Cannot build rpm from splashutils.*.src.rpm

Hi all,

I'm a new member here. But I not a complete newbie to linux.

I am trying to build an rpm package from the splashutils- as provided in the following link:


I have managed to build rpms from all the other src.rpm's provided, and I have also taken care of all the dependencies required for the various src.rpm's. But I am having problems with this particular package.

When I run the following command:

# rpmbuild --rebuild /home/partha/Splash/splashutils-

I get the following error:

You can run `make` now.
+ sed -i '/^.(OBJDIR)/,/^.(OBJLDIR/s/-DTARGET/-fPIC -DPIC &/' Makefile
+ sed -i '/#define FBSPLASH_CACHEDIR/s#LIBDIR"#"/lib#' fbsplash.h
+ make LIB=/lib

error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.62922 (%build)

RPM build errors:
InstallSourcePackage: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 44aa3cbe
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.62922 (%build)

I am using FC7. The repos I use are fedora and livna, although I used to have freshrpms enabled. I have had it disabled since I have enabled livna.

I think something is going on with libjpeg. I have thought about uninstalling and reinstalling it, but there is a large number of dependencies and quite a large number of packages will be uninstalled along with libjpeg. So for the time being it is not an option.

I look forward to any insight and advice anyone can throw my way. What can I say, I got hooked to framebuffer eye candy back when I used Gentoo. Thanks in advance.
