Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 154248
Satellite should handle .nosrc.rpm packages
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:39:15 EDT
Description of problem:
rhnpush fails for .nosrc.rpm packages. .nosrc.rpm is an accepted package file
extension, and should be valid for use with the satellite.
For more information, see IT#68302.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
did you try to use --source? Source rpms are "special".
Oh, sorry, misread the bug report - .nosrc.rpm are not exactly supported by os
John, can you please try to reproduce the error? We can try to patch it to work
with those packages, but AFAIR it's really difficult to know it's a nosrc.rpm -
nothing in the rpm header tells you that.
I tried uploading a nosrc rpm without --source and got this traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "rhnpush.py", line 413, in ?
sys.exit(main() or 0)
File "rhnpush.py", line 133, in main
File "rhnpush.py", line 276, in packages
ret = self.package(p)
File "rhnpush.py", line 301, in package
h = uploadLib2.get_header(package, source=self.options.source)
File "uploadLib2.py", line 598, in get_header
raise UploadError("Unexpected RPM package type")
uploadLib2.UploadError: Unexpected RPM package type
When I tried uploading the package using --source it supposedly uploads the
package to the channel (gets a 200 result code), but I can't find it anywhere
through the web interface. It looks like rhnpush treats nosrc packages the same
way it treats src packages.
o Find a nosrc rpm and a binary version of the nosrc rpm.
o Using rhnpush, push the binary version of the nosrc rpm into a channel.
rhnpush --server=servername/APP --channel=channel_name file.rpm
o Using rhnpush, push the nosrc rpm using the --source option. Doesn't have to
be into a channel.
rhnpush --server=servername/APP --source ~/file.nosrc.rpm
o Through the web interface, go to Channels->Manage Software Channels->Manage
Software Packages and click on the name of the binary rpm that you pushed earlier.
o The Source RPM field should list the nosrc version of the rpm that you pushed
o The Download section at the bottom of the screen should list the nosrc rpm as
being available for download.
o Download the nosrc rpm and ensure that the filename is correct.
Excellent ! Works with rhnpush-4.0.0-156.rhel4 from
