yum doesn't try other mirrors after hitting ctrnl-c
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:02:33 EST
Description of problem:
yum does not try the next mirror when cntrl-c is pressed during the download of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install somepackage
2. while downloading hit cntrl-c
yum says trying another mirror but quits.
yum should try the next mirror and continue download.
example of my fedora.repo:
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch
I can confirm this bug for yum-3.2.8-2.fc8 and also in yum from rawhide.
This fixes it upstream, so I _assume_ rpm has done something recent-ishly.
Florian, can you take a look?

It's probably worth noting that I tried self.closeRpmDB() instead, and that
didn't do anything.
Ok, so I tried downgrading rpm to:
rpm.x86_64 184.108.40.206-3.fc8 installed
rpm-build.x86_64 220.127.116.11-3.fc8 installed

rpm-python.x86_64 184.108.40.206-3.fc8 installed
...which should be the Fed-8 GA version of rpm/rpm-libs/etc. but it still has
the same problem, so I'm guessing we changed something so that rpm sees the
This might also explain bug#240138
FYI, bug#240138 is that basically the same thing happens in RHEL-5.2 using 3.2.8-*
Ok, so adding some trace code to rpm/rpmio/rpmsq.c:rpmsqEnable() I see:
y Loaded plugins
r rpm takes SIGINT = ref 1
r rpm releases SIGINT = ref 0
y <Excluding Packages> etc.
y Setting up Upgrade Process
r rpm takes SIGINT = ref 1
y Resolving Dependencies
y --> Finished Dependency Resolution
r rpm takes SIGINT = ref 2
y --> Running transaction check
y Transaction Summary
r rpm releases SIGINT = ref 1
y Total size:

So ignoring the first ref/unref.
The first ref is from self.rpmdb.ts
The second ref is from self.ts and then ts.dbMatch() in
