libvirt RPM should require nc
Last modified: 2009-12-14 16:23:20 EST
Description of problem:
libvirt depends on nc to enable "remote virt-manager" over ssh; libvirt RPM
should require nc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
libvirt RPM should require nc, preventing problem.
oh, right, I will look at this, sound right to me, we did this for the fedora
package but it is missing from RHEL-5 <grin/>
