not found:
/usr/local/rpmbuild/tmp/centos-release-cr-ihc-buildroot/etc/yum.repos.d
error: File not found:
/usr/local/rpmbuild/tmp/centos-release-cr-ihc-buildroot/etc/yum.repos.d/Ce
ntOS-cr.repo RPM build errors:
File not found:
/usr/local/rpmbuild/tmp/centos-release-cr-ihc-buildroot/etc/yum.repos.d
File not found:
/usr/local/rpmbuild/tmp/centos-release-cr-ihc-buildroot/etc/yum.repos.d/Ce
ntOS-cr.repo

All i did was to:
1) put a tarball in SOURCES,
2) put a spec file in SPECS,
3) rpmbuild -ba my spec file

Did I miss a step? If not, here's the contents of my tarball and spec
file:

The tarball in SOURCES is named: centos-release-cr-ihc-1.tar.gz
the contents of which are:
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2011-09-09 15:40:01 centos-release-cr-ihc-1/
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2011-09-09 15:39:57
centos-release-cr-ihc-1/etc/ drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2011-09-09
15:40:39 centos-release-cr-ihc-1/etc/yum.repos.d/ -rw-r--r-- root/root
523 2011-09-09 15:35:59
centos-release-cr-ihc-1/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-cr.repo

my spec file is /usr/local/rpmbuild/SPECS/centos-release-cr-ihc.spec
the contents of which are:
