On my RH7 system I had removed /var/www/cgi-bin and
/var/www/html that came with apache. So when installing the new
apache package, I thought to try the following command:
rpm -Fvh --excludepath /var/www/cgi-bin \
--excludepath /var/www/html \
However RPM crashed and coredumped (not a comforting thing in
the middle of an upgrade). Same behavior with the -U flag. I added a
few v's and it died after:
D: getting list of mounted filesystems
So it hadn't actually changed anything yet it seems.
Without the --excludepath it worked fine.
Yup. --excludepath is broke. Fix shortly.

Boy, this one's been there since rpm-3.0.4. Fixed in rpm-4.0.2-0.19 and
