Hi distutils,

When I run:

./setup.py bdist --formats=rpm

on my source directory, I get the error:

rpm -ba --define _topdir /home/james/code/scantran/build/bdist.linux-x86_64/rpm --clean build/bdist.linux-x86_64/rpm/SPECS/scantran.spec
-ba: unknown option
error: command 'rpm' failed with exit status 1

It seems the problem can be fixed by installing the rpm-build package (on fedora 14 anyways) and so perhaps something should be done so that this is more obvious...

HTH,
James
