    I'm working through the tutorial: Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Fedora 17 x86_64) and have ran into errors early in the Howto:

    1) the first rpm build did not put the package in /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64
    but in
    -- $HOME/home/installuser/rpm/RPMS/x86_64 - I did the rpm build from this dir and it finished successfully.

    2) rpmbuild -ta courier-imap-4.9.3.tar.bz2
    give me an error that I cannot figure out:

    bzip2: I/O or other error, bailing out. Possible reason follows.
    bzip2: Broken pipe
    Input file = courier-imap-4.9.3.tar.bz2, output file = (stdout)
    error: Unable to open spec file /home/installuser/rpm/SPECS/rpm-spec.6LZFkW: No such file or directory

    bzip2: I/O or other error, bailing out. Possible reason follows.
    bzip2: Broken pipe
    Input file = courier-imap-4.9.3.tar.bz2, output file = (stdout)
    error: Unable to open spec file /home/installuser/rpm/SPECS/rpm-spec.6LZFkW: No such file or directory
    error: Failed to read spec file from courier-imap-4.9.3.tar.bz2

    I tried a find on all the filesystems and cannot find this file.

    Does anyone have any ideas of what I'm missing.

    Thanks

    I took a look at the problem and decided to upgrade to fedora 18. Hope this solves it.
