Description of problem:
anaconda-runtime is great, because you install the files necessary to
rebuild distributions without installing the entire anaconda package
which has some many dependencies it's sick.  However, an important
part of the anaconda-runtime package is pkgorder, which requires
several python libraries not distributed with anaconda-runtime
(whiteout, anaconda_log, flags, etc.).  Some are found in rpm-python,
the others in anaconda.

Is there any chance that an anaconda-runtime can be built that has
these files without requiring every other single library installed
with Fedora?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install anaconda-runtime rpm
2. run pkgorder

Actual Results:  pkgorder craps out because it can't find rpm (or
whiteout, or anaconda_log, etc. etc.)

Expected Results:  pkgorder works fine, without the necessary bloat of
the entire anaconda package being installed

Additional info:

This looks to be a problem at least as far back as Redhat 9.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-13 15:40:27 EDT
Unfortunately, pkgorder requires these things to function. 
anaconda-runtime doesn't have the deps on the specific packages like
anaconda to allow running things like genhdlist without a full system.
