Description Rob Crittenden 2010-06-01 18:21:03 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #598617 +++

Currently ipa-client depends on python-krbv. It is believed to be needed only for uninstalling to get the default kerberos realm so /etc/krb5.keytab can be cleaned up. 

However, python-krbv is not packaged for RHEL6 and this is causing a dependency problem for the RHEL6 tech preview of ipa-client.

Lets investigate if there are alternative mechanisms to get the default krb realm so we can remove the dependency on python-krb5.

Found another place where krbV was being referenced. Updated the patch and rebuilt (ipa-client-2.0-8.el6).
