Description Bruce Jerrick 2009-06-30 19:58:39 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run:
    anaconda --version
Actual results:
    Usage: anaconda [options]
    anaconda: error: no such option: --version

Expected results:
Something like:
    anaconda version

Additional info:
Note that 'rpm -q anaconda' does not work in an install or rescue
environment -- there's no RPM database.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2009-07-10 11:07:40 EDT
Is the environment variable $ANACONDAVERSION not set?
Comment 2 Andy Lindeberg 2009-07-22 17:13:20 EDT
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.
