Description of problem:
If you install open-vm-tools, and you don't have ifconfig, the shutdown/restart/etc scripts will fail, and VMWare will complain. Yum should install net-tools for you so this doesn't happen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100%, as far as I can tell.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a minimal install of Fedora 20 in VMWare, then do 'yum install open-vm-tools' after it boots up.
2. Restart the VM
On boot VMWare will complain that a script has failed.
No such complaint.
This is fixed after you run 'yum install net-tools'
Be even better if upstream could use the 'ip' program
which is installed by default in core.
Here is the complete list of dependencies for the scripts included in the package:
- 'ifup' from 'initscripts' package
- 'ifconfig' from 'net-tools' package
- 'dbus-send' from 'dbus' package
- 'egrep' from 'grep' package
- 'expr/date/dirname' from 'coreutils' package
- 'sed' from 'sed' package
- 'printf/basename' from 'coreutils' package
- 'tar' from 'tar' package
