Comment 1 Michael Stenner 2005-12-06 16:40:46 UTC
This is a bug, and probably one in urlgrabber rather than yum.  However, I don't
have enough information here to diagnose it.  I'd really like to know the following:

  a) which failover method in yum were you using
  b) how did the download go as far as passing through mirrors?  Did this happen
     after the last mirror?  Had other mirrors failed in previous downloads?

It would be very helpful if you could recreate this with urlgrabber debugging
on.  Assuming you have urlgrabber 2.9.6 or older, you can just edit mirror.py
and set DEBUG to 1.  If you have 2.9.7 (which I doubt, but you can always get it
from here
then you can just set the environment variable URLGRABBER_DEBUG=1,/tmp/ug.txt
before you run yum.  Note, you don't have to globally install the new
urlgrabber.  You can just set PYTHON_PATH=/where/urlgrabber/is before running yum.

Comment 2 Bill Crawford 2005-12-06 18:06:36 UTC
I have installed 2.9.7 in /usr/local and added /etc/profile.d/debug.sh to set
PYTHONPATH and URLGRABBER_DEBUG. Will wait and see if this happens again ...

Should be happier now
