Description matthew 2002-03-29 12:02:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/2.99 (3.0 rc3); Linux)

Description of problem:
up2date crashes immediatly after execution. the error it gives is ImportError: cannot import name clap.  The python-clap package is installed, and both clap.py and clap.pyc are sitting in /usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open terminal
2. type up2date
3. watch it crash

Actual Results:  crashes with the following:
[root@localhost site-packages]# up2date
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 16, in ?
    from up2date_client import clap
ImportError: cannot import name clap
[root@localhost site-packages]#

Expected Results:  up2date should load, either the gui or the text version.

Additional info:

didn't install any of the development packages from install, and it's running in vmware, but everything else works including rhn_register.

I've listed it as a security issue since one cannot patch their system without up2date.

I don't know if you can look at it, but all the package information is listed 
in the system profile through rhn.  The account name is ctlno.com and the 
machine name is vm73beta.

Duplicate of bug #61749.
Comment 3 Nathan G. Grennan 2002-04-01 01:32:10 EST
This is fixed by doing one of three things.

Manually changing like 16 from

up2date_client import clap


import clap

Then run up2date to get the new version that fixes this problem.



cp -a /usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/clap.py* /usr/share/rhn/up2date_client

Then run up2date to get the new version.


Just manually download the newer up2date rpms from a rawhide directory on a
redhat mirror, then install them.
