Description Ian Pilcher 2008-06-09 12:13:31 EDT
Description of problem:
libvirt depends on nc to enable "remote virt-manager" over ssh; libvirt RPM
should require nc.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 5.2 dom0 on "system A"
2. Install RHEL 5.2 w/ virt-manager on "system B"
3. Configure systems for "remote virt-manager over ssh" -- create and
   propagate ssh key, etc.
4. 'yum remove nc' on system A
5. Start virt-manager on system B and attempt to connect to system A.

Unable to open a connection to the libvirt management daemon.
