Description Adam Pribyl 2007-06-18 10:50:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Setting baseurl to something like this:
baseurl=file:///media/Fedora 7 i386 DVD
and using yum results in error.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Default-mount installation DVD to /media/Fedora 7 i386 DVD
2. Add this path to any repo config as baseurl
3. Try yum install whatever
Actual results:

# yum install kdebase
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Options Error: Error parsing 'file:///media/Fedora 7 i386 DVD': URL must be
http, ftp, file or https not ""

Expected results:
'not ""' is misleading when yum itself says this message.
Yum should either accept at least shell escape space or convert spaces to %20.

Additional info:
Workaround is to put in the path %20 instead of spaces.

that workaround is the right thing to do. The quotes aren't handled in our
config tool at all.
