Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 158256
up2date errors if yum isnt installed, but doesn't need to
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:06 EST
For repomd support, up2date needs yum installed. If it
isnt, it tracebacks. It should handle this gracefully.
fixed in 4.4.22
Are you certain it was fixed in .22?
[root@excalibur rhn]# rpm -q up2date
[root@excalibur rhn]# up2date -l
An error has occurred:
See /var/log/up2date for more information
up2date was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5. Only FC5 and
FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security fixes
only. If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please change the
product to Fedora Extras and the version to match. If you can verify that the
bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version appropriately.
The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists
in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the
version appropriately and update the bug report.
We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now. The status will be changed
to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security
bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed.
Closing per previous message.
