Nathan, I am getting tired of you posting incorrect posts and not
thinking about what you write.  This mailing list is for us to 1) help 
people who are having problems and 2) talk about desired features,

You are misleading people and need to stop.  Your thread about tar.gz
vs. rpm showed a lack of understanding of package management.  Now,
this post shows you don't even understand the commandline switches for 
rpm.  Please do some research before you post here.
