anaconda --version isn't supported
Last modified: 2009-07-22 17:13:20 EDT
Description of problem:
anaconda does not support --version.
It would be nice to know the version when operating in an install or
rescue environment, especially in the development phase.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Usage: anaconda [options]
anaconda: error: no such option: --version
anaconda version 188.8.131.52
Note that 'rpm -q anaconda' does not work in an install or rescue
environment -- there's no RPM database.
Is the environment variable $ANACONDAVERSION not set?
Honestly, this isn't going to happen. anaconda displays its version number whenever it starts up, so rescue mode or the install can always be restarted if you really need to catch the version number.
We will, however, consider patches.
