Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 400711
Last modified: 2008-01-06 10:28:47 EST
Description of problem:
iotop needs python >= 2.5 and kernel 2.6.20 or newer:
Could not run iotop as some of the requirements are not met:
- Python >= 2.5 for AF_NETLINK support: Not found
- Linux >= 2.6.20 with I/O accounting support: Not found
These requirements should be added to the rpm requirements so that you can't
install iotop when you don't met the requirements.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
on which system are you running it?
Its only shipped in f7,f8 and rawhide where python < 2.5 and kernel < 2.6.20
where never shipped.
RHEL-5. The package installled without a problem, but obviously didn't run when
it checked its requirements
And thats the reason why its not in epel4/5 .
I can add the requiments but I don't think it makes sense to add them for
distros where its not shipped at all.
OK, closing as NOTABUG for now.
