Description Robert Scheck 2004-10-09 20:46:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Yum 2.1.x always creates the unneeded directory "headers" in 
/var/cache/yum/*repo*/. I think, the "headers" directory was needed 
in < 2.1.x where *.hdr was used...

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, see below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /var/cache/yum/base
2. rm -rf headers
3. file headers
   -> headers: cannot open (headers)
4. yum list
   -> [lots of stuff]
5. file headers
   -> headers: directory
Actual results:
The "headers" directory is always created.

Expected results:
No "headers" directory should be created.
Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2004-10-09 21:36:04 EDT
The headers dir is needed b/c it downloads the rpm header of packages
it is depsolving for. So the headers dir does need to be created.

I have a plan to get rid of that but it will take some more work.

But for right now it's not a bug.
