Description Lubos Kocman 2010-05-06 12:57:21 UTC
Hello I think that my problem is the same as in Bug #547032. 

It happened to me when I was trying to install RHEL6.0 Workstation (i686) snapshot2  via pxe boot.

RpmDBError: Package tuple ('rhts-lab-controller', 'noarch', '0', '3.6.11', '20100120.1') could not be found in rpmdb

(full traceback in attachment)

Steps to reproduce:

1. Boot RHEL 6.0 Workstation i686 Workstation via pxe boot.
2. do some basic setup ( I left /home on encrypted lvm)
3. add some extra repositories
   -- then I had problem that some dependencies weren't present on these servers
4. un-check newly added repositories (repositories are stored in attachment)
leave default packages (un-check customize now)
5. an exception occurred

Hope that this will help

This issue is no longer problematic. As it seems to be fixed in newer releases. I'm suggesting to close this issue.
