Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1283927
Missing dependency for rear pkg in RHEL 7.2 channel
Last modified: 2016-11-03 20:28:42 EDT
Description of problem:
The rear-1.17.2-1.el7.noarch has a missing dependency called syslinux. Without this package you will not be able to create any isos from rear and a rear mkrescue will end into an error:
ERROR: Could not find 'isolinux.bin'. Maybe you have to set ISO_ISOLINUX_BIN  or install the syslinux package ?
Aborting due to an error, check /var/log/rear/rear-rf-test.log for details
Installation from EPEL channel does install the syslinux requirement.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.17.2-1 on RHEL 7.2 (and maybe in other releases, if you added it also to RHEL 6...)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install rear -y
2. rear mkrescue
3. yum install syslinux -y
4. rear mkrescue
rear mkrescue runs into an error due missing dependency syslinux.
The rear pkg should have pkg syslinux as a dependency.
I will provide patch to rear.spec file soon.
