Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 198688
up2date throws exception when installed package has dep on skip list
Last modified: 2012-06-20 12:57:44 EDT
Description of problem: While installing gcc and having glibc* on the
pkgSkipList, up2date throws an exception instead of saying what the real problem is.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
leifur:-bash# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 3)
leifur:-bash# rpm -q up2date
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install system without devel tools
2. put glibc* in PkgSkipList in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date
3. attempt to install gcc
Should cause up2date to throw an exception
up2date should output missing dep, on skip list.
This should be the right behavior to not proceed, unless the user uses --force.
Maybe throwing an exception is not a good behavior, a friendly error message
would be sufficient.
