    Are there any error messages before "Bad exist status from /var/tmp/rpm.tmp.14636 (%prep)"?

    Thanks for replying. I found out the cause of the error. I tried to build the rpm using the root first and then switched to another user so I had to delete the results from building the rpm files on the root account and re-ran the rpm build with the other user account and this way it worked!

    Thanks again
