YUMng throws exception on RHEL4

Reported by: davisj <[email protected]…> Owned by: jjneely
Priority: minor Milestone: Bcfg2 1.2.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


With yum 2.4.3 on a rhel4 client, python 2.3. YUMng throws the following exception.

Reading Local RPMDB 
Baseurl(s) for repo: ['http://server/mrepo/rhel4-i386/RPMS.all/']

The value of pkg, dest[pname] and data at this point in the code are "('kernel', 'i686', '0', '2.6.9', '89.0.20.EL')", "{'i686': ('0', '2.6.9', '89.EL')}", and "[('i686', ('0', '2.6.9', '89.0.20.EL'))]" respectively.

The following patch against trunk seems to fix the issue though I'm not certain it wouldn't introduce other problems.

  • Status changed from new to assigned

This bug is now superceded by bug # 935 as the YUMng code has been mostly rewritten.

I'll leave this open as this does apply to the code attached to 935.

I think that we should be ok with the new yum24 driver. It seems to have appropriate guards.
