Description Tomas Lestach 2009-03-26 06:54:46 EDT
Description of problem:

Package perl-IO-Capture is not Required by anything on Satellite 5.3.0, we might want to not ship it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090323.0 on i386

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Satellite 5.3.0.
2. Run rpm -q perl-IO-Capture, check that package perl-IO-Capture is installed.
3. Run rpm -e perl-IO-Capture.
4. Run rpm -q perl-IO-Capture again, check that it's now been removed.
Actual results:

Package perl-IO-Capture is installed but it is not required by anything in the Satellite, so it can safely be removed.

Expected results:

Either the package should be Required by some other package, or it should not be on the compose.

Additional info:

On Satellite 5.2.0, perl-IO-Capture was needed by NPalert, but is not required in 5.3.0 any more.
