Description Enrico Scholz 2001-07-16 20:28:26 EDT
Description of Problem:

Cmdline-aliases defined in /etc/popt are not working anymore (with 4.0.2 it
was ok).

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo 'rpm     alias -C --changelog' >/etc/popt
2. rpm -q -C rpm

Actual Results:

-C: unknown option

Expected Results:

a changelog

Additional Information:
tested with 4.0.3-0.66 and -0.69
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-07-16 20:41:47 EDT
No /etc/popt is still working, but you need to either
	1) execute rpmquery directly
	2) write a helper binary exec as in
		rpm exec -C rpmq --changelog
as /usr/lib/rpm/rpmq is what's executed with, say, "rpm -q --changelog".

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-07-16 20:54:07 EDT
BTW, this was checked with rpm-4.0.3-0.72.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2001-07-16 21:20:55 EDT
Woops, found the problem. Fix in rpm-4.0.3-0.72, apologies for the misinfo.
