Description Milan Kerslager 2007-05-31 23:21:44 UTC
There is no "expect" package. This is really usefull utility. This package is a
part of RHEL and previous versions of Fedora Core.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2007-05-31 23:59:43 UTC
Does 'yum install expect' not work?

Comment 2 Milan Kerslager 2007-06-01 00:07:36 UTC
I see no expect package on F7 disc:

This does not help too (in a case of renamed package):
yum whatprovides \*expect

I see no compat-* packages too. So RealPlayer does not work (needs
compat-libstdc++-33 which is in development tree). But no word in the
RELEASE-NOTES (IIRC) about expect or compat-*.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2007-06-01 00:13:05 UTC
# yum whatprovides \*expect

returns, for me:

expect.x86_64   5.43.0-8  fedora

Similarly, compat-libstdc++-33 exists in the repo; it's just that neither
package is on the install CD.

Comment 4 Milan Kerslager 2007-06-01 00:32:24 UTC
I see. This seems to me a little bit strange - installation DVD is only half
full. Sounds like DVD is only core even no "Core" in the name... :-(
