Description josh.yggdrasil 2011-07-07 15:22:30 UTC
Description of problem:
yumdownloader does not download Source RPMs when (SRPM) provided '--source' flag

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# yumdownloader --version
yumdownloader - 1.0 (yum - 3.2.29)

How reproducible:
Reproduced on one system, confirmed by at least one other person.

Steps to Reproduce:
(Using GCC as an example)
1.  install yumdownloader, if not already installed
2.  type 'yumdownloader --source gcc'
Actual results: It says there is no Source RPM, and nothing to download
# yumdownloader --source gcc (Example From RedHat '6Server')
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
No source RPM found for gcc-4.4.4-13.el6.x86_64
No source RPM found for gcc-4.4.5-6.el6.x86_64
Nothing to download

Expected results: This it downloads a Source RPM (example from working CentOS5
# yumdownloader --source gcc
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirror.5ninesolutions.com
 * extras: mirrors.usc.edu
 * updates: mirror.5ninesolutions.com
gcc-4.1.2-50.el5.src.rpm                                 |  37 MB     00:03

Additional info:
*Also tried with enabled/disabled repositories; example: (though I've been told this shouldn't make a difference)

name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever - $basearch - Source

*Works without --source flag
# yumdownloader gcc
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin

*Fails with packages aside from GCC
# yumdownloader --source gedit
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
No source RPM found for 1:gedit-2.28.4-3.el6.x86_64
Nothing to download

*Confirmed existance of src.rpm files via ftp to ftp.redhat.com

** For people who get here through search **

Comment 6 of bug 710469 has a workaround:


I edited the /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel-source.repo file and changed:




'yumdownloader --source' now works with this temporary fix.
