Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187012
Simple Package List with Build Numbers
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 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.
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
1. Tech Support can't supply any information.
2. Your installation doesn't include the actual version numbers!
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.

You're asking for a list of packages on the CD?
$ ls RedHat/RPMS
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.
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.
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.
