Description senner.joe 1999-07-01 18:45:02 UTC
rpm 3.0.1 built on AIX 4.3.2 and Dec alpha 4.0 with gcc 2.8.

rpm -qip package_filename.rpm reports "-qip: unknown option"

the same code built on x86 solaris (gcc 2.8) works just
fine. Aix/Dec also fail when built with egcs 2.91.66.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-12-15 18:23:59 UTC
Please reopen this bug if rpm-3.0.3 still exhibits this behavior. I think
I've fixed the problem, but have not access to AIX and/or Tru64 to test.

Comment 2 mp 2000-07-25 12:54:29 UTC
It still happens to me with rpm-3.0.3 and rpm-3.0.4 on Solaris and Linux,
no matter, which compiler /*gcc-2.95 or SUNWspro*/ I'm using.
It smells, it has something to do with (rc- and macro-)files.  
I'm always working with an ``--rcfile'' commandline.
I'm not aware of other major differences to the mainstream[, where it 
obviously works].
