Hi Experts,

I am pretty new to installing stuff, and recently i am planning to install openstack on RHEL 7 VM.

But when i give the command sudo yum install -y openstack-packstack, i am getting the below error.

Error: Package: openstack-packstack-2015.1-0.1.dev1537.gba5183c.el7.noarch (openstack-kilo) Requires: python-docutils You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

can anyone help on how to resolve this, from the above error, i might need to install python-docutils, but the didnt have any instructions on how to get that.

If you have the actual RHEL7 installation media then you are presumably registering with an RHN account. If you're doing that then, again, presumably you have sufficient entitlements for RHEL.

When you register you'll want to auto-attach your entitlements:

# subscription-manger register --auto-attach

If you are already registered but have not attached entitlements:

# subscription-manager attach --auto

Either way, once you have a registered RHEL7 instance with the proper RHEL entitlements attached simply enable the Optional and Extras repositories:

# subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms --enable rhel-7-server-extras-rpms

After doing this, the openstack-packstack installation should run cleanly.

I would make sure you have epel repo enabled. If you still can not install with that then it is possible to download the rpm from here

Hi dexter,

thanks for your workaround, but still after getting python-docutils and the epel repo, i am still getting the error, and now i did it with any installing openstack-packstack --skip-broken, but now when i give the next command packstack --allinone, i am getting the packstack not found err

And this is what i get when i run the install openstack-packstack with skip broken.

So what are the Repos you have enabled?
