RPM dependency /bin/sh

Postby wongck » Sun Jun 28, 2009 4:59 am

I recently installed RPM from sparemint, to install some dev tools rpm.
It seems to be working OK, but seems to complain about not having /bin/sh when checking dependencies. :(
/bin/sh is of course there on the /bin directory.
I can still go ahead installing using the switch --nodeps but I am not sure finishing scripts runs (probably not).

Have anyone had this issue or have a workaround? :?:

BTW, my mint was installed manually & has ext2fs partitions.

Likely the dependency check isn't for the existence of /bin/sh in the filesystem, but for the existence of an installed rpm listed in the rpm database that would have provided /bin/sh. Since you haven't installed your system from rpms, this information isn't there. As long as you actually have the files for the missing dependencies, you're good to go.

Great. Thanks. :D
Funny some dependencies required are reported as entire packages not installed.
I will go ahead and continue to install the dev tools then.
