Description Mike Gerdts 1999-11-11 21:13:06 UTC
I did the following:

[mike@mlg-12-0 mike]$ rpm -q bind
package bind is not installed
[mike@mlg-12-0 mike]$ rpm -q bind-utils
bind-utils-8.2.1-7
[mike@mlg-12-0 mike]$ rpm -q bind-devel
package bind-devel is not installed[mike@mlg-12-0 mike]$ /bin/su

bind-devel               ##################################################
bind-utils               ##################################################
[root@mlg-12-0 mike]# rpm -q bind
bind-8.2.2_P3-1

As I read rpm(8), bind and bind-devel should not have been installed.

I cannot reproduce this bug.
