Description Miroslav Franc 2012-11-07 11:57:27 EST
Description of problem: SSIA. Normal installation works which makes me believe the repo configuration is ok, package is there and network connection is ok as well. I tried it several times. yum search finds it and yum install installs it, but it's kinda hard to setup up chroot environment. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): yum-3.2.22-39.el5 How reproducible: for me all the time, I don't have time to chase this, let me know if you need additional information, but it should be very easy reproducible in beaker Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install RHEL5 2. mkdir /chroot 3. yum --installroot=/chroot install openssh-clients Actual results: # yum --installroot=/chroot install openssh-clients Loaded plugins: katello, product-id, security, subscription-manager Updating certificate-based repositories. Unable to read consumer identity Setting up Install Process No package openssh-clients available. Expected results: it works The same thing without --installroot=/chroot from the same machine: # yum install openssh-clients Loaded plugins: katello, product-id, security, subscription-manager Updating certificate-based repositories.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

> but it's kinda hard to setup up chroot environment. If you give --installroot an empty path, it'll create the chroot for you via. package install (assuming it has the correct data, including things like $releasever/certs/etc.) AFAIK this has always worked, although it's much more usable with newer versions of yum where you can do --releasever=/ etc. So I'm going to close this out, as it's really too late in RHEL-5 to add those kinds of UI features. But if you do want them then the first version of yum for RHEL-6 did contain them, and could be rebuilt for RHEL-5.
