Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 436600
I shouldn't be forced to have iscsi-initiator-utils on my notebook
Last modified: 2008-03-08 06:08:51 EST
Description of problem:
Is it really necessary to bring in iscsi-initiator-utils (moreover currently
broken, bug 436175 and bug 436341 ; but that's not the point)? Why should I need
on my notebook where I have kvm installed for testing other distros running
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Yes because libvirt now support Storage handling and iSCSI is one
of the most prevalent networked storage support for domain
virtualization, libvirt support for iSCSI requires iscsi-initiator-utils.
So I guess it's normal to have that new dependancy.
If you want to argue about this, please join the libvirt mailing
list and discuss the issue, but I don't see how to change just the
packaging to change this,
