Description Joseph Womack 2006-10-25 22:35:53 UTC
Description of problem:
When you perform a minimal install and then try to install redhat-config-netboot
it fails on dependencies.  The command pxeos is a command line tool (according
to the documentation) and should not require X, gnome, etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 4 Update 3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a minimail install of RHEL 4 Update 3
2. Reboot, login as root, mount CD(s)
3. rpm -ivh system-config-netboot-0.1.32-1_EL4.i386.rpm
Actual results:
[root@Installer rhel4]# rpm -ivh
warning: ./disk1/RedHat/RPMS/system-config-netboot-0.1.32-1_EL4.i386.rpm: V3 DSA
signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e
error: Failed dependencies:
 gnome-python2 is needed by system-config-netboot-0.1.32-1_EL4.i386
 gnome-python2-canvas is needed by system-config-netboot-0.1.32-1_EL4.i386
 pygtk2 is needed by system-config-netboot-0.1.32-1_EL4.i386
 pygtk2-libglade is needed by system-config-netboot-0.1.32-1_EL4.i386
    Suggested resolutions:

Expected results:
Perform the install and have pxeos available to use.
