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):
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
Expected Results: up2date should load, either the gui or the text version.
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.
This is fixed by doing one of three things.
Manually changing like 16 from
up2date_client 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.
