YUM driver support for CentOS 4

Reported by: jjneely Owned by: jjneely
Priority: minor Milestone: Bcfg2 1.2.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


The Most recent YUMng driver only supports YUM version 3.2.x. CentOS 4 still uses Yum version yum-2.4.3-4.el4.centos.

While we'd like to fully support CentOS/RHEL 4, supporting modern Yum code to handle package installation and dependancy information on this version of Yum is quite challenging and for a very small user base.

The attached YUM24 driver will mostly work in this case. It has a few bugs, one of them is installing the same GPG key over and over creating duplicates. Not to mention the screen scraping of Yum.

If there is sufficient comments on this bug asking for this to be included in Bcfg2 proper that will give me more motivation to get it committed. Of crouse, patches welcome, and you are more than welcome to the attached driver.

Client tool added in 201e98f9a0078c34cb6c26261259db654bcc7e9f. I'm not sure anyone is using the latest bcfg2 client with CentOS4, but this has been tested and work for me.
