Found a minor bug in puppet/provider/package/nim.rb. Filesets fail to install. After removing the single quotes around the “filesets” argument to nimclient, works fine. I have been talking with James Turnbull about this and he suggested I file a bug. See the diff below.

[root@autobuild-m /]# diff /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/puppet/provider/package/nim.rb /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/puppet/provider/package/nim.rb.orig

33c33 < nimclient “-o”, “cust”, “-a”, “installp_flags=acgwXY”, “-a”,

“lpp_source=#{source}”, “-a”, “filesets=#{pkg}”

nimclient “-o”, “cust”, “-a”, “installp_flags=acgwXY”, “-a”, “lpp_source=#{source}”, “-a”, “filesets=‘#{pkg}’” [root@autobuild-m /]#
