Also when trying to schedule a package update via RHN, the scheduled
action will fail with the following output:

Client execution returned "Fatal error in Python code occured [[6]]"
(code -1)



Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2004-04-05 20:11:04 UTC
Ahh. Easy workaround. Add a semicolon to the
end of the line for pkgsToInstallNotUpdate
in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date

That is expected to be a list not a string
by the code. 

I'll take a look and see if I can make it
except either. 

Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2004-04-06 19:41:19 UTC
okay, 4.2.9 should handle this either way

Comment 4 Brian DeFeyter 2004-04-06 20:48:41 UTC
thank you
