>All I used were:
>java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0.03-1jpp.nosrc.rpm (from jpackage site)
>jdk-1_5_0_03-linux-i586.bin (from Sun site)
Finally I found out what went wrong. I must confess that I downloaded
the wrong file: jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586.bin instead of
Building the rpm was easy now. Thanks for all your reactions.
