Description of problem:
Using up2date to get 2.4.7-6 kernel results in a package conflict,
using beta.rhns.redhat.com to download a tarball gives a 404.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
A1. remove kernel* from pkgSkipList
A2. up2date --nox --download --update --test
B1. select all 6 kernel packages on beta.rhns.redhat.com
B2. click download selected packages
B3. select i686 arch
B4. click download selected packages
Actual Results: A. RPM conflict error. The message was:
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
file /boot/System.map-2.4.7-6 conflicts between attempted installs of
kernel-2.4.7-6 and kernel-2.4.7-6
B. 404 Error - File not found
Expected Results: A. rpms downloaded
B. tarball downloaded
B. same error occurs even with only one file that does not have multiple
arches, such as kernel-source
=ALL= other packages are current, via up2date.
[root@chopin rhn]# rpm -q up2date
This has been fixed in the most recent versions of the client.
Basically, the package arch handling was broken, and has since been
Fixed in the latest code. Closing out.
