Description wayne 1999-05-14 07:30:36 UTC
SysVinit-2.74-11.i386.rpm does not include the consolehelper
binary, even though it references it via several symlinks.
The package also does not list usermode-1.9-1.i386.rpm as a
dependency (usermode is the package that, quite
inexplicably, contains /usr/bin/consolehelper).

Since (AFAIK) the usermode package does not even use the
consolehelper binary, perhaps it should be moved into the
SysVinit package.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-05-14 22:14:59 UTC
I have verified these to be true.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-17 21:28:59 UTC
consolehelper is included in the usermode package because
it shares the same source-code base....

Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-02 22:07:59 UTC
dependencies were screwed. Fixed in a nerw release of the package.

Will show up on rawhide shortly.
