Description Alexandre Oliva 2004-09-01 05:38:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
Since yum 2.1 removed yum-arch, we need something in the distro
capable of generating repositories for both yum and up2date.  Adding
createrepo is probably a must, but it would be nice to be able to
still create repositories for yum 2.0 and older versions of up2date,
so packaging yum-arch separately would be desirable.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  bash: yum-arch: command not found
bash: createrepo: command not found

Expected Results:  At least the latter should be available.

I, for one, want the ability to run yum-arch to create
backward-compatible repos on an FC3 host. If FC3 ultimately can't do
that, then it's not a showstopper IMO, but it would be *real* nice if
it could.

Comment 2 Paul Nasrat 2004-09-01 21:16:15 UTC
Working on standalone/2.1 yum-arch with UPSTREAM development.  Have
test package locally working and yum-arch and yum-arch -d -s work fine.

Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2004-09-01 21:17:29 UTC
createrepo should be built into rawhide

Comment 4 Paul Nasrat 2004-10-11 16:48:13 UTC
Closing for createrepo, awaiting upstream for old repo generation
