Description Jeff Bastian 2008-11-26 21:23:57 UTC
Description of problem:
I'm not sure if this is a problem with rpm or popt.

I have a ~/.popt file with some aliases, for example, include the architecture when querying a package:
   rpm alias --arch \
           --qf '%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n' \
           --POPTdesc=$"show package architecture"

This worked in Fedora 8.
   $ rpm -q --arch kernel
   kernel-2.6.26.6-49.fc8.x86_64

After upgrading to Fedora 10, I get
   $ rpm -q --arch kernel
   --arch: unknown option


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.6.0-0.rc1.7.x86_64
popt-1.13-4.fc10.x86_64

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a ~/.popt file with an alias
2. Run rpm with the new alias

  
Actual results:
an error saying 'unknown option'

Expected results:
the alias works

Additional info:
Running strace on rpm shows that it does not even read my ~/.popt file

Comment 1 Panu Matilainen 2008-11-29 17:51:34 UTC
Yup, disabling ~/.popt and /etc/poptrc was supposed to be a temporary workaround for something but didn't remember to flip it back on. Fixed in rpm 4.6.0-rc2 in rawhide now, F10 will get it as an update after a bit of rawhide testing time.
