Re: query post/postun/preun dependencies for a rpm



Yes, I know.

Do you think is it necessary o useful to store in rpmheader information on Require(post) anyway ?  Why should be rpm or a depsolver use it after install ? Apart query it, of course.

They're filtered out from the require *index*, not the headers stored in rpmdb. Very different thing.
