Description of problem:
Oracle is proposing that the following packages be installed by default as part
of an AS install:
Here is the list of packages that we would like in the default distribution.
We had earlier filed for an enhancement request to include pdksh. Here are the
pdksh-5.2.14-13.i386.rpm - Almost all of Oracle's scripts use ksh.
bc-1.06-5.i386.rpm - Oracle's Configuration Checker utility uses it. "expr"
could not be used, as it overflows for numbers over 32 bit.
procinfo-18-2.i386.rpm - Oracle's Admin tool uses procinfo to gather status.
The earlier environment had it installed by default.
sash-3.4-11.i386.rpm - This is requird from a system administrator
perspective, for system recovery
screen-3.9.9-3.i386.rpm - Useful to have
sysreport-1.2-1.noarch.rpm - Big requirement - helps to get the snapshot of
the system configuration.
expect-5.32.2-65.i386.rpm- Used for changing passwords on the fly. Needed in
the Oracle EBiz deployments.
sudo-1.6.5p2-1.7x.1.i386.rpm - Needed in the field, since many of the admin
scripts need root privileges and the DBAs may not have.

2.Observe that these packages are missing
Actual Results: The packages weren't there.
Expected Results: Would have been nice if the packages got installed.
Tim - here I'm not necessarily saying I agree or not with this proposed set.
However, when we review the package lists for incorporation into each product
variant, we should consider this request then.
