    I was wondering how I can install all source packages in a directory


    I downloaded GNOME 2.10 in source. I'm running CentOS (which is written using the RHEL 4 source). I needed to downloaded 20 or so source packages which I downloaded to the same directory. I would like to extract them, and go into each directory and do a configure;make;checkinstall (to convert them to RPM and install). Is there a way for me to recursively install packages in this fashion. Or do I need to do them back to back?

    you can do tar -zxvf package1 && tar -zxvf package2 && ... and so on but I think that's the only way...
