Up2date no channel for fedora...
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
Description of problem:
Please reference ticket# 105649 it is similar to mine, but different
I am trying to register my Fedora Core system using the Up2Date
Utility. AFter I registered. ITs giving me this error when trying to
update material. ITs preventing me from updating anything. Its also
stating in my RHN Profile that I am using RedHat 1.0 ...
Please run rhn_register (or up2date --register on Red Hat Linux 8.0)
as root on this client
Error Class Code: 9
Error Class Info: Invalid System Credentials.

If you choose to submit the bug report, please be sure to include

details on how to reproduce this problem.
This is the profle that is listed in my RHN.
Profile Name: gurus.homelinux.org
Notifications: Errata Email
Auto Errata Update: Auto Errata Update only available for paying accounts
Description: Initial Registration Parameters:
OS: Red Hat Linux
CPU Arch: i686-redhat-linux
Also the up2date agent gives this after trying to register
Invalid Architecture and OS release combination (1, i686-redhat-linux).
Your system has been registered, but will not receive updates
because it is not subscribed to a channel. If you have not yet
activated your product for service, please visit our website at:
...to activate your product.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Up2Date Agent: latest release
How reproducible: Everytime
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run rhn_register or up2date --register
2. run up2date
Actual results: unable to lovate the fedora core channel, or a the
channel responsible for fedora core
Expected results: ability to reside with a channel for fedora
I think that this issue with up2date in combination with the
rhn_register command is well documented in bug ID :114530
If you comment out the line "up2date default" in
the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources file you will no longer have problems
with channel subscriptions, RHN registrations and weird things that
actually ARE useless (from my point of view) for the fedora distro.
This is because fedora users, do not have any option to alter their
channel subscriptions from the RHN official site.
However, that used to be a very usefull utility for the Redhat
distros, where you were able to subscripe your system in a channel
like "updates" and have it been automatically updated with up2date.
So 2 options are available:
1. Either the official support from Redhat Network will stop
completelly for Fedora or
2. Developers will modify the programs, not to include the
rhn_register option for the users
Since my participation in redhat bugzilla is very limited, i don't
alter the status of this "BUG". But if my information was usefull,
than, someone plz change the status of this "BUG"
