Description Jan Hutař 2007-12-14 03:10:57 EST
Description of problem:
While creating yum test I have noticed that yum did not shows correct values of 
error and debug levels set with -e/-d option in the yum shell.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.2.8-2.fc8
3.0.1-5.el5


How reproducible:
always


Steps to Reproduce:
[root@pok ~]# yum -d0 shell
> config debuglevel

[root@pok ~]# yum -d1 shell
> config debuglevel

[root@pok ~]# yum -d2 shell
Loading "refresh-updatesd" plugin
Loading "skip-broken" plugin
Setting up Yum Shell
> config debuglevel
debuglevel: 2

[root@pok ~]# yum -d3 shell
Loading "refresh-updatesd" plugin
Loading "skip-broken" plugin
Running "config" handler for "skip-broken" plugin
Yum Version: 3.2.8
COMMAND: yum -d3 shell 
Installroot: /
No argument to shell
Setting up Yum Shell
> config debuglevel
debuglevel: 3

[root@pok ~]# yum -d100 shell
Loading "refresh-updatesd" plugin
Loading "skip-broken" plugin
Running "config" handler for "skip-broken" plugin
Yum Version: 3.2.8
COMMAND: yum -d100 shell 
Installroot: /
No argument to shell
Setting up Yum Shell
> config debuglevel
debuglevel: 100

  
Actual results:
# yum -d1 shell
> config debuglevel
<no output>


Expected results:
# yum -d1 shell
> config debuglevel
debuglevel: 1


Additional info:
This seems really low priority, mostly I'm only curious if it is a bug or a 
feature.

It is similar with "-e" option and "config errorlevel", but this seems to be 
fixed in F8 and broken in RHEL5:

--- RHEL5 3.0.1-5.el5 ---

# yum -e1 shell
Loading "refresh-updatesd" plugin
Loading "skip-broken" plugin
Setting up Yum Shell
> config errorlevel
errorlevel: 1

--- F8 3.2.8-2.fc8 ---

# yum -e1 shell
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
> config errorlevel
errorlevel: 2
