Description Cipriano Groenendal 2005-04-04 09:21:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
After running apt-get mirror-select, and selecting one of the mirrors ( for example), the mirror-list installs both rpm and rpm-src entries into /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mirror-select.list.
However, when running apt-get update it fails to download the srclist files.
This happens on all mirrors I've tried.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1) apt-get mirror-select
2) select both Core and Extra
3) select any mirror(13 will do fine;))
4) run apt-get update

Or just run 
echo -e "1,2\nc\n13\nc\n13\nc\n" | apt-get mirror-select && apt-get update

Actual Results:  apt installs rpm-src entries into my sources.list, but they no longer exist.

Expected Results:  It should download all entries.

Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2005-04-04 11:23:20 UTC
src.rpm packages are no longer provided on due to disk space

Comment 2 Cipriano Groenendal 2005-04-04 11:35:44 UTC
Which is then rsynched by all mirrors.
In that case, someone should edit the mirror-select list that is fetched by apt 
during an apt-get mirror-select, and remove the entries.

Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2005-04-05 06:52:38 UTC
This is already fixed in the real Extras package, only FC2 apt from
times is affected. The problem can't be fixed on server side unfortunately since
mirror-select generates both rpm and rpm-src sources.list entries based on the
base repo location information retrieved from the mirrors list.

Do people still update packages on / what the heck should be done with

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-04-05 12:30:30 UTC
This is my fault... I totally removed SRPMS from  Should I re-add an
empty directory?  If so which?

Comment 5 Panu Matilainen 2005-04-05 12:53:34 UTC
There should be a matching SRPMS.<component> directory for each component. At
the minumum, SRPMS.os and SRPMS.updates should be created (and repository
metadata updated) to fix the default setup.

Comment 6 Warren Togami 2005-04-07 03:09:04 UTC
Please test now, should be fixed.

Comment 7 Cipriano Groenendal 2005-04-07 08:33:54 UTC
Works fine again, the 404-ing files are now found.
