I usually just do something like 'rpm -Uvh --root /owl *.rpm' and save the output of the installation -- RPM resolves all dependencies and re-orders the packages to meet the dependency tree. Then it's just a matter of following that order and it's quite clear where a new package or a new dependency should go. Frankly, I still fail to understand why we are doing it manually instead of relying on RPM's dependency solver. Personally, I'm not using 'make installworld' at all: I have lists of packages I use for a specific usage scenario and install them using just one transaction. It's quick, resolves dependencies, and is nice looking. :). > Should I step in to do that, or you'd like to do that yourself? The primary issue was the extraction of the new RPM out of the installation media. I've just committed my version of it (I'm not happy about the way I did it, but it works). I guess we need to drop all legacy stuff from installworld.sh now. -- (GM)
