I was curious to know if anyone has tried building SCAP content on RHEL 5? Given that the
intention of the scap-security-guide rpm package is meant to be built individually on each
platform (RHEL5, RHEL 6, RHEL 7, Fedora), I have attempted trying to build SCAP content on
I am running into all sorts of issues. Here's what I gathered so far:
1) The following python files include 'with' statements, which are not
supported by the latest version of Python on RHEL5 (2.4.3-56):
I was able to work through these errors, using the suggested workaround here:
2) The command 'xmlwf input/checks/*.xml' produces syntax errors for every
input/checks/system_info_architecture_x86.xml:1:0: syntax error
3) When the errors above are corrected in item 1, another error is generated, which
has me stumped:
../shared/transforms/relabelids.py unlinked-fedora-xccdf.xml ssg
File "../shared/transforms/relabelids.py", line 62
ovalfile = ovalfiles.pop() if ovalfiles else None
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
There could be many more issues, but this is as far as I have gotten so far.
I am not much of a python guru so I was hoping someone else could chime in.
