Description Vasile Gaburici 2004-12-01 04:53:45 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
up2date --get-source works fine for the srpms found in the original
tree, but fails for any updates. It fails silently, getting a 0 length
file.

The reason seems to be the lack of a headers directory in the SRPMS
directory coupled with inappropriate or misinterpreted (by up2date)
info the i386/headers directory. Anyway, one would expect up2date to
return some error if it cannot find the src.rpm, not just create a
0-length file...


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.3.47-5

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
[root@buzz ~]# up2date --get-source kernel

this bug is a duplicate of #141901, #141289 (has a HACK to pach), #139351.  

This bug is a real nuisance and seems to be very pervasive now.  Mine manifested
after the FC2->FC3 upgrade, so there is some difference here.
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 16:42:57 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
Comment 3 John Thacker 2006-10-29 10:08:40 EST
Closing per lack of response to previous comment.  If this still occurs on FC3
or FC4 and is a security issue, please assign to Fedora Legacy and the
appropriate version.  The bug could also be filed against RHEL if it is relevant
there.

up2date has been replaced by pirut and pup in FC5 and FC6, the still fully
supported versions of Fedora Core, so this bug will not be fixed unless it is a
security issue.
