Description Jon Stanley 2007-10-31 17:19:41 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #360581 +++

* this is the RHEL instance of this bug *

There's some weird dependencies going on between firstboot and system-config-*.
 This came up in RHEL, however it exists in Fedora and is likely best fixed
there first.  The problem is:

system-config-keyboard <-> firstboot

The problem comes in removing iptables-ipv6, which (properly)
system-config-securitylevel-tui depends on. system-config-securitylevel depends
on s-c-sl-tui for some reason (it also doesn't pull in iptables-ipv6 by itself
for some reason).  So in order to remove iptables-ipv6, you have to remove
firstbbot, firstboot-tui, s-c-k, s-c-sl, and s-c-sl-tui.  All of those make
sense except for system-config-keyboard, which itself should not require
firstboot - though firstboot should require s-c-k.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Unfortunately it's too late in the life cycle of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 to fix this bug. The upcoming 5.10 update is going to be the first production phase 2 release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. From phase 2 on we'll be addressing primarily security and critical issues, therefore I'll close this bug.

This issue is fixed in current package versions, I've also cloned this bug for Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6 which still has the dependency: bug #952125.
