Description Jiri Moskovcak 2010-07-22 11:17:33 UTC
Description of problem:
There is a repository called beaker-debug in the rhel6 and debuginfo-install fails to enable this repository because it looks only for "-debuginfo"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure you have a repo called *-debug-*
2. try debuginfo-install  <some package>
Actual results:
the debuginfo-install script doesn't enable the -debug- repository and thus fail to install debuginfo packages

Expected results:
Debuginfo packages installed.

Additional info:
The problem is that there is probably no guidelines/rules for naming the repository containing the debuginfos, but since the name "beaker-os-debug" is used for our own (RH) repository, we should probably support it in yum-utils or change the name of the repository.

forgot to add version:

This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

changing the name of the repo will break fewer expectations elsewhere.

Comment 5 James Antill 2010-07-22 14:33:21 UTC
 I have thought about using repodata tags to work all this stuff out at some future point, but tags are going at a snails pace for Fedora.
 Atm. the defacto std. is to have source repos. names <main-repoid>-source and debuginfo repos. names <main-repoid>-debuginfo. Chance of us adding another hack for -debug everywhere are pretty small.
