Description Neil Forsyth 2001-10-26 04:48:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-3 i686)

Description of problem:
I often install RealPlayer from the RPM as part of a setup script.
I don't want to start and register it so I use the --noscripts
option to rpm. The latest version of rpm that comes with RH7.2 just ignores
this flag.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm --noscripts -Uvh rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2.rpm

Actual Results:  The postinstall.sh script from the rpm is run.

Expected Results:  The package should be installed and no scripts run.
(I can then modify the postinstall.sh script to register MIME
types but not run RealPLayer)

Additional info:

This works OK in RH7.1
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-10-26 08:54:45 EDT
Yup. The mode needs to be first, before --noscripts.
This is gonna be needed to support multimode command
line operations in the future.
