Description Matt Wilkinson 2016-01-13 15:55:04 EST
Description of problem:
According to https://www.open-scap.org/download/ instructions for downloading openscap on RHEL 5, the base package required is openscap-utils which also provides the oscap command. When attempting to install the spacewalk-oscap package on RHEL 5, the install fails because the package requires a dependency of openscap-scanner, which is not available for RHEL 5. The oscap command is provided by openscap-utils instead. 

The spacewalk-oscap package should be updated to require a dependency of openscap-utils instead. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Spacewalk 2.4, RHEL 5.11

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install openscap and openscap-utils
2. install spacewalk-oscap

Actual results:
error: Failed dependencies:
        openscap-scanner is needed by spacewalk-oscap-2.4.1-1.el5.noarch

Expected results:
successful installation of spacewalk-oscap

Additional info:

After forcing an install of spacewalk-oscap using rpm --nodeps, Spacewalk successfully works with RHEL 5 and only the openscap and openscap-utils packages installed.
