Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72695
Installer needs to update up2date before running up2date
Last modified: 2007-07-31 15:09:51 EDT
Description of Problem: when running the installer, it will optionally run
up2date. Currently, up2date incorrectly identifies the processor that sat-inst
is using - running 'up2date up2date' before launching the full gui installer
would fix this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): bug 63780
incorrectly identifies the processor?
Yup - the stock 7.2 up2date seemed to think that sat-inst.webdev-colo was an
athlon. upgrading up2date made it see the light - it's i686. Todd had to do this
with the new proxy installer as well.
Ah - this is Misa's bug:
Update of /mnt/devel/CVS/rhn/backend/server
In directory devserv.devel.redhat.com:/tmp/cvs-serv7970
The pristine 7.2 up2date had a bug where it was not selecting the right
arch if an incompatible one was presented before a compatible one. Reordering
them on the server side fixes this. My bad, shouldn't have put the desc there.
The old query had: order by generation
In the new query, rank is ascending the way it's supposed to be (i386 has only
noarch and i386 to be compatible with, while i686 has all of them)
