Hello folks,

Firstly sorry if this is the incorrect forum for this post but none of
the others seemed appropriate. I would like to be able to create a patch
RPM as hinted at in section 6.2.3 of the SLES guide here:
https://www.suse.com/documentation/s...a/sec_rpm.html. Unfortunately the
man pages referenced and numerous google searches have failed to garner
any more information than in the section linked.

As far as I can see this is a binary patch rather than a source code
patch of an SRPM but I can find no information on how to actually create
such an RPM. We are currently producing delta RPMS using the
makedeltarpm command (on SLES 11 SP3) but want a way to update an
existing installation of our application without the need to reinstall
the full package in a production environment.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of how to create these patch
RPM files.
