my RPM will be in charge of creating the initial database.
huh, good luck with that :) And that is less
doable for the "DB in other host" approach because it would require asking some questions to the user 'a-la wizard' in the moment of RPM installation, and IIRC this is not supported, right?
Right. (The only system
I've seen that asks you configuration questions when installing packages is apt-get.)
do you mean debconf right ?
But, as I've explained my targets above, my ideal RPM would consist of one that obligues you to install one of these packages as a strong dependency:
a) mysql b) posgresql
And, if (a) is selected, also have a sub-dependency to perl-DBD-mysql. If (b) is selected, have a sub-dependency to perl-DBD-Pg.
Is that doable with current RPM technology and/or OpenSuseBuildService?
according to my knowledge, no, you cant. -- "A computer is like an Old Testament god, with a lot of rules and no mercy. " Cristian Rodríguez R. Platform/OpenSUSE - Core Services SUSE LINUX Products GmbH Research & Development http://www.opensuse.org/
