yum tries to remove rpms from file:// repo directory
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:59:01 EST
Description of problem:
When some repos/mirrorlist dirs are file:/// urls, yum now tries to remove the
original rpm files from the repo (as if they were its cache files, perhaps).
Fortunately my nfs-mounted repo is exported read-only, so it can't do any harm.
But it's so, so wrong.
This is a new problem that appeared in rawhide not too long ago, f7 et al are fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.have your mirrorlist url return a file:/// url for a repo
2.yum upgrade something
confirmed it happens - not sure why it just started happening, though. Nothing
in it seems to be new.
nevermind - I figured out what changed and caused it and fixed it. Will be out
