I think I do. So when installing a rpm package (via ALFS XML)
and rpm database will be created on the fly (converting ALFS-dependancy DB
to RPM DB) the package install's itselfs (doing whatever RPM does)
and then the changes in the RPM DB are read into the ALFS DB?

Do I understand this correctly?

btw: It might be usefull to upload these kind of explanations to the
alfs-website. At least it would be an basis for documentation.
