I would like to add RPM to BLFS because it is required for a system to be
compliant with the Linux Standards Base. It doesn't have to be for 6.3, but it
is relatively easy. The install issues:
Requires beecrypt (CMMI)
RPM is basically CMMI, but needs --without-selinux for LFS
The install puts one file, rpm, in /bin instead of /usr/bin. This is dumb
because it requires libraries in /usr/lib. (Yes, it is that way in RHEL.) I
would move it to /usr/bin.
I do want to report on the Linux Collaboration Conference I went to a couple of
weeks ago, but I haven't had time to write up my notes yet. In any case, I
think being LSB compliant would be relatively easy for us. It would just
require a few more packages, but I haven't compiled a full list yet.
