Description Devan Goodwin 2008-10-29 08:36:40 EDT
Description of problem:

Satellite kickstart profiles attempt to automatically update yum, pirut, and yum-rhn-plugin in a %post script using wget and rpm. Due to constantly changing dependencies this code was rapidly proving to be an unmaintainable solution and should be removed.

This is mostly a problem for Satellite installations installing RHEL 5.0 when RHEL 5.2 is available and has less relevance to Spacewalk.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a RHEL 5 or CentOS 5 kickstart profile.
2. View kickstart file.

Actual results:

Profile attempts to download the latest version of these packages with wget and rpm freshen them.

Expected results:

Stop grabbing these packages and leave the installed versions alone.
