Guys I have forgotten something maybe some here knows, 
When using and rpm macro do I need to install another package for rpm to 
support it. 
The reason I ask is mine won't work!

I have created a file /root/.rpmmacro
in is this 
%_solve_pkgsdir   /path/to/your/rpms
%_solve_name_fmt %{?_solve_pkgsdir}/%%{NAME}-%%{VERSION}-%%{RELEASE}.

<second line is one line>
this I use in conjunction with rpm -<U/i>vh --aid package name.rpm

any ideas?
