More information

Warning - no accents

The path where you run the script must not contain any special character like é, ü, etc. This is a limitation of the rpm tools.

How to update

When a new version of Discord is released, simply run the script again to get the updated version.

Dependencies

The rpmdevtools package is required to build RPM packages. The script detects if it isn't installed and offers to install it.

About root privileges

Building an RPM package with root privileges is dangerous, see http://serverfault.com/questions/10027/why-is-it-bad-to-build-rpms-as-root.
