Description Chris Stankaitis 2007-03-14 15:58:01 EDT
Description of problem:

Installed a custom yum repository.  My YUM line in rhn/sources is

yum dw-noarch https://yum.URL.net/redhat/$releasever/noarch
yum dw-$basearch https://yum.URL.net/redhat/$releasever/$basearch

My RHEL 4 boxes (U3 & U4) are reporting their releasever as "3" and not "4"

In /usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/sourcesConfig.py a search for releasever turns up

     releasever = up2dateUtils.getVersion()

        releasever = "3"

It would apear you guys have elected to hard code the release version, and this
has not gotten fixed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Actual results:

Fetching Obsoletes list for channel: dw-noarch...

Fetching obsoletes list for https://yum.URL.net/redhat/3/noarch...
Fetching Obsoletes list for channel: dw-i386...

Fetching obsoletes list for https://yum.URL.net/redhat/3/i386...

Expected results:

Can I change that hard-coded releasever in the sourcesConfig.py to "4" without
fracking everything else up?... or is this fix more complicated then that.

google shows me that this was opened at one point in time under:


but it doesn't seem to be accessible anymore?
