Description James Antill 2008-09-18 17:05:54 EDT
Description of problem: Because of the way rpm eats C-c/SIGINT we have a checkSignals call in yum, which will exit if rpm tells us that a SIGINT occured. This bug means instead of exiting we'll traceback. However this is even more important in 5.3 because with: rpm-126.96.36.199-4.el5.i386 yum-3.2.19-8.el5.noarch yum-rhn-plugin-0.5.3-25.el5.noarch ...then we get a traceback if the user interupts a download with RHN, due to how RHN doesn't work the same as non RHN. The patch is literally: diff --git a/rpmUtils/miscutils.py b/rpmUtils/miscutils.py index 64e232e..e9fb3e5 100644 --- a/rpmUtils/miscutils.py +++ b/rpmUtils/miscutils.py @@ -413,5 +413,5 @@ def checkSignals(): signal.SIGPIPE, signal.SIGQUIT, signal.SIGHUP]): - exit(1) + sys.exit(1) ...and changes C-c from producing ~50 lines of traceback vs. just exiting. Another change needs to be done to rhn-plugin to produce a nice message as normal yum does, but that's a minor thing.

Note that 5.2 rpm eats the C-c completely, so you need the latest rpm to test (and stopping with a traceback is better than not stopping, so it's not a regression as such).
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-09-18 17:33:08 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update release.
Comment 3 James Antill 2008-09-18 17:54:05 EDT
Ok, I realized I was testing with an old version of python ... with the latest python yum-rhn-plugin and yum works fine with downloads and C-c. So the above is a real edge case again.
