YUM dependency resolution error for rhnsd against official spacewalk repository
Last modified: 2017-09-28 14:08:54 EDT
Description of problem:
YUM install commands against the official spacewalk repositories fail because "rhnsd" appears to be missing from the repodata.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Uvh http://yum.spacewalkproject.org/2.0/RHEL/6/x86_64/spacewalk-repo-2.0-3.el6.noarch.rpm
2. yum install rhn-client-tools rhn-check rhn-setup rhnsd m2crypto yum-rhn-plugin
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: rhn-setup-2.0.1-1.el6.noarch (spacewalk)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Successful dependency resolution.
Installation succeeds if all packages are downloaded and installed from a local directory. Manually reviewing the primary.xml.gz file suggests rhnsd is missing.
My mistake. There was some confusion about the server and client repositories.
Using the 2.0-client repo (which is what I had downloaded manually) works as expected.
This BZ closed some time during 2.5, 2.6 or 2.7. Adding to 2.7 tracking bug.
