Description of problem:
- The redhat-lsb package is not included in EC2 RHEL5.5 AMIs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
EC2 RHEL5.5 AMIs
- This prevents from using lsb_release, common within deployment tools to establish the distribution name and version
- It was installed in the 5.4 images

Are the following two rpms also required? I noticed they are installed in the RHEL 6 ami's
Customer asked for redhat-lsb to be installed so I'm just going to add that for now. -graphics and -printing do not sound like they belong on an EC2 image.
I added redhat-lsb to the package list in the 5.5 and 5.6 kickstart files. (5.7 will come from 5.6 when that beta starts up)
Confirmed that RHEL 6 already has redhat-lsb installed. Additionally, -graphics and -printing do not appear to depend on anything, so I'm not sure what they're for. I added llim (Brew says he is the maintainer) to the bug for some advice.
redhat-lsb was split to graphics and printing so that user that does not require desktop or desktop features do not have to install the LSB dependencies that goes with it (gnome, qt4, etc). If minimal feature is required, the core package should be suffice.
Fixed a long time ago.
