Description Ben Woodard 2013-06-06 17:41:08 EDT
Description of problem:
Evidently yum config manager confuses ID and name. 

<james> And can yum see it in "yum repolist" ?
<neb> in the list it appears to be:
<neb> rhel-6-server-optional-rpms
<neb> vs
<neb> rhel-server-optional-6-rpms
<james> Are the id and names different?
<james> yum-config-manager just takes ids
<james> repolist does both, IIRC.
<neb> doh that is subtle
<james> ugh … even worse yum-config-manager seems to take names only … doh!
<james> that can't be right.
<james> oh … the code is using name for id … nice.
<james> yeh, repolist has it's own find routine … I can fix that for RHEL-7, probably.
<neb> great. no wonder it had me so confused.
<james> neb: If you could file a RHEL-7 bug/RFE that'd be great.
<neb> this is still rhel6 though
<james> Yeh, you can file a bug there too … I just wouldn't hold your breath.
<neb> still want one for rhel7 but not rhel6
<james> Maybe for 6.6 or whatever.
<neb> OK

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 19:30:08 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 3 James Antill 2014-03-25 12:07:49 EDT
 This is upstream, but requires yum and yum-utils patches:
