RE: Install sequencing



Yes; all the run-time dependencies are correct. The reason I like
breaking things up into multiple rpm transactions is because it provides
more progress information to stdout and stderr. If I remember correctly,
even 'rpm -Uv' is very quiet for a long time if it is working on a large
set of packages....
