You pick up a third party repository like EPEL, follow the repository's instructions on how to enable it, then yum install the desired packages. Finally you follow the application's documentation on how to configure it.

On CentOS5 I was used to create a simple spec file where at the end I'll declare files and directories I wan't to package:

%files
%dir /opt/myapp
%dir /opt/myapp/bin
%dir /opt/myapp/etc
/opt/myapp/bin/exec01
/opt/myapp/etc/myapp.conf

I'll copy the file in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS and run "rpmbuild -bb myapp.spec".

On CentOS6 rpm-build package no longer creates the /usr/src/redhat/... directory tree. I followed the CentOS6 Wiki instructions to setup my rpmbuild environment for a regular user.

When I try to build the package on CentOS6 I'm getting this error for every single file and directory:

File not found:

/home/myhome/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/myapp-5.2-1el6.x86_64/opt/myapp/bin/exec01

I tried to override buildroot:

rpmbuild -bb --define="buildroot /" myapp.spec
 error: %{buildroot} can not be "/"

As a workaround I can manually create /home/myhome/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/myapp-5.2-1el6.x86_64/ and copy all my file in there but that's a lot of extra work.

Is there a way to get the same functionality on CentOS6 where rpmbuild will collect the files from the main / directory and build the rpm package?

I have just installed (with kikstart) centOS6.4 on a PC which was previously running OpenSUSE (11.x). This PC has an apple keyboard and I'm unable to setup this keyboard. In .xsession-errors I get this messages :

Error: No Symbols named "latin9" in the include file "macintosh_vndr/fr"
 Exiting
 Abandoning symbols file "(null)"

** (gnome-settings-daemon:8160): WARNING **: Could not activate the XKB  configuration
Error: No Symbols named "latin9" in the include file "macintosh_vndr/fr"
 Exiting
 Abandoning symbols file "(null)"

** (gnome-settings-daemon:8160): WARNING **: Could not activate the XKB configuration

Google found on a RedHat forum that it seams to be an old known bug but do not find any update or workaround. I've several PC using Apple keyboards as users have also Apple laptops and they do not want to work with two different keyboards.

I want to install path.py in my Python 3.4 environment on a Centos 5 box. My /usr/local/bin/ contains:

easy_install-3.4 
python3.4  
etc. 

We are behind a proxy server and I tried this:

# /usr/local/bin/easy_install-3.4 path.py 

Searching for path.py 
Reading https://pypi.python.org/simple/path.py/ 
Download error on https://pypi.python.org/simple/path.py/: hostname '172.29.68.1  
' doesn't match either of 'www.python.org', 'python.org', 'pypi.python.org',  
'docs.python.org', 'testpypi.python.org', 'bugs.python.org', 'wiki.python.org',  
'hg.python.org', 'mail.python.org', 'packaging.python.org', 'pythonhosted.org',  
'www.pythonhosted.org', 'test.pythonhosted.org', 'us.pycon.org', 'id.python.org' --  
Some packages may not be found! 

Couldn't find index page for 'path.py' (maybe misspelled?), Am I best to use pip or easy_install? also if easy_install, how can I fix the above error?
