Description of problem:
up2date-4.3.53-1 comes as a fix for bug #138754. Befor I start up2date
the redhat-release-3.95ES-3 rpm was not installed on the system. That
this rpm can not install was the problem in #138754.

Update up2date self is the first step in this update process. Then
up2date ask for restart. I do this.

New Up2date available
New Up2date available
Restarting up2date
Restarting up2date

But then the up2date can not do the rest of updates. Only a kill -9 helps.

Start new up2date:
# up2date&
warning: can't access /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

--> unable to use the RHN

To fix this problem I have install redhat-release-3.95ES-3 by hand.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use up2date to update RHEL4_BETA2

Actual Results:  /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources removed during up2date update

Expected Results:  should work correct

Does RHEL4 up2date use a new philosophy?

# rpm -qf /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

But before up2date-4.3.53-1
# rpm -qf /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

I think up2date should contain /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources. So it is
logic for me.

Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2004-11-22 17:49:16 UTC
redhat-release contains 
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources now (since it
changes between RHEL/Fedora/etc). 

up2date pretty much requires some variant
of *-release to be installed (it would
explicitly Require it, but the package name
changes on different releases, and *-release
is a Base package). 

Aside from #138754, this should be fine for
final release.
