Description of problem:
kickstart installation fails on perl-libwww-perl-5.805-1.1.1.noarch.rpm.
Have successfully created the kickstart profile and distro tree in spacewalk, and used cobbler buildiso to create a boot iso. Successfully booted from the iso and kickstart works (completes the format partitions section) and gets to the install section after checking package dependencies, but fail on the above mentioned perl packed. (need to press "crt-f3" to see the error).
The full path of the file is http://servername/ks/dist/fd-centos-5/CentOS/perl-libwww-perl-5.805-1.1.1.noarch.rpm
when trying directly hitting that link via a web browser I get a spacewalk "File Download Failed" error page.
The package perl-libwww-perl-5.805-1.1.1.noarch.rpm exsists and can be found both via the spacewalk package search section and via the commandline, (I have even cksum the file and it looks correct to the cd version).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
not sure, this looks to be a type of tomcat caching issue, but I cannot find the referenced file anywhere.
Steps to Reproduce:
this dynamically generated link http://servername/ks/dist/fd-centos-5/CentOS/perl-libwww-perl-5.805-1.1.1.noarch.rpm does not link to the file
should be able to download the file from this link
The package that required the perl-libwww-perl-5.805-1.1.1.noarch.rpm comes from the postfix package I have added to the software section and looks to be only and issue with this package.
I have created a test kickstart profile without the postfix package and the linux build works fine using the same boot iso.
I think I have resolved the issue and would like to confirm if it is a known bug in spacewalk.
The perl-libwww-perl-5.805-1.1.1.noarch.rpm was in two spacewalk channels and I assume spacwalk would be able to pick any of the files as they were the same but this is not the case. After deleted one of the packages in one of the channels the kickstart build completed successfully and didn't dont warn or error for the perl package.
I am not sure if this is a satellite known fact or a bug.
Mass-moving to space13.
We did not have time for this one during Spacewalk 1.4 time frame. Mass moving to Spacewalk 1.5.
Aligning under space16.
