Virt-who can start normally
virt-who-0.20.2-1.el7sat.noarch can install and run normally in RHEL7 arch
What version of RHEL 6 was this tested on and which RHEL 6 repositories were enabled?
Evgeni added a fix for this in the PR added as an external tracker.
This issue is caused by missing python-argparse package, can install it by manual, but it's more better if virt-who spec file can add "Requires" for this package.
I used released RHEL6 to do the test. Thanks.
verified it, python-argparse is required for virt-who already,
# rpm -qp --requires virt-who-0.20.4-1.el6sat.noarch.rpm
config(virt-who) = 0.20.4-1.el6sat
python(abi) = 2.6
python-rhsm >= 1.10.10
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(PartialHardlinkSets) <= 4.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1
