Description Pekka Savola 2000-06-09 14:22:37 UTC
In rpm 4.0, rpm -i switch doesn't work properly:
/tmp/rpm -qip iptables-1.0.0-2.i386.rpm 
rpm: unexpected query source

rpm --info -qp iptables-1.0.0-2.i386.rpm works though.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-06-09 14:29:15 UTC
Quick fix: Edit /usr/lib/rpm/rpmpopt, and comment out lines that look like

rpm     exec -q                 rpmq -q
rpm     exec --query            rpmq --query
rpm     exec --querytags        rpmq --querytags
rpm     exec -V                 rpmv -V
rpm     exec -y                 rpmv -y
rpm     exec --verify           rpmv --verify

Otherwise upgrade rpm packages, latest right now is rpm-4.0-0.33.
