How To Update exim using a source rpm (src.rpm)Last Modified: May 10, 2012, 3:10 pm
In this how-to, we'll describe how to compile a new version of th exim src.rpm file in order to update exim.
We'll use exim 4.77 for the example, so if you need a new/older version, just replace all instances of that version with the version you want (assuming we have it on our server).

rpmbuild --rebuild --force da_exim-4.77-1.src.rpm
rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/da_exim-4.77-1.i386.rpm
/etc/init.d/exim restart

If needed, use the --nodeps and/or --force options with the rpm command.
