Brian -

You are a saviour.  If I got paid double-time for the length of time it
took me to find the source of issues like this one, I would be quite
wealthy by now.  Well, maybe not, but the bonus would be nice!

Renaming Sun's crappy RPMs fixed the problem.  I'm not sure why Anaconda
is so finicky about this when they can be installed using rpm by itself,
but at this point I don't much care about that -- it's clear Sun isn't
following the standard (and that I should have caught this).  I will
write Sun to complain even though I'm sure they won't fix it.  Maybe
whomever is in charge of Anaconda development should consider this a
feature request for a better error message than "rpm transaction
failed"?

More detail for those who care/whom I might save any hassle:
jdk-1_5_0_02-linux-i586.rpm

[root myserver rh_es_4]# rpm -qip my_rpms/jdk-1_5_0_02-linux-i586.rpm

Summary     : Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard Edition Development Kit
Description :
The Java 2 Platform Standard Edition Development Kit (JDK) includes both
the
runtime environment (Java virtual machine, the Java platform classes and
supporting files) and development tools (compilers, debuggers, tool
libraries
and other tools).

The JDK is a development environment for building applications, applets
and
components that can be deployed with the Java 2 Platform Standard
Edition
Runtime Environment.

-----------------------------------
Had Sun named this file correctly it would have been (and is now on my
equipment):
jdk-1.5.0_02-fcs.i586.rpm

Following the standard convention which Brian so keenly noted:
<name>-<version>-<release>.<platform>.rpm

The same goes for Sun's previous jdk RPM (they can't even seem to make
up their mind about the name!):
j2sdk-1_4_2-linux-i586.rpm

[root myserver rh_es_4]# rpm -qip my_rpms/j2sdk-1_4_2-linux-i586.rpm

Summary     : Java(TM) 2 Software Development Kit, Standard Edition
Description :
The Java 2 SDK, Standard Edition includes the Java
Virtual Machine, core class libraries and tools used
by programmers to develop Java software applets and
applications. The SDK also provides the foundation
for IDE (Integrated Development Environment) tools
such as Sun's Forte for Java, Community Edition,
the Java(TM) 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE),
Java-based application servers and more.
The Java 2 Software Development Kit, SDK, is a
development environment for building applications,
applets, and components that can be deployed on
the Java platform. The Java 2 SDK software includes
tools useful for developing and testing programs
written in the Java programming language and running
on the Java platform.  These tools are designed to
be used from the command line.  Except for
appletviewer, these tools do not provide a
graphical user interface.
---------------------------------------------------
So that rpm is now:
j2sdk-1.4.2-fcs.i586.rpm

And now the install is working -- at least as far as rpm installation is
concerned.

And I'm on to my next problem...  Which is unrelated and much less of a
concern.  Hope this thread saved someone some hassle.

Best Regards,

Steve
