Description Jay Berkenbilt 2002-09-01 20:15:32 EDT
Description of Problem:

When I ran up2date and told it to grab the new kernel, I got a dialog indicating
that the package was not signed and asking whether I should continue.  I clicked
"OK" and up2date crashed issuing an error message about an rpm error.

Sadly, I do not have the exact details anymore, and can no longer reproduce the
problem, so the above is the best I can do as far as specific details or error
messages.  But see below for some additional information.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

up2date 2.9.55-2

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. install (null) from scratch
2. manually update to the following by downloading and installing:


3. run up2date

Actual Results:

observe behavior described in "Problem Description"; i.e., up2date crashes after
OK is selected on warning dialog about unsigned package

Expected Results:

It should have continued downloading

Additional Information:
I worked around this by turning off use of GPG.  Now my system is up to date, so
I can no longer reproduce the problem.

I think this was a combo of a weird rpm bug, a glibc bug, and
up2date not handling the exception it got.

It seems to work fine with current code bases of rpm/up2date
(slightly newer versions of up2date/rpm than you list)
2.9.64 for up2date and I belive rpm-4.1-1.04

I'm setting this to modified since it seems to work
for me in the current code base, and sounds like a
bug thats known fixed.

This does seem to be fixed.... any reason why it's still open?

Closing out based on feedback from the original poster.
