This problem affects both the tcl and tk packages in RHEL-3.  Easy fix.  Both
packages get a "Requires(post): coreutils".

Adding to the RHEL-8 U8 Proposed list.
Comment 2 Brian Long 2006-03-23 15:39:49 EST
RHEL 8 seems like a long time to wait for this fix  ;-)
Comment 3 David Cantrell 2006-03-23 15:41:56 EST
You're right.  I meant RHEL-3 U8.

Can the customer provide the kickstart file used for this installation?

The install.log file shows several scriplet failures due to missing prereqs. 
Most of those look like Cisco packages.  But there are a number of RHEL base
packages that are not installed early on like they should be.

The kickstart file mentions two package groups that don't exist in RHEL: ECS
Desktop and Lab Tools.  If the comps.xml file has been modified, it's possible
an ordering problem was introduced there.
Comment 13 Brian Long 2006-03-29 10:45:15 EST
What I don't understand is why I see coreutils installed before tcl, but tcl
complains "ln" is not found.  This is my only concern at the moment.
