Stop Attempting Manual Yum, Pirut, and Yum-rhn-plugin Upgrades in Kickstart Post
Last modified: 2009-02-24 14:28:55 EST
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.
Profile attempts to download the latest version of these packages with wget and rpm freshen them.
Stop grabbing these packages and leave the installed versions alone.
