Description Ville Skyttä 2005-12-15 17:39:27 EST
When running as non-root and all package headers not in local cache,
yumdownloader fails:

$ sudo yum clean headers
Cleaning up Headers
170 headers removed
$ yumdownloader --urls --resolve nethack
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yumdownloader", line 130, in ?
  File "/usr/bin/yumdownloader", line 102, in main
  File "depsolve.py", line 211, in resolveDeps
  File "depsolve.py", line 169, in populateTs
  File "__init__.py", line 676, in downloadHeader
yum.Errors.RepoError: Header not in local cache and caching-only mode enabled.
Cannot download nethack-3.4.3-3.fc4.i386.rpm

$ rpm -q yum yum-utils

This seems to work ok in devel with yum 2.5.0 and my patched yumdownloader from
bug 175335.

FC3 and FC4 have now been EOL'd.

Please check the ticket against a current Fedora release, and either adjust the
release number, or close it if appropriate.


Your friendly BZ janitor :-)

This has been fixed in later yum/yum-utils versions.
