Description Michael Schwendt 2003-10-07 12:23:54 UTC
This is about updated Fedora Core 0.94:

/etc/yum.conf contains


which causes Yum to fail determining the OS version because the "redhat-release"
package has been replaced with the "fedora-release" package. Changing the line to


works for me.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
yum info 2>&1 | grep Server

Actual Results:  Server: Red Hat Linux Null - i386 - Base

Expected Results:  Server: Red Hat Linux 0.94 - i386 - Base

I can verify that the above solution solves the problem.

patch to fix it

This patch may be a better long term solution.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-07 20:07:55 UTC
Actually, doing *both* is probably best. s/Red Hat Linux/Fedora Core/ in
yum.conf too.

Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2003-10-11 18:45:51 UTC
ok - s/name/provides/ has occurred for the config.py code. Thanks.

I can build a package w/whatever config you want, as, I'm sure, you can.

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-21 20:42:51 UTC
should be fixed in 2.0.4-1

Comment 8 Nils Philippsen 2004-05-12 06:49:33 UTC
yum-2.0.7-1.1 references redhat-release again.

Comment 9 Seth Vidal 2004-05-12 20:57:14 UTC
spoke with sopwith, who made these changes. having it be
redhat-release means it works in fedora core and rhel w/o any change.

that make sense?
so I'm reclosing.
