Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 49213
/etc/popt support broken
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:47 EDT
Description of Problem:
Cmdline-aliases defined in /etc/popt are not working anymore (with 4.0.2 it
Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo 'rpm alias -C --changelog' >/etc/popt
2. rpm -q -C rpm
-C: unknown option
tested with 4.0.3-0.66 and -0.69
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".
BTW, this was checked with rpm-4.0.3-0.72.
Woops, found the problem. Fix in rpm-4.0.3-0.72, apologies for the misinfo.
