Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 837018
yum copies RPMs from media repo to /var/cache
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:22:51 EST
Description of problem:
I'm using my Fedora 17 x86_64 install DVD as a yum repository and when I'm installing a package from that repository, it gets copied to /var/cache/yum/*/*/media/packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add media repository:
cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/media.repo < "EOF"
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch media
2. Install something from the media repository, e.g. yum install bc
The bc RPM will be copied to /var/cache/yum/.../media/packages
The bc should not be copied.
yum -C install bc fails with:
Error Downloading Packages:
bc-1.06.95-6.fc17.x86_64: Caching enabled but no local cache of /var/cache/yum/x86_64/17/media/packages/bc-1.06.95-6.fc17.x86_64.rpm from media
ACK, This is a bug in the new downloader.. Setting 'async=0' for the repo work this around until I find out a better solution.
The suggested workaround fixed the issue. Thank you!
