Description Karsten Hopp 2007-11-27 05:58:06 EST
Description of problem:
iotop needs python >= 2.5 and kernel 2.6.20 or newer:
> iotop
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):
Comment 1 Adel Gadllah 2007-11-28 08:28:09 EST
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.
Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2007-11-29 05:36:30 EST
RHEL-5. The package installled without a problem, but obviously didn't run when
it checked its requirements
Comment 3 Adel Gadllah 2007-12-01 04:40:28 EST
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.
