On some of our Red Hat 9 machines,

will fail with the message


Install Tree Not Found

Just for the record:


The problem seems to be that redhat-config-packages *requires* a distribution tree, presumably to find out about dependencies. It will use the (partial) one installed via the "comps" package if it exists, but look for an install media if it doesn't. Here is a little trick I'm (now) using to trick redhat-install-packages into installing when I have neither the comps package nor a distribution tree

cat > .discinfo <<EOF

My message somehow got chopped off at this point, but see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=116107 for the full story.
