Default find: /var/tmp/pcore-0.1-Beta-root: No such file or directory

Michael,
1.
%install
mkdir -p %{name}
mkdir -p %{_bindir}
install -d %{name}
These three don't make sense. Read on...
- Yes, they do not make sense, i as just experimenting. my intention was to use the %install section, to create
directories like /usr/bin in "temp"/build area to be able to copy the executables there later on.Especially since the makefile does NOT have "install" section
2. What is -dd? Perhaps just a type mistake and you meant -bb. Correct?yes its a typo, i meant -bb
3. One which platform did you do this build attempt?CentOs 32 bit 5.8
Since that IS the target
platform, and as far as i understand rpmbuild has to run ON the target platform.

4. i made some progress..
here is an updated pcore.spec
Source: pcore-0.1.tar.gz
BuildRoot: %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}
BuildRequires: gcc = 4.1.2
BuildRequires: make >= 3.81
BuildRequires: postgresql84-devel = 8.4.9

%description
ElementalCORE

%prep
%setup -qn pcore

%build
%{__make}

%install
mkdir -p %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}
mkdir -p %{name}
mkdir -p %{_bindir}
install -d %{name}

%clean

%files
%defattr(-,root,root)
%doc NEWS
and i WAS able to get an rpm build with NEWS in the folder*/usr/share/doc/pcore-0.1/NEWS
Now i want to copy /pcore/obj/ggsnc/ggsnc to /usr/bin/How?I have NO
idea
I really appreciate your help.Thanks,-Kamal.

What is -dd? Perhaps just a type mistake and you meant -bb. Correct?

Here the "builddir" was entered. The top directory of the extracted
source tarball.

One which platform did you do this build attempt?
It doesn't look like a recent Fedora or RHEL platform, because those
would empty'n'create the %buildroot directory. That is missing in what
you've quoted.

These three commands operated within the build directory, not in the
%buildroot. To operated in the buildroot, you need to use the
prefix
%{buildroot} or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT with every path.

This refers to the buildroot, the path specified in the "BuildRoot:" tag.
It doesn't exist for your build, because apparently you use a very old Fedora
where you need to do the following in the %install section:

%install
rm -rf %{buildroot}
mkdir -p %{buildroot}
