I have a script to do all the other stuff depending on Distro, I have one for Raspbian, Debian, Ubuntu if done from source, Archlinux, and now I'm working on one for Fedora. Since I'm retired it keeps me off the streets and out of the bars :-}

I run openSuse tumbleweed and build from src as per the wiki.
It may be 'for fun' but I see no need to build rpm. I'm not going to distribute and a simple make install does all. git pull keeps you upto date and if you break somefing (sic) then it's easy to revert, and easy to try master, then (say) checkout fixes/33

Thor (the god of thunder) took out my i7, but an asus with an 8 core ryzen is working flawlessly.
