Description of problem:

# koan --replace-self
- looking for Cobbler at http://cobbler.cora.nwra.com:80/cobbler_api
the rhpl or ethtool module is required to use this feature (is your OS>=EL3?)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
koan-2.2.2-1.fc17.noarch

Comment 1 James C. 2012-05-22 02:05:56 UTC
This is not required because it's an either/or situation:

def get_network_info():
   try:
      import ethtool
   except:
      try:
         import rhpl.ethtool
         ethtool = rhpl.ethtool
      except:
           raise InfoException("the rhpl or ethtool module is required to use this feature (is your OS>=EL3?)")


Adding a requirement on one would exclude the other, so neither are required and the import error is handled gracefully with a suggestion to install the one available for your distro.

Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2012-05-22 16:02:08 UTC
I disagree.  I filed this bug against *Fedora*, not cobbler in general.  In Fedora, there is no rhpl.ethtool, only python-ethtool, and it should be required by the Fedora koan package.
