there seems to be a dependancy error while trying to register my
client with rhn_register.  it looks like there is a missing dependancy
in rhpl for libxml2-python

[root@dhcp204 root]# rhn_register
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_register", line 29, in ?
    from up2date_client import up2date
  File "up2date.py", line 36, in ?
  File "depSolver.py", line 4, in ?
  File "packageList.py", line 17, in ?
  File "up2dateComps.py", line 7, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/comps.py", line 5, in ?
    import libxml2
ImportError: No module named libxml2
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-06-21 16:21:03 EDT
rhpl is a jack of all trades package that is required on pretty much
all installs.  Adding extra dependencies bloats the default install
unnecessarily -- instead, packages which depend on specific rhpl
functionality should add the appropriate lower level requires.
