Missing package dependency
Last modified: 2010-04-30 16:28:58 EDT
Description of problem:
/sbin/weak-modules calls "nm".
nm is provided by the binutils package, which is not a dependency of module-init-tools. If binutils isn't installed then /sbin/weak-modules shows errors about not being able to run nm ('xargs: nm: No such file or directory')
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The addition of:
Requires (pre): binutils
in the specfile should fix it.
Once there, weak-modules also calls mkinitrd, and it don't depend on it.
I was able to get a machine install without mkinitrd with this %packages section on the kickstart:

How is this a duplicate of #463777 ?
That bug is about calling nm without passing any parameters. This bug is about RPM package dependencies. They are both regarding nm, but that is as far as I see the similarity go.
This actually got fixed as part of 463777 is what I mean :)
