I see an odd problem with installing SL 6.5. (I use my USB installer, see my other message about it).

The installation works okey, boots into linux okey, login to root okey, but "emacs" does not work because "libotf" is not installed. This is very strange because libotf is listed
as a dependancy for the "emacs" package. "yum install libotf" fixes emacs.

Does anybody else see this?

Looks like an old problem - I saw it with SL 6.2 or 6.3 I believe. It should be gone with 6.5

2 different packages at one time provided libotf.so.*:

openmpi-psm is gone in later SL versions, so the problem doesn't
occur - at least I haven't seen it for some time.

nope - I just made a query, and the issue is still there but with a
different RPM name:

$ cd  /triumfcs/mirror/scientificlinux.org/6.5/x86_64/os/Packages
$ rpm -qp *.rpm --qf='[%{NAME} %{PROVIDES}\n]' |grep libotf.so.
compat-openmpi libotf.so.0
compat-openmpi libotf.so.0()(64bit)
compat-openmpi-psm libotf.so.0()(64bit)
libotf libotf.so.0
libotf libotf.so.0()(64bit)

So I guess whether you trip on this depends on what you are trying
to pull in with an installation.

cheers, etc.
