Description Florian La Roche 2006-10-01 17:06:17 EDT
Description of problem:

Recently a patch was added to yum to have it working even if
/dev/log exists, but is not working (kickstart installs and %post script).

Now yum does work in such a kickstart %post script, but tracebacks with
the following lines after doing a package install:

Error in atexit._run_exitfuncs:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/atexit.py", line 24, in _run_exitfuncs
    func(*targs, **kargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/logging/__init__.py", line 1333, in shutdown
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/logging/handlers.py", line 642, in close
    if self.unixsocket:
AttributeError: SysLogHandler instance has no attribute 'unixsocket'

Bump - any update on this problem. Was/is it a python issue?

It was a python bug and the fix is included in python 2.5 for F7
