As I understand . . . packages like redhat-lsb are needed for lsb_release which is needed for rpmbuild -
or maybe better put at : http://www.redhat.com/archives/redhat-s ... 00004.html
"...cups is a prerequisite for redhat-lsb? Removing cups broke a few things needing lsb_release."

What do some of you think of this sort of advice (from google/linux questions) ?
"If nothing else needs printing then it's perfectly possible to keep redhat-lsb (using 'lsb_release --all' doesn't need printing) and ditch CUPS w/o any problems. Just add the "--nodeps" switch when using "-e". Adding "tsflags" in yum.conf and using "--repackage" switch with "rpm -e" will dump the uninstalled package in /var/spool/repackage so you can have rollback, just in case."
