Description of problem:
While trying to use the RedHat up2date program, it tells me that I need to update to "mdadm-1.5.0-9.src.rpm". However, when I select it and click the next button, it then always gives me an error "There was a fatal error communicating with the server. The message was File Not Found: mdadm-1.5.0-9.src.rpm". "Error Message: Invalid RPM package mdadm-1.5.0-9.src.rpm requested". "Error Class Code: 17". "Error Class Info: File not found." It then tells me to contact RedHat's bugzilla.redhat.com to enter a bug report. So, this is what I am doing. What is the problem and how do I fix it? I am currently running RedHat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 5).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on up2date.
2. Click on the Forward button.
3. Click on the Forward button.
4. Click on the mdadm update listed then click on the Forward button.
5. Error box pops up within a few seconds.
Actual Results: Error box pops up within a few seconds.
Expected Results: It should download the update and then install the update.
I have a screen shot to attach to help out with the actual error box and message, but I do not know how to attach it to this bug report.
Changing to proper component and product.
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.
