Description Jan Pazdziora 2015-01-16 15:18:31 UTC
Description of problem:

The krb5-server package has

  Requires(post): systemd-sysv

even if it probably is not needed.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have RHEL 7 installation without systemd, for example in a Docker container with fakesystemd.
2. Run yum install -y krb5-server.

Actual results:

Transaction check error:
  file /usr/lib/rpm/macros.d/macros.systemd from install of systemd-208-11.el7.x86_64 conflicts with file from package fakesystemd-1-14.el7.x86_64

Expected results:

The installation passes, krb5-server does not force the systemd-sys (and thus systemd) installation.

Additional info:

Of course, it is possible to do

   yum swap -y -- remove fakesystemd -- install systemd systemd-libs

but it increases the image size unnecessarily.

This is similar to bug 1104138.

Per discussions in CS/DS meeting of 01/19/2015, moving to RHEL 7.2 (will be fixed as a part of Dogtag 10.2.2 (CS 9)).

FYI - as part of fixing krb5 in Fedora, I have made this change there.
