rpm database problem
Last modified: 2008-08-23 23:37:57 EDT
I think I have stumbled over a problem with the rpm database.
$ rpm -q --whatprovides /path/to/binary
should return the package name that owns a given binary or file.
For two programs so far, after my f8->f9 upgrade, it hasn't.
These programs were bind-utils and liferea - not uncommon programs.
'bind-utils' is a package not a program so that won't work
rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/bin/liferea works fine for me
Panu, do you concur this is not a bug?
rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/bin/dig
rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/bin/liferea
told me that the binary was not owned by any package.
After re-installing the packages using yum, they are now owned by something.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one
month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
There's no more data to provide, and I can't change this to
