Description Tobias Oed 2007-02-06 00:57:49 UTC
Description of problem:
I know file names with spaces are a pain. But yum should be
able to handle them non the less. Putting 
baseurl=file:///root/path with spaces
in a .repo file makes yum unhappy. Escaping/quoting doesn't
work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-3.0.3-1.fc6

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a repo in /root/path with spaces
2. Create a .repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d
3. run yum 

Actual results:
Options Error: Error parsing 'file:///root/path with spaces': URL must be http,
ftp, file or https not ""

Expected results:
Yum is able to use the local repo

Additional info:
I need this to use the fedora dvd as a local repo. I can't 
put baseurl=file:///media/FC6 i386 DVD directly, instead I need
to create a symlink without spaces to that location and put the
location of the symlink in the baseurl and everything works as
expected.

in your yum.repo file try this:

baseurl=file:///path%20with%20spaces

see if that does what you would expect. It worked for me.


Comment 2 Tobias Oed 2007-02-06 11:32:31 UTC
Aha, That does work.
Funky way to escape but oh well.
Thanks Tobias



Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2007-02-06 13:44:51 UTC
It's the same way that spaces are escaped in web urls.
