Description Fabio Massimo Di Nitto 2015-10-09 03:15:33 EDT
As discussed via email with Dan C. bkr client doesn´t work without python-kickstart.
Comment 1 Dan Callaghan 2015-10-11 21:33:22 EDT
Specifically the problem is that the Python (2) kickstart module was moved from the pykickstart package into the python-kickstart package in F23. So we just need to update the Requires and rebuild for F23.

(It would be nice if we had virtual provides for Python modules but that seems to still not be a thing...)
Comment 2 Dan Callaghan 2015-10-11 21:41:49 EDT
Also this is only related to the deprecated cmd_workflow_snake.py in beaker-redhat. However it affects the entire client *if* beaker-redhat is installed.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Upgrade a system to F23, or do a fresh install.
2. Install beaker-client and beaker-redhat-0.1.58-1.fc19.noarch
3. Run bkr

Actual results:
$ bkr
