RFE: Waiting for 3.2.22++ in F-10
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:09:16 EST
Description of problem:
$ yum provides "*/librpmbuild.so"
Loaded plugins: allowdowngrade, downloadonly, fastestmirror, kmdl
Error: Caching enabled but no local cache of //var/cache/yum/updates-debuginfo/filelists.sqlite.bz2 from updates-debuginfo
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
whenever needed cache file doesn't exists
I understand what's going on, but the average user won't.
a) This is not an error, on either the user's part or yum's--both are doing the right thing
b) This message gives no idea as to the proper course of action to continue
A better message might be something like:
"Sorry; I could normally handle this query for you, but to do that I need a cached file that can only be generated as root. Please try rerunning the command as root."
This is fixed in 3.2.22, as we use a user dir. instead of the root dir. in caching mode.
I'll make a 3.2.22 build in updates-testing today.
yum 3.2.23 has been released to Fedora 10 by Seth, closing bug.
