From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; T312461)

Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm --redhatprovides sendmail

Actual Results:  no package provides sendmail

Expected Results:  sendmail-8.12.5-7

Additional info:

1. "rpmdb-redhat-8.0-0.20020910.i386.rpm" IS INSTALLED.
2. "rpm --redhatprovides" SHOULD looks into "/usr/lib/rpmdb/i386-redhat-linux/" 
BUT it looks into "/usr/lib/rpmdb/i686-redhat-linux/".
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-10-09 11:43:57 EDT
Yes. I believe the problem is fixed by either
	a) installing the redhat-rpm-config package
	b) installing the final rpm-4.1 release from

If one of the above doesn't fix, reopen this bug, and I'll
give you a configuration workaround.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-10-09 12:29:18 EDT
I need to install rpm-4.1-9 AND uninstall redhat-rpm-config to make it work.

But another problem is:

[root@rh8 root]# rpm --redhatprovides sshd
no package provides sshd

[root@rh8 root]# rpm --redhatprovides openssl
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-10-09 12:42:08 EDT
Oh sorry that I haven't type the path.
I made it.

[root@rh8 root]# rpm --redhatprovides /usr/sbin/sshd
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2002-10-09 14:11:21 EDT
