Description Jamie Lennox 2015-01-23 04:09:59 UTC
This has probably never come up as dbus-python is required by almost everything however on fresh install of a F21 cloud image i yum installed freeipa-client and ran ipa-client-install to get: 

[fedora@keystone ~]$ sudo ipa-client-install
There was a problem importing one of the required Python modules. The
error was:

    No module named dbus

This was fixed by yum installing dbus-python. 

It would appear this package should be listed in the RPM requirements.

Good catch. We require dbus-python in freeipa-server package, but the code that uses Python was moved to other, client exposed package.
