Description of problem:
I downloaded and installed the latest RHEL5 Client iso's dated 20070126.  When I tried to install frysk via the "yum install frysk", I found that neither "frysk" nor its dependencies(i.e. glib-java-devel) are in the channel for Client.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5 Client iso.
2. Try to install frysk with "yum install frysk"

Actual Results:
[root@frysk64 ~]# yum install frysk
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories

Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: frysk
Nothing to do

Expected Results:
Should install frysk.

frysk is part of the workstation option.  You will need to have the necessary
entitlements for workstation and make sure that you are subscribed to the
workstation child channel in RHN.

Comment 2 Andrew Cagney 2007-02-02 22:21:29 UTC
The underlying question here is what tools should be included in the client ISO
as they are useful as syadmin tools.

Looking at the client iso gcc, systemtap, and gdb are present, but frysk is not.

Comment 4 Dennis Gregorovic 2007-02-04 22:20:49 UTC
I've made a change to comps.xml that moves frysk from workstation to Client Core.  

Comment 5 James Laska 2007-02-05 14:53:57 UTC
cagney: frysk is on the the client ISO ... it's just not enabled unless you have
a workstation installation number.  Also, I suspect since frysk is tech-preview
having it on the Workstation option is intentional?


Comment 6 Andrew Cagney 2007-02-05 17:33:00 UTC
The command line utilties are "supported", the graphical interface is still

Comment 7 James Laska 2007-02-05 19:20:19 UTC
Does this mean moving just the base frysk package, or moving all frysk subpackages?

Comment 9 James Laska 2007-02-05 20:18:28 UTC
Installing frysk and frysk-gnome on a Client-only install appears to not pull in
unwanted dependencies.

$ yum localinstall frysk-

 Package                 Arch       Version          Repository        Size

Package moves between options are very concerning at this point.  While this is
just two packages moving around, package add/moves/deletes have been known to
cause a trickle affect that could potentially disrupt the distrobution.  I'm
ACKing this fix for 5.0.
