Which limbo is this with?  I thought rhn_register was sucked into up2date now

Comment 2 Ivo Sarak 2002-08-02 07:21:14 UTC
Limbo I: (Red Hat Linux release 7.3.92 (Limbo) Kernel 2.4.18-5.58 on an i686).

up2date will give the same error:

[root@machine root]# up2date
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 15, in ?
    from up2date_client import up2date
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py", line 20, in ?
    import cgiwrap
ImportError: No module named cgiwrap
[root@machine root]#

Comment 3 Michael Young 2002-08-02 08:51:51 UTC
The up2date etc. packages could still be from 7.3 due to limbo1 failing to
upgrade many packages (bug 68255). My suggestion would be to upgrade to limbo2,
or install more recent up2date packages, eg. from
though the latter may not work if other key packages haven't been upgraded. Note
the later versions of up2date incorporate the functionality of rhn_register.

Comment 4 Ivo Sarak 2002-08-02 09:31:33 UTC
Unfortunately these files do not resolve the issue as package
pyOpenSSL-0.5pre-1.i386.rpm is still needed and it will require
libstdc++-3.2-0.1.i386.rpm which will break dependency for libstdc++.so.4 and so on.

Is it possible to make update with rpm over ftp not locally as usual?

Comment 5 Ivo Sarak 2002-08-02 09:38:17 UTC
I managed to update these files by 'rpm -e rhn-applet-1.0.6-11' but now I get:
[root@machine root]# up2date
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 45, in ?
    from up2date_client import clap
ImportError: cannot import name clap
[root@machine root]#

Comment 6 Michael Young 2002-08-02 10:22:58 UTC
My guess is python-clap didn't get updated. I think you are going to find it
easier to upgrade to limbo2 from the isos.

Comment 7 Ivo Sarak 2002-08-04 06:34:50 UTC
Yes, update of python-clap fixed the issue.

Comment 8 Adrian Likins 2002-08-08 20:52:44 UTC
looks to be closed
