Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456540
Non-root yum message clarification
Last modified: 2010-10-22 23:05:02 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
The discussion of Bugzilla 448955 got to the point where I was told to open a bug against yum-rhn-plugin. But it seems this bug is already now open. I can't see any information about what wording change is being considered. From where I sit the situation is:
An attempt was made to remedy this issue with an update made for RHEL 5.2, but the new wording was never sanity checked. There persists an error message string:
"RHN support will be disabled."
which could be easily mis-interpreted as an indication that the person running yum somehow broke RHN support.
My recommendation is that the string simply be deleted. The new diagnostics added in RHEL 5.2 should be sufficient without this string.
Such a change seems like a few minutes work. If we agree this is the right way forward we can get this silly issue out of our lives forever, and bugzilla 448955 can be closed because this is the remaining open issue from that bug.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information

if the solution does not work for you.
