The release notes talk about:

In the spec file of NetworkManager-0.7.0-3.el5
Requires: wpa_supplicant >= 0.5.7-21
should be
Requires: wpa_supplicant >= 1:0.5.7-21

But what I see being updated is:


So at a guess, I'd say that wpa_supplicant has been updated since this 
release note, and that the spec file is still wrong.  But wpa_supplicant 
IS being updated, ergo this is just an install process error.

Thanks Ralph.
