rebuild rpm from installed rpm with rpmrebuild

Ever happened to you that you downloaded and installed  a rpm and then deleted the package? If your answer is yes, then there is a solution.

Come to the fairyland of rpmrebuild. Create the rpm from the installed files  and give a new number if required.

sudo yum install rpmrebuild

Simplest use is to

rpmrebuild <package name>

but I personally like the one mentioned below:

rpmrebuild -R -v -P –pug-from-db <package name>
