The only abnormal thing I can find from strace is:

ENOENT (No such file or directory)
[pid 31387] write(2, "modprobe: ", 10)  = 10

What is the output of `rpm -q comps`?

Comment 2 Frode Tennebø 2002-11-01 22:43:24 UTC
[ft@leia ft]$ rpm -q comps
package comps is not installed

I could not find comps in any of the packages on the RH8.0 CDs and searching 
for comps on rpmfind only gave:

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-11-05 18:39:39 UTC
Yes, the comps packages is located at RedHat/base/comps.rpm of a Red Hat Linux
install tree and is installed by the installer as a special case, which is why I
asked how you installed.

Comment 4 Frode Tennebø 2002-11-05 23:39:42 UTC
Sorry, I upgraded to 8.0 from a previously upgraded 7.3 installation. I did 
nothing out of the ordinary. I'll try installing it manually when I get RPM 

Comment 5 Frode Tennebø 2002-12-30 14:38:58 UTC
I installed the comps.rpm package manually and now redhat-config-packages works. However it does not explain why the package was left out during the original upgrade.

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-30 18:22:57 UTC
Did you install from CD or from an install tree copied somehow?

Comment 7 Frode Tennebø 2002-12-31 00:09:20 UTC
I _upgraded_ (from 7.3) from the CDs (where I also fetched the missing comps package).

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-10 01:47:25 UTC
There are more assurances in the installer for the comps package to be installed
