Description of problem:

Sat 530 RHEL-4 installer fails with dep errors:

RHN Satellite installation log.
Command: ./install.pl --answer-file=/root/answers.txt

No updates available for this system
ERROR: RPM dependency error.  The message was:
Dependencies should have already been resolved, but they are not.
Unresolved rpm dependencies:

Package cobbler  1.3.4-1.el4 requires tftp-server
Package cobbler  1.3.4-1.el4 requires python-devel
Package cobbler  1.3.4-1.el4 requires createrepo
Package cobbler  1.3.4-1.el4 requires mkisofs 

also rhel-4 cobbler should not depend on createrepo.

cobbler should depend on createrepo, satellite should be using it to generate the repodata for RHEL5 guests.  there is a createrepo in EPEL,  there is also one that was used by brew.
Comment 2 Pradeep Kilambi 2008-12-20 08:55:09 EST
jus fyi, for rest of the deps we need to include tftp-server,python-devel, mkisofs in updates/rhelrpms in the installer.

Comment 3 Pradeep Kilambi 2008-12-22 14:19:44 EST
fixed the rest of the deps in here:

[pkilambi@prad java]$ locate rhelrpms
[pkilambi@prad java]$

these are the only rhelrpms files I can find in our src (cvs/svn/git)..not sure if these are outdated or if we have this file hiding somewhere else. If the above are correct, it now includes tftp-server,python-devel,mkisofs. If there is any other place please lemme know and I can fix there as well.

once we fix the createrepo issue and have the new iso spin I can revalidate the same.

Comment 4 Pradeep Kilambi 2008-12-23 12:25:24 EST
rhelrpms in the devel cvs has been updated to include tftp-server,python-devel,mkisofs. dgilmore also included createrepo in RHEL-4 compose. So we should be all set.

moving to modified.
Comment 5 Pradeep Kilambi 2008-12-23 12:27:14 EST
spacewalk-java now needs new cobbler:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: cobbler >= 1.4 is needed by package spacewalk-taskoma
Error: Missing Dependency: cobbler >= 1.4 is needed by package spacewalk-java

need to include cobbler 1.4 in brew and update the compose to grab the new version of cobbler.

Saw no errors during installation of Satellite 530 (re20081223.2) and after installation, ran the following:

[root@fjs-0-04 ~]# service cobblerd status
cobblerd (pid 26427 26417 26416) is running...

Moving to VERIFIED.

I installed ISO:

Didn't see any install related problems
