Description of problem:
yum install salt-minion produces:
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: salt-0.10.1-1.el6.noarch (epel)
yum search jinja
python-coffin.noarch : Jinja2 adapter for Django
python-jinja.x86_64 : Sandboxed template engine
python-jinja2-26.noarch : General purpose template engine
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
So either the name python-jinja2-26 is wrong, or salt should have that in deps.
Steps to Reproduce:
I'm going to guess you are using RHEL6 as this doesn't happen with CentOS or other rebuilds. The problem you are experiencing is because the python-jinja2 package resides in the RHEL Server Optional (v. 6 64-bit x86_64) Channel.
This is not a bug, you just need to enable the optional channel and you'll be good to go.
But this to my knowledge requires subscription what I don't have and will not buy because of this one package. Any other solution?
If you are using RHEL6, you should be using a subscription service. If not, use CentOS. You *can* also use the CentOS repositories with a RHEL system, but it's not recommended.
