User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050923 Fedora/1.7.12-1.5.1
Description of problem:
The nothing selected minimal install ends up with a non-working rpm, and rpm-libs is not installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda from fc5t2 installer (boot.iso?)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. fc5t2 boot.iso, network install: ftp
2. at package selection unselect everything.
3. next etc.
4. once complete, try: rpm
Actual Results: #rpm -qa
rpm: error while loading shared libraries: librpm-4.4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Expected Results: should see the minimal installed package list.
#ls -l /usr/lib/librp*
No such file or directory.
#ls -l /bin/rpm
-rwxr-xr-x 1 rpm rpm 83732 Jan 10 02:20 /bin/rpm
manually copying on librpm-4.4.so, then librpmdb-4.4.so, then librpmio-4.4.so, then librpmbuild-4.4.so from a FC4 system has got rpm operating.
#rpm -qa|grep rpm
doesn't rpm need rpm-libs ?
Without a working rpm, much harder to put the other particular packages you need onto the freshly installed system.
