Description Debarshi Ray 2007-04-21 10:47:18 UTC
Description of problem:

Using the --downloaddir option in yum-downloadonly plugin generates a stack
backtrace due to an AttributeError.

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

yum-downloadonly-1.0.3-1.fc6.noarch.rpm   from Fedora Extras; and yum-3.0.3

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Enable plugins in YUM and provide the --downloadonly option to YUM to
activate the yum-downloadonly plugin.

2. Use the --downloaddir option to YUM to change the default download directory.

3. Run YUM.

eg., # yum --downloadonly --downloaddir=/tmp/foo install R-devel

Actual results:

You get a stack backtrace due to a AttributeError caused by the following
statement on line number 38 in /usr/lib/yum-plugins/downloadonly.py:

Expected results:

One would expect YUM to obediently download all the packages in the specified

Additional info:

The exception is raised since 'repo' is an instance of 'YumRepository' and it
has no member function named 'set'. What it has instead is 'setAttribute'.

Please find attached a patch

issue on my system.
