Description Justin Nemmers 2005-04-21 10:32:07 EDT

Description of problem:
Some package removals scheduled by RHN (hosted or satellite) will fail when the system checks in.  

The client OS is RHEL 4 x86, latest up2date.  This is an easily reproducible issue.
There are some packages that will not cause the error upon execution of scheduled removal, but it is 
consistently repeatable with the package zsh.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Schedule package removal of zsh from a client system using RHN (hosted or satellite)
2. rhn_check -v from client machine

Actual Results:  [root@salsa ~]# rhn_check
packages.remove ([['zsh', '4.2.0', '3', '']],)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 174, in run_action
    (status, message, data) = do_call(method, params)
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 91, in do_call
    retval = apply(method, params)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/actions/packages.py", line 83, in remove
    up2date.removePackages(pkgList, rpmCallback)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py", line 1009, in removePackages
TypeError: runTransaction() takes at least 4 arguments (2 given)
packages.remove ([['zsh', '4.2.0', '3', '']],)

Expected Results:  rhn_check would have completed the removal of the zsh rpm.

Additional info:

This error was reproducable on several different RHEL 4 clients, as well as with events scheduled from 
RHN hosted as well as a 3.7 satellite.
