Description phostetl 2001-12-18 12:01:04 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-4GB i686)

Description of problem:
up2date should have grabbed and installed the glibc-2.2.4-18.7.0.3 patch. 
Instead I got a repeatable error about incorrect architechture.  The system
has:

# rpm -qa | grep up2
up2date-2.7.11-7.x.1
# rpm -qa | grep rhn
rhn_register-2.7.2-7.x.8
# uname -a
Linux herculock.com 2.2.19-7.0.12 #1 Fri Oct 26 15:17:33 EDT 2001 i586
unknown  
# dmesg | grep -i cpu
CPU: Intel Pentium MMX stepping 03

The system is a Dell Dimension M200a

I was able to download apply the glibc updates from the command line.

Additional info:
Comment 1 phostetl 2001-12-18 14:00:00 EST
I think the problem is the missing glibc rpm for the i586 architecture.  I
solved the problem by manually doing the update with the i386 glibc.

# rpm -q glibc glibc-common --qf '%{arch} %{name} %{version}\n'
i386 glibc 2.2.4
i386 glibc-common 2.2.4
Comment 2 phostetl 2001-12-18 14:41:20 EST
I have also verified that this same bug exists on Red Hat 7.1 on an i586.

Also, my problem solution is only a quick workaround, not a fix.
Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2002-01-07 18:39:13 EST
Part of this was a server side issue. Are you still seeing this behaviour?
Comment 4 phostetl 2002-01-07 21:34:46 EST
I don't have any unpatched systems to test it on.  If it a server side issue
which has been corrected, then please mark it as fixed.
Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2002-01-16 16:46:46 EST
Havent seen any reports of this since the server side change, so
closing it out.

There is a client change as well that makes the client less
picky about what the server sends, so that should be in the next
version as well.
Comment 6 Kjartan Maraas 2003-03-31 15:45:50 EST
Should this be marked as resolved?
