Description of problem:
up2date produces strange stacktrace in the log file . log file can be found in standard output. Instalation cannot skip this excepption, i.e. I may need to continue with other packages that has dependecies ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run up2date rrom an xterm to see up2date standard output messages
Actual Results: [Fri Dec 2 04:49:45 2005] up2date solving dep for: ['liblink-grammar.so.4', 'libmathview.so.0', 'libmathview_frontend_libxml2.so.0', 'mathml-fonts', 'libcares.so.0', 'dietlibc-lib', 'libc.so', 'eclipse-rcp', 'lucene', 'lucene-demo', 'libid3-3.8.so.3', 'libportaudio.so', 'libfftw3.so.3', 'libhdf5.so.0', 'blas-devel', 'fftw3-devel', 'hdf5-devel', 'lapack-devel', 'libgnet-2.0.so.0', 'libgpgme.so.11', 'libgpgme.so.11(GPGME_1.0)']
[Fri Dec 2 04:52:55 2005] up2date File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/gui.py", line 1822, in doRetrieval
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py", line 192, in getPackage

return self.handlers[channel['type']].getPackageSource(channel, pkg, msgCallback, progressCallback)
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/repoBackends/genericRepo.py", line 17, in __getattr__
Expected Results: be able to skip failed dependecies or have an alternate way of handling ( maybe resorting to yum )
sometimes can workaround by watching list of dependencies and getting the package via yum.
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.
