Description Jan Pazdziora 2008-11-12 13:23:26 UTC
Description of problem:

The Spacewalk/ module executes /usr/bin/, /usr/bin/, and /usr/bin/ without Requiring spacewalk-admin. That does not seem correct.

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

# rpm -qf /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Spacewalk/

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. grep /usr/bin /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Spacewalk/
2. Take the program names, do rpm -qf on them, and see if spacewalk-setup requires those packages.
Actual results:

        Spacewalk::Setup::system_or_exit([ "/usr/bin/",
    my @opts = ('/usr/bin/',
  Spacewalk::Setup::system_or_exit([ "/usr/bin/",

All are contained in spacewalk-admin.

# rpm -q --requires spacewalk-setup | grep spacewalk-admin | wc -l

Expected results:

The spacewalk-setup package should require spacewalk-admin.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Jan Pazdziora 2008-11-12 13:27:52 UTC
Grepping /usr/bin on the whole rpm -ql spacewalk-setup file list, we should also Require


and whatever package has /usr/bin/cobbler-setup.

Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2008-12-12 10:22:58 UTC
Added in 5ebc91ba39dcfb02a4524f1b63153dc987a85b4b, except for the /usr/bin/cobbler-setup which does not seem to have any package yet.
