Comment 1 Jan Pazdziora 2008-04-29 15:42:27 EDT
Well, I wonder what the best way of handling the situation is, provided we do
not plan to release 4.2.3 ISO.

I suspect that the idea was that by now, customers are not really expected to
install new 4.2 Satellites, just upgrade the old ones (<= 4.2.2) to the latest
upgrade version (4.2.3).

So the customer should not hit this problem at all. For QA, you'll either do the
installation on RHEL 4.5, or install rpm-build and rpm-python from RHEL 4.6
prior to starting the Satellite 4.2.2 installation.

Do you agree with this and can we close this bugzilla as WONTFIX, or are some
other changes required?
Comment 2 Miroslav Suchý 2008-04-30 03:44:24 EDT
This is known bug, which is repeat every minor and maintance version of
satellite. It was properly fixed in 5.1, where we kicked our rpmbuild from
This will happen if you want to install *now* every old release. And since we
will not release ISO for this release and nobody should install 4.2.3 from ISO,
I'm saying we will not fix it.

If  you really want to do it, the workaround is to copy ISO to HDD and remove
rpmbuild from bootstrap and install it by up2date.

Agreed.  This is not something we'll fix for 4.2.3.
