RHEL 5 content is not installable from a rhel 5 client.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

2. Subscribe a system to it
3. Try to install some content

Actual results:

https://HOST/pulp/repos/ACME_Corporation/Library/content/dist/rhel/server/5/5.7/i386/resilientstorage/os/repodata/ce654caa186d0618cbc7fe0d64201e3b569cc683e88c743f8415df3866b0d853-primary.sqlite.bz2: [Errno -3]

Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-09-18 12:16:35 EDT
Since this issue was entered in Red Hat Bugzilla, the release flag has been
set to ? to ensure that it is properly evaluated for this release.
Comment 4 Justin Sherrill 2013-10-22 09:27:00 EDT
I think there are two options:

In satellite 5/spacewalk, there was a checksum option added to repo creation that allowed the user to select what checksum they wanted.  Do something similar to that.

Do what you suggest and fetch part of the repo to try to determine.  I think we might eventually want some sort of override to give the user to override what checksum is being used.

Either way i'm good with moving off of mdp2
Comment 5 Mike McCune 2013-10-22 13:22:35 EDT
moving off MDP2

if we could fetch and determine that would be ideal but having a flag where you could force it would work too.
Comment 6 Mike McCune 2014-07-29 15:19:58 EDT
We did resolve some issues around this in Sat6 Beta and you are able to sync and consume RHEL5 content.

We need to ensure that bare repos with only RHEL5 sha1 RPMs uploaded via the API/UI will be able to produce sha1 repodata.

I'll test this out and see the state of this bug.
