Description Klaas Demter 2015-08-10 07:56:03 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to remove a package using spacecmd and its not working

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
root@spacewalk [0] rhn # rpm -qa|grep spacecmd

How reproducible:
# spacecmd softwarechannel_removepackages channel gcc-c++-4.4.7-4.el6.x86_64
INFO: Connected to https://localhost/rpc/api as admin
ERROR: multiple repeat

to make sure its no bash issue I also tried from within spacecmd
# spacecmd -u admin
Welcome to spacecmd, a command-line interface to Spacewalk.

Type: 'help' for a list of commands
      'help <cmd>' for command-specific help
      'quit' to quit

INFO: Connected to https://localhost/rpc/api as admin
spacecmd {SSM:0}> 
spacecmd {SSM:0}> softwarechannel_removepackages channel gcc-c++-4.4.7-4.el6.x86_64
ERROR: multiple repeat

I also tried various ways I could think of to escape the package name but without success

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run spacecmd softwarechannel_removepackages channel gcc-c++-4.4.7-4.el6.x86_64

Actual results:
ERROR: multiple repeat

Expected results:
delete Package

There is probably some double escaping in code.

# spacecmd softwarechannel_removepackages channel gcc-c\\+\\+-4.4.7-4.el6.x86_64

This should work.

repaired in commit f1d48f0702c010eca967d727eda3887d11270745 in spacewalk/master
Comment 3 Ondrej Gajdusek 2016-11-10 05:11:03 EST
This MULTILPE REPEAT error has been raised in due to that the function expects regexes as input. Actually here is no way to fix it by logical way. User must escape the regexp himself as in many tools which are using regexps.

Reverted in spacewalk.git 71aff902e6464d94dc7775c634a2139c156c945b.
