Description rastor 1999-03-25 09:06:18 EST
After a clean 5.9 install, (once rpm has been made
functional), attempting to combine -q with -i produces the
error "unknown option" instead of displaying the package's
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-03-25 15:39:59 EST
Does "rpm -qi rpm" do the right thing? Please reopen with
the exact syntax (and version: rpm --version) that is failing ...
Comment 2 rastor 1999-03-26 17:43:59 EST
No, rpm -qi also failed, with the same error.  The version was 2.92
that shipped with the 5.9 beta release... I did not repost because
this problem was resolved when I installed rpm-2.92-13.i386.rpm from
rawhide, as per bug #1688.  (I had to use the --ignorearch option to
install, however.)
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-03-26 19:53:59 EST
The --ignorearch is troublesome. Thanks for the report.
