Description Uwe Beck 2004-11-20 13:05:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020 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): up2date-4.3.53-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. use up2date to update RHEL4_BETA2 2. 3. Actual Results: /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources removed during up2date update Expected Results: should work correct Additional info:

Does RHEL4 up2date use a new philosophy? # rpm -qf /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources redhat-release-3.95ES-3 But before up2date-4.3.53-1 # rpm -qf /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources up2date-4.2.38-1 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.
