Yum 2.1.x always creates unneeded directory "headers"
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:50:23 EST
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):
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
The "headers" directory is always created.
No "headers" directory should be created.
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.
