Description of problem:
No matter how many times I create, populate, delete a new base
channel, I only get 25 packages identified as uploaded.  The first time
there were close to 900, which is still many many hundred short.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upload packages
2. click 'clear cache' link on website when viewing channel contents

Actual Results:  25 packages appeared.

Expected Results:  ~1700 packages should have appeared.

Joe, can you reproduce this problem?  It looks like it might be a pagination
problem, but to test you'll need to load a whole bunch of custom packages.  When
you can reproduce, hand off to Robin for troubleshooting.

Comment 2 Greg DeKoenigsberg 2002-10-25 16:45:38 UTC
Joe cannot replicate the problem.  Isaiah, do you get error messages when you
sue the rhn_package_manager?  Any diagnostic info that you can share?

Comment 3 Isaiah Weiner 2002-10-25 16:51:37 UTC
I get no error messages.  rhn_package_manager does mention the package has
already been submitted, after it uploads it.  On the website, I click the
refresh content option on the page, and the 'click this when you're done
modifying the contents of the channel' link.  I get 25 packages.  The base
channel name is cisco-linux-i386-7.1 if you're interested.

Comment 4 Josef Komenda 2002-10-25 16:56:08 UTC
What command string are you using to upload the packages? I used 

rhn_package_manager -v --nosig -d /root/5.2 -c joe-base --username=jkomenda

Comment 5 Greg DeKoenigsberg 2002-10-25 16:58:21 UTC
Also, rpm -qa | grep rhn would probably be helpful.

Comment 6 Isaiah Weiner 2002-10-25 17:05:58 UTC
Everything is up to date:

$ rpm -qa | grep rhn

The only applicable update to the 7.2 system is mod_python, which the
documentation made quiet clear should not be applied.

Here is my command:

sudo rhn_package_manager -v -c "cisco-linux-i386-7.1"
--username="cisco_ecs_iweiner" *

The contents of the directory are all 7.1+powertools packages.

Comment 7 Greg DeKoenigsberg 2002-10-25 17:18:57 UTC
Pulled directly from the 7.1 + powertools channels, right?  Then these packages
are already in the database with the same NVRE and MD5sum, correct?  I would
presume that the import of those packages would fail, and we should see some
errors *somewhere*.  Todd, can you take a look at this?

Comment 8 Isaiah Weiner 2002-10-25 17:36:02 UTC
I didn't pull them from the channel, they're from an FTP site mirror.  But the
packages are still the same.

When run without -v, _no_ output is yielded.

Comment 9 Isaiah Weiner 2002-10-29 23:59:57 UTC
New proxy updates (today) fixed this.
