Description Daniel Benamy 2006-08-16 15:23:43 EDT
Description of problem:
In 4.9, hardware info switched from coming from kudzu to coming from hal. Now,
when rhn_register calls rhn.sendHardware I get:
File "../up2date_client/gui.py", line 311, in onCreateProfilePageNext
    ret = self.createProfilePageApply()
   File "../up2date_client/rhnregGui.py", line 624, in createProfilePageApply
    rhnreg.sendHardware(self.systemId, self.hardware)
line 409, in sendHardware
    rpcServer.doCall(s.registration.add_hw_profile, systemId, hardwareList)
line 233, in doCall
    ret = apply(method, args, kwargs)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xmlrpclib.py", line 1096, in __call__
    return self.__send(self.__name, args)
line 43, in _request1
    ret = self._request(methodname, params)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhn/rpclib.py", line 325, in _request
    request = self._req_body(params, methodname)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhn/rpclib.py", line 232, in _req_body
   return xmlrpclib.dumps(params, methodname, encoding=self._encoding)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xmlrpclib.py", line 1029, in dumps
    data = m.dumps(params)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xmlrpclib.py", line 603, in dumps
    dump(v, write)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xmlrpclib.py", line 615, in __dump
    f(self, value, write)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xmlrpclib.py", line 675, in dump_array
    dump(v, write)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xmlrpclib.py", line 615, in __dump
    f(self, value, write)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xmlrpclib.py", line 696, in dump_struct
    dump(v, write)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xmlrpclib.py", line 615, in __dump
    f(self, value, write)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/xmlrpclib.py", line 641, in dump_long
    raise OverflowError, "long int exceeds XML-RPC limits"

This is on fc5. I'm working in my rhn_register-overhaul branch but I'm assuming
this will happen in the old one too.

How reproducible:
Every time.

Ron and I did some testing and didn't see any very big numbers being pulled out
of hal.
Comment 2 James Bowes 2006-09-08 14:49:35 EDT
XMLRPC defines an int as 4 bytes, and provides no larger number type. In this
case, there was a long that was too long to fit into these 4 bytes.
Comment 3 James Bowes 2006-09-15 15:39:05 EDT
This isn't going to happen anymore, since the processing of this data occurs on
the client side now.
