Description of problem:
With up2date-2.7.61-7.x.2 on one particular client all invocations of `up2date`
yield a traceback with 'bad marshal data' during one of the imports. What does
this indicate as the likely problem and solution? Google seems to indicate
corrupted python modules; reinstall up2date client?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 24, in ?
from up2date_client import lilocfg
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/lilocfg.py", line 14, in ?
import lilo, iutil
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/lilo.py", line 13, in ?
ValueError: bad marshal data
hmm, could be. Whats `rpm -V up2date` show?
Have never seen that error before, and the iutil module hasnt
changed in months.
So corrupt files seems as likely as anything...
rpm -ivh --force fixed it. Didn't get rpm -V output before that, sorry. Will
