+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #589120 +++

/var/log/up2date says:
[Wed May  5 13:43:17 2010] up2date 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 283, in __run_action
    (status, message, data) = CheckCli.__do_call(method, params)
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 275, in __do_call
    method = getMethod.getMethod(method, "/usr/share/rhn/", "actions")
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/getMethod.py", line 78, in getMethod
    actions = __import__(modulename)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/actions/packages.py", line 266, in <module>
    yum_base = YumAction()
  File "/usr/share/rhn/actions/packages.py", line 62, in __init__
<type 'exceptions.AttributeError'>: 'module' object has no attribute 'cfg'

I *think* this results in:
Client execution returned "Fatal error in Python code occured [[6]]" (code -1)
in the WebUI for all events (i.e. anything that runs through rhn_check) even if the task is successful (i.e. rhn_check -vvv does). The traceback might be unrelated to this tho.


Additional Information:
<roysjosh> red_alert, jsherrill, seems like this commit is responsible for your traceback: 2fa678d4153e2a072d8c1953c3c5a16b7a1d080c
<roysjosh> it removes cfg from up2date_client/rhncli.py

Actually, it's 8d915a17b46d5e83a1b06d60b51c0e7ed36bf714 which seems to be out of line.

Additional tests show that this definitely happens in different cases:
- applying updates
- deploying config files

Also, if rhn_check is called with -vvv the following is always logged just after the traceback:
[Wed May  5 14:57:59 2010] up2date D: local action status:  ((6,), 'Fatal error in Python code occured', {})

So I guess those two things are really only one problem.

went ahead and added the cfg back into rhncli.py
