Description Milan Zazrivec 2008-04-02 13:32:56 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL5.2-Server-20080402.nightly installation produces multiple installation
errors when installing gnome-applet-vm 0.1.2 1.el5. Mentioned errors are of
two kinds:

I/O error : Attempt to load network entity


5.2/Concept_Configuring_for_Use_on_a_Network.xml:26: parser error : Entity
'mdash' not defined
Comment 3 Milan Zazrivec 2008-04-02 14:30:00 EDT
Mentioned problem was not present in RHEL5.2-Server-20080401.nightly
Comment 6 Milan Zazrivec 2008-04-03 05:24:51 EDT
I think the error occurs when gnome-applet-vm calls /usr/bin/scrollkeeper-update
in its postin section.

All the files that the installation complains about
come from Virtualization-en-US package.
Comment 8 Christopher Curran 2008-04-03 22:10:49 EDT
The tag is a valid entity so it's not an error on my side. I can however hack
around it if there is no other fix available. The problem apparently should have
been fixed with the OMF regression I heard.
Comment 9 Milan Zazrivec 2008-04-04 07:10:01 EDT
Christopher, do you have any advice about what the problem here is or
what component should this bugzilla go to? Are the error messages produced
when calling scrollkeeper-update?

I certainly don't want this bugzilla to sit in the wrong place.
Comment 11 Milan Zazrivec 2008-04-07 08:43:46 EDT
OK, those error messages occur when a package calls scrollkeeper-update
for the first time. I'm not sure why those errors occur though :-(
Comment 12 Jeff Fearn 2008-04-07 17:24:32 EDT
Three things combine to lead to this error:

1. RH Docs use DocBook 4.5
2. RHEL 5 does not ship DocBook 4.5 DTD
3. Scroll Keeper disables network lookup

OMF files have been removed from the latest builds so this problem should be
solved. Virtualization 5.2-8 should be a good build of this book.

Cheers, Jeff.
Comment 16 Milan Zazrivec 2008-04-09 08:13:00 EDT
The error can be easily reproduced:
1) rhel5.2 installation with @base Virtualization-en-US scrollkeeper included
2) after the installation, run scrollkeeper-update and you'll get the same error
3) if you run scrollkeeper-update one more time, it exits without errors
Comment 19 Brock Organ 2008-04-14 17:19:45 EDT
this error, still present in the RHEL5.2-Server-20080414.nightly ...


is using the Virtualization-*-5.2-8 packages, so I think this bug is still open ...
Comment 20 Jeff Fearn 2008-04-16 19:06:53 EDT
Mike, I pushed Virtualization-5.2-9 in to brew. Please update the errata.
Comment 23 Milan Zazrivec 2008-04-22 05:23:03 EDT
Verified with Virtualization-5.2-9 / RHEL5.2-Server-20080422.nightly
