 You should phone up about account support, and/or check your account by
directly logging into rhn.redhat.com.

 There wasn't a yum update, although there was a yum-rhn-plugin update.
 But I'm very sure that it wouldn't have done something like this in the general
case (or I'd have seen many bug reports).
Comment 2 Clint Bowman 2007-12-19 16:01:45 EST
cat yum.repos.d/rhel-debuginfo.repo
name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever - $basearch - Debug

but, as can be seen in the post above, $releasever seems to be '4' and $basearch
is 'ia32e-redhat-linux'

But that's not correct for this '5', 'x86_64' system.

Where are $releasever and $basearch defined for yum?
