Description Bryan Rood 2006-03-27 19:53:28 EST
Description of problem:

Your Technical Support Dept for ES AS4 suggested I open this ticket.  Oracle 
and other software vendors provide detailed documentation with build numbers 
for all packages required for Linux to run their software.  Your installation 
process does not list the version numbers and according to Tech Support there 
is no way to tell what default packages come with AS4Update2 or Update1, etc.  
As simple text file on the CD or an HTML file on RHN with the complete list of 
packages included with each update would help us determine which version of 
Linux ES best suites our situation.  I think this request is reasonable and not 
that difficult either.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
AS3 Update 4, Update 5, Update 6.
AS4 Update 1, Update 2.

How reproducible:

Very easily.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Call Tech Support
2.  Give them your customer ID
3.  Ask them for the location of the list of what packages come with AS4 
Actual results:

1. Tech Support can't supply any information.
2. Your installation doesn't include the actual version numbers!

Expected results:

Tech Support should be able to point me to a list on the CD itself, an HTML 
page with all the packages listed, or a document they can send me.

Additional info:

Go Bears!

You're asking for a list of packages on the CD?

$ ls RedHat/RPMS
Comment 4 Bryan Rood 2006-04-04 18:29:05 EDT
Not a list of packages on the CD.  A list of all packages with version numbers 
in the distribution. There were only 18 packages listed in the folder specified 
above.  When I install Redhat, I should be able to easily see what all the 
packages are that I am putting on the system.

Thank you.

The filenames in RedHat/RPMS on the install media contain the version numbers.
I'm not trying to be evasive, I'm just trying to understand how that is

Of course, since there are multiple install CDs in a release, you will need to
look at all of them.
Comment 6 Mike McLean 2006-08-21 11:49:01 EDT
Since I haven't heard back, I'm closing this as NOTABUG. A simple examination of
the installation media should provide the information that was asked for.
