Description Martin Kletzander 2012-09-19 14:19:20 UTC
Description of problem:
The package 'nc' doesn't require package 'socat' that's needed for running 'nc' with '-U' option.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install minimal Fedora 18 (I used 'text' installation)
2. Install nmap-ncap
3. Run nc with unix socket (e.g. nc -U /), path doesn't matter.
Actual results:
# nc -U /
/bin/nc: line 5: exec: socat: not found

Expected results:
# nc -U /
2012/09/19 13:58:10 socat[614] E open("/", 02002, 0666): Is a directory

Additional info:
Adding socat as a requirement in the spec file should be enough, I guess.

Comment 1 Petr Šabata 2012-10-02 13:17:22 UTC
Hmm, I see socat is required by the base nmap package (which doesn't get pulled in by nmap-ncat).  This is a trivial fix...

(Also, correcting the component.)
