Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246816
Revisor deletes downloaded files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:09 EST
Description of problem:
A suggestion really
Attempted to create CD set of f7 using online repository with all the updates
Left it running overnight downloading all the required files. For some reason it
appeared to be hung on a download but was able to quit
There were 800mb of 1100mb files in the tmp directory.
When I started a new attempt I assumed (wrongly) the downloaded files would be
retained but revisor removed all the tmp directories and started from scratch
Perhaps there should be a "resume" or a "retain downloaded files" capability
Having to download all the files again is frustrating, time consuming & will
cause higher server loadings
Since I was working from an updated existing F7 system which would have the
files in yum cache perhaps add capability to get files from there ??
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Added as a blocker ticket for NEXTRELEASE.
We should however delete the metadata to prevent not downloading the metadata
when a repo has been updated (use case when revisor returns an error yum cannot
find a package, someone resyncs the repo or creates new metadata and runs
Thank you for allocating a task for next release
