Default too ad there s no rpm anymore

how can we do some pull client installation
from a server like it was possible with the
rpm installer with a good rpm installer
like autorpm?

I used to do that with the former provided
rpm files and now i don't know how can i do
the same with thre new installed

i have more than 2 hundred machines to put
in sync with nvdia driver but theses machines
are highy heterogeneous ( above all with
kernel version )
i wouldn't prefer not to have to built explicitly
the driver for each version of kernel.
it was automagicly done with some rpmbuild
tool before.

You should be able to modify your scripts slightly to run the installer with the -s option.

I know what rpmbuild is - i'm referring to the script or program that calls rpmbuild.

Well this program has not root acces.
then it could launch the install script but will
have no chance to has the right.

The application that install the rpm can't
launch the script install but has the right.

I would prefer not break all the things i put
in place just to install the nvidia driver.

Nevertheless thanks for your answer even if
it doesn't solve my problem.

OK, so could you modify the scripts to pass --extract-only to the installer, cd into the new directory (which will be named NVIDIA* -- this will only work if the .run file isn't in the current directory), and run make?

Well on the client i don't launch scripts
i launch autorpm that does the job.

It just does update the nvidia rpm package
if a fresher version is available.

I guess i will have to maintain myself a rpm
of what the installer does.

Then you can imagine i didn't think it s an
improvment
