Description David Abdurachmanov 2018-07-01 12:09:42 UTC
Description of problem:

Fedora/RISC-V (riscv64) kernel does not have /proc/self/loginuid thus misc.getloginuid() returns None and then the conversion to int fails. This happens while running appliance-creator to create nightly disk images.


RPMDB altered outside of DNF.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/appliance-creator", line 173, in <module>

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

We moved to DNF 3.0.2 and this started to happen. This particular code was added ~5 months ago and landed in DNF 3.

How reproducible:

Boot in Fedora/RISC-V QEMU, e.g.: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/risc-v/disk-images/

[root@hifive ~]# cat /proc/self/loginuid
cat: /proc/self/loginuid: No such file or directory

[root@hifive ~]# python
Python 2.7.15 (default, May  7 2018, 14:37:14) 
[GCC 8.1.1 20180502 (Red Hat 8.1.1-1)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from dnf.yum import misc
>>> a = misc.getloginuid()
>>> type(a)
<type 'NoneType'>
>>> print(a)

Dear DNF developers,

I am the maintainer of DNF package on the ArchLinux User Repository (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dnf/).

Since ArchLinux kernel is compiled without audit support, DNF 3 does not work on Arch because of this issue.

This prevents me to push DNF 3 to the AUR until this bug gets fixed. 

Best regards,

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 29 development cycle.
Changing version to '29'.
