Description Ralph Rodriguez 2002-08-02 01:47:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
rpm -V --root /mnt/sysimage pkgname in rescue mode returns the message
that all files are missing, when only one file was corrupted.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cp /bin/date /bin/mount
2. reboot, entering rescue mode, using NFS, and agreeing to mount FS's
3. Run: rpm -V --root /mnt/sysimage mount

This will list a number of items missing.

Actual Results:  A number of files will be listed as missing.

Expected Results:  A single entry should be returned reporting:

S.5....T   /bin/mount

Additional info:

This returns the correct info:

chroot /mnt/sysimage
rpm -V mount

Also, this works:

rpm -ihv --replacepkgs --root /mnt/sysimage mount

So the --root is not completely broken.
