Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 104655
Up2date freezes starting to install all available Servern Beta 1 updates
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
Up2date freezes after successful download of Red Hat Linux (Severn) 9.0.93 -
Beta Updates. Happens with grapchical and text mode up2date clients.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Full install (all packages) Servern from CDRs (Iso)
2. Add channel Red Hat Linux (Severn) 9.0.93 - Beta Updates
3. Start up2date and select ALL updates (kernel, gdm, and all other updates)
Dependencies are resolved without problems
All updates are successfully downloaded
up2date(-nox) freezes at the begin of the installation process (tested: 1 hour
no screen or harddisk activity, 100% cpu load)
Sucessful installation of all avialable Severn Beta 1 update packages
I have the same problem here as mentioned above as well as two other problems:
I did a fresh install of severn and ran up2date to install all the beta
updates. I had made the mistake to enable GPG Sig checking for all files and
since the beta pakages have no sig I had to click alot of times on "yes
install anyway" (I know its my own fault :) after downloading 20% of the files
up2date locked up! If you disable GPG Sig checking it downloads fine but if
you enable it and you manualy give your okay to install it freezes as well.
The next problem is that up2date is selecting aspell even though the latest
version seems to be installed already. If you don't remove this package
up2date will complain about it and stop the entire update process. I would
prefer it if up2date would only tell you about it and continue updateing.
problem still exists in:
I installed the Fedora beta2 yesterday and noticed it still ships with up2date-
3.9.29-2. When I run up2date from a shell I get loads of lines with "libglade-
WARNING ** Error loading image..." and up2date (subscribed to severn-beta2
channel) again shows me that aspell 0.50.3-15 and xemacs-el 21.4.14-1 even
though they are already installed!
Thanks for fixing this.
should be resolved in current versions (4.2.x in rhel3, and
4.3.x in fc2)
