Description Tom Wood 2004-05-06 08:53:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040422

Description of problem:
Running yum via sudo generated errors of the type 

warning: setexeccon(user_u:user_r:rpm_script_t) fails from context
"user_u:user_r:user_sudo_t": Invalid argument

which is a separate issue.  But when breaking out of this yum run,
switching user to root, and rerunning "yum -y update", yum states that
there are no actions to take.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo yum -y update
2. Observe problem related to sudo'ing the yum update.
3. Press <ctrl>-c to break out of yum during package installation.
4. su -
5. yum -y update
6. Watch in amazement as there's nothing to do, even though the
previous yum job isn't finished.

Actual Results:  yum didn't finish.

Expected Results:  yum should have installed the rest of the packages.

This is not a duplicate of 122624.  This is a situation where yum
doesn't pick up gracefully when interrupted.  yum wasn't finished with
its previous run when interrupted.
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2004-07-26 09:26:35 EDT
Then this is a feature request, and the yum package will
be fixed when the maintainer decides if/when to add restartability
to yum.
