Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 206642
Link to debuginfo packages for RHEL 3 AMD64 goes to wrong path on ftp.redhat.com
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:49:35 EDT
Description of problem:
When I clicked on a link [Download Debug Info Package] in
"550 Failed to change directory."
The link externallylink [Download Debug Info Package] points
The file and its parent directory don't exist but
It seems that RHEL 4 AMD64/EM64T debuginfo RPM content is stored:
While, RHEL 3 AMD64/EM64T/x86_64 debuginfo RPM content is stored:
It looks like the 'dumb' logic code we use to guess and hope we are pointing in
the right location made assumption that all x86_64 packages would be found in a
x86_64 directory on ftp, while in fact, for RHEL 3, they are found in an AMD64
As such the links found for the following RHEL 3 packages were all bad:
While, these links for the following RHEL 4 packages were all good:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Browse within WebUI to the RHEL 3 AMD64 channel and packages associated with it.
2. Click onto various packages and then the debuginfo link at bottom
3. Package not found, since it is looking in .../x86_64/... and not .../AMD64/..
not really worth fixing since we are planning on supporting real, RHN hosted,
debug-info-rpms in RHN in the near future.
We originally planned on adding the real support for debug-info RPMs in our
'4.2.0' release that was scheduled to be out at the end of the year but recently
found out that our priorities have shifted and this feature got dropped. So, we
still need to determine the priority of this bug.
I'm going to include this bug in the 5.0.0 release which is scheduled for early
