Seems to be an issue with yum.  it tries to import a module (i18n.py)
that isn't in the python search path, when rhn-applet tries to use it.

Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2004-10-14 22:02:50 UTC
a problem with yum?
Can you show me what code in yum you're talking about?

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-10-14 22:10:45 UTC
I only spent a few minutes investigating, but 


tries to import i18n.py which is in /usr/share/yum-cli, which isn't in
the python search path.

Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2004-10-14 22:13:21 UTC
who is using that code?

The only place I can think of it being used is from yum-arch.

Please tell me it's not being called from rhn-applet

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-10-14 22:21:52 UTC
rhn-applet is importing rpmutils (which is owned by yum) which is
importing oldutils (which is owned by yum) which is trying (and
failing) to import i18n (which is owned by yum)

Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-10-14 22:23:35 UTC
CCing rhn-applet owner in case the problem is actually there.

Ah, is it possible that this is related to new rhlp then (see
bug #135780)

Comment 15 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-15 19:37:30 UTC
This still isn't going to work I don't think.

The problem is that up2date includes a module "rpmUtils" but 'import
rpmUtils' is getting the yum rpmUtils...  and since they're different,
I expect other things to break as well :/

Comment 16 Seth Vidal 2004-10-15 21:22:35 UTC
up2date needs to sys.path.insert(0, '/wherever/the/hell/rpmUtils/is')

then we don't have to play this game.

Comment 17 louisgtwo 2004-10-16 20:55:09 UTC
I'm still seeing this error with rhn-applet-2.1.15-2. Their has been
no yum updates in rawhide since this occurred.

Comment 18 Mike Chambers 2004-10-17 12:19:09 UTC
Experiencing the same thing here.  Except after downgrading the kernel
from .624 back to .610, at least the splash screen is now back to
normal.  Although, since the rhn-applet is not starting, that may as
well be why and just coincidence, and this just goes with what is
being discussed at the moment.

Comment 21 Adrian Likins 2004-10-19 18:30:09 UTC
wow, thats lovely. 

Comment 22 Adrian Likins 2004-10-19 19:41:12 UTC
rhn-applet-2.1.16 and up2date-4.3.44 should try to get
rpmUtils from its path first instead of site-packages

Comment 23 Kjartan Maraas 2004-10-28 18:24:08 UTC
Still seeing this with the latest packages from rawhide.

Comment 24 Aaron 2005-06-16 12:37:35 UTC
So does anyone know how to fix it?

Comment 26 John Thacker 2006-10-29 20:19:59 UTC
up2date was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5.  Only FC5 and
FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security fixes
only.  If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please change the
product to Fedora Extras and the version to match.  If you can verify that the
bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version appropriately.

The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists
in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the
version appropriately and update the bug report.

We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now.  The status will be changed
to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security
bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed.

Comment 27 John Thacker 2006-11-05 16:18:56 UTC
Closing per previous message.
