cd /tmp wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/68719/ruby-enterprise-1.8.7-2010.02.tar.gz cp ruby-enterprise-1.8.7-2010.02.tar.gz ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/
Get Necessary System-specific Configs
git clone git://github.com/causes/ree-centos.git cp ree-centos/patches/* ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/ cp ree-centos/spec/ruby-enterprise.spec ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/
