Description Jason 2010-05-25 18:25:16 UTC
Description of problem:

When /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/rhnplugin.conf is set to:

enabled = 1
gpgcheck = 1

yum fails with the following:

If rhnplugin.conf is disabled, yum works properly:

enabled = 0
gpgcheck = 1

How reproducible:
This is the case with RHEL 5.5 desktop and RHEL 5.5 server.

Comment 1 Miroslav Suchý 2010-05-26 08:46:19 UTC
Do you have properly set up sslCACert and serverURL in:
I assume you have set one of those incorectly. But yes, we can write some nice error message rather then this ugly traceback

Comment 2 Miroslav Suchý 2010-05-26 09:41:31 UTC
spacewalk.git as commit 94a5ae16d12e126fc26d6646c06400c9de6a9ec6

This fix does not write this ugly traceback, but will print nice error message.

Comment 3 Jason 2010-05-26 17:24:52 UTC
Yes, both are setup the same as my working RHEL 5.4 system in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date:



However, I compare the /usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT that came with RHEL 5.4 and it was larger than the cert that came with my RHEL 5.5 server.  I copied the /usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT from my RHEL 5.4 server to my 5.5 system and now the plugin is working properly.   It appears that some data is missing from the cert shipped with RHEL 5.5.

another commit 497663177760d7822ee8019367b92f998a77be96 cherrypicked as rev. 208204.

Comment 15 Miroslav Suchý 2011-11-01 16:12:51 UTC
regarding #12. This is completely different traceback and different part of code. and will be different fix.
This do not go through rhncli.py, so we could not gracefuly exit with error message. We have to raise error which inherit from yum.Errors, so yum or pup can catch it and display to user (either in tui on in gui).
Either way #12 is not going to be fixed in this BZ.

Comment 17 Miroslav Suchý 2011-11-02 15:16:12 UTC
spacewalk.git commit fb2a637c67605a11e3cccdfad2315895d5ad6878

Backported to el5 as rev. 208228.

Comment 19 Jiří Mikulka 2011-11-03 08:27:35 UTC

while I was verifying this bug (with the latest rhn-client-tools package) I hit this traceback in /var/log/up2date:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_register", line 82, in ?
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/rhncli.py", line 85, in run
    except (SSL.SysCallError, socket.error), e:
exceptions.NameError: global name 'socket' is not defined

This is caused due to missing 'import socket' in '/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/rhncli.py' (see spacewalk.git commits 94a5ae16d12e126fc26d6646c06400c9de6a9ec6, 497663177760d7822ee8019367b92f998a77be96).

Easiest fix of this issue is to add 'import socket' in /usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/rhncli.py.

Please check it. Thanks.

Grr, you are right
spacewalk.git 0a70c4bd80203789916df07d24b57f52a1f75b41
svn revision 208234.

Comment 21 Jiří Mikulka 2011-11-04 08:32:09 UTC
I verified this bug using the latest rhn-client-tools package (rhn-client-tools-0.4.20-71.el5) on RHEL Server 5.7 x86_64 (this bug was present also on previous releases of RHEL).

Traceback is not shown anymore, but is properly handled by yum (see spacewalk.git fb2a637c67605a11e3cccdfad2315895d5ad6878). Yum should print some message or warning, but there is other mistake in yum (new bz will be created and added here), which causes, that neither message is printed and log is created for the traceback.

Switching to VERIFIED (related yum bz will be added here).

yum bug filled as bug 751294
