Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 651207
wireshark-gnome not in main RHEL6 repo
Last modified: 2014-06-23 06:24:07 EDT
Description of problem:
wireshark-gnome can not be installed during RHEL6 Beta and RC released.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a repo to Server / Workstation based packages
2. yum install wireshark-gnome
No package to install
wireshark-gnome should install
Currently, the only way for us to install wireshark-gnome is to point a repo to the optional package. I think this is a mistake and should not be in the optional directory. This is not the case for RHEL5 or RHEL4.
[rprice@dhcp53-50 ~]$ yum list | grep wireshark
*Note* Red Hat Network repositories are not listed below. You must run this command as root to access RHN repositories.
wireshark.x86_64 1.2.10-2.el6 @Server
wireshark.i686 1.2.10-2.el6 Server
wireshark-devel.i686 1.2.10-2.el6 Optional
wireshark-devel.x86_64 1.2.10-2.el6 Optional
wireshark-gnome.x86_64 1.2.10-2.el6 Optional
[rprice@dhcp53-50 yum.repos.d]$ cat optional.repo server.repo workstation.repo
name=RHEL6 - Optional
name=RHEL6 - Server
name=RHEL6 - Workstation
This is out of scope of Wireshark (Wireshark works, right?), our release engineers should put the packages to better place.
Which packages are in base and which are in optional is actually owned by product management. Moving to the distribution component to get their input.
wireshark-gnome added to comps.xml
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Package was already part of main variant in 6.5. Closing as current release.
