Question What set of bash commands are needed to provide support for rpm?


We are porting bash and rpm and would like to know if there is a minimum set of commands required (or expected) in bash to fully support rpm. Is there a book which describes this minimum set of features?

Thanks in advance,
Lynn

RPM itself supports RPM. You really don't need to rely on any other commands, more along the lines of dependencies in which is going to vary from package to package.

RPM spec file pre- and post- install/uninstall sections use script commands which run in a bash shell, though, and thus bash is needed to be able to install most rpm's. Thus, my original question refers to how much of bash is needed or expected for us to be able to say that rpm is fully functional.
