Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1298351
RHEL 5 install of spacewalk-oscap package requires wrong dependency
Last modified: 2017-09-28 14:09:03 EDT
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
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install openscap and openscap-utils
2. install spacewalk-oscap
error: Failed dependencies:
openscap-scanner is needed by spacewalk-oscap-2.4.1-1.el5.noarch
successful installation of spacewalk-oscap
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.
Switching to MODIFIED. This Bug was resolved by https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1232596#c8
Spacewalk 2.5 was released.
This BZ closed some time during 2.5, 2.6 or 2.7. Adding to 2.7 tracking bug.
