RE: Install order


No, I am not talking about those 'hpasm, hprsm etc' packages but
vlan_init-1.0.1e-1.linux.rpm, which only contains the script, config
files and text file to configure
VLAN's on HP server.

Thank you for the help, actually to put this package to the %post
section worked.

Are you talking about the HP server management tools RPMs (hpasm, hprsm
etc.)? I install them post-install, post-reboot. They are quite
haphazardly packaged - I found my /etc/shadow gone when I included these
RPMs in the install tree. They have other problems too, viz:

- Some of them are packaged with rpm v3, so if I sign them with rpm v4
(to provision via my RHN satellite), they become corrupted. I need to
run up2date --nosig only for them.
- They include files which are deleted as part of post-installation
configuration - a one-time configuration utility is installed in /sbin
which will delete itself at the end of its own first run. Messes up rpm
- They create symlinks in %post (and delete them in %preun) instead of
packaging those in.
- Some of them run gcc in %post to compile modules for the running
kernel. To be fair, I don't know how this can be avoided.
