Description Pavel 2002-12-31 16:11:06 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20021230

Description of problem:
When using redhat-config-packages to install new package(s), I get following
error dialog during installation:
"There was an
error installing packages. Exiting"
I also see on the message on the terminal saying:
file /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/<some package name> cannot be opened. This is
due to a missing file, a bad package or bad media. Press <return> to try
again". The package is in place and 'rpm -K /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/<some package
name>' gives no errors.

Also when running redhat-install-packages <some package> following traceback is
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/", line 238,
in ?
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/", line 201,
in run
    self.do_package_check ()
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/", line 79,
in do_package_check
    if isSource:
NameError: global name 'isSource' is not defined 

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

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-02 03:46:59 UTC
Fixed in 1.1.2, going up to as soon as it
finishes building

Comment 2 John Thacker 2006-04-22 04:25:08 UTC
Long fixed, RH 9 not supported except in Fedora Legacy, and s-c-p isn't 
shipped anymore.  (Pirut replaced s-c-p.)  Closing.
