Hello all,

I tried to do that rebuild,  this is what I get.

[root@io OpenAFS]# rpmbuild --rebuild --target=x86_64 
Installing openafs-1.4.2-19_fc4.at.src.rpm
warning: InstallSourcePackage: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 
Building target platforms: x86_64
Building for target x86_64
error: line 1: Unknown tag: %kmdl openafs

any ideas ?
