Description Kurt Seifried 2014-08-13 17:17:52 UTC
Description of problem:

This seems to be https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1090181 which claims it got fixed, but apparently not.

Install virt-manager and deps using yum.
Run virt-manager, it says "python requires additional software, Additional software is required, libvirt-daemon-config-network"
Obviously this should be a dependency that gets installed at install time, but when you run the program.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

F20 with virt-manager-1.0.1-3.fc20

How reproducible:

see above

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install virt-manager
2. run virt-manager
3.

Actual results:

requires additional software install

Expected results:

deps installed at install time, not run time

Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2014-08-15 15:22:35 UTC
Thanks for the report, but libvirt-daemon-config-network is not strictly a virt-manager requirement, which is why we don't have a hard RPM dependency and instead recommend at run time. If you know what you are doing, you can cancel the run time package install and use virt-manager just fine connecting to a remote machine for example.

And this isn't just academic, multiple people complained about this which is what prompted the change. If this were debian/ubuntu we'd do something like Suggests: libvirt-daemon-config-network but that's not an option in Fedora. So this is NOTABUG
