Hi… So I built an RPM with FPM. I uploaded it to the repo, I attempted to install it and I got the craziest error.
Intended for a darwin operating system
Disclaimer, I use a mac and I built the RPM locally. This surprised me a little as I wasn’t aware that OSX could even support RPMs. Long story short, there was a bug report related to this issue provided to FPM and they built a very simple to use and very cool flag.
— rpm-os linux
While this is a fairly straight forward flag and problem, if you’re like me and building RPMs on a Mac, don’t forget this amazing little flag.
