Description Laura Novich 2015-12-14 05:55:24 EST
Description of problem:
When running yum install virsh, it returns - no package available. This is not wrong, but it does not help the user as it doesn't give any alternative.

Instead of displaying:
No package virsh available.
Error: Nothing to do

It would be better to state:

No package virsh available.
Error: Nothing to do

virsh is included in the libvirt-client package. Run yum install libvirt-client to install virsh.

or something similar.
