did you try to use --source? Source rpms are "special".

Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2005-04-14 22:27:18 UTC
Oh, sorry, misread the bug report - .nosrc.rpm are not exactly supported by os

Comment 3 Mihai Ibanescu 2005-04-14 22:28:42 UTC
John, can you please try to reproduce the error? We can try to patch it to work
with those packages, but AFAIR it's really difficult to know it's a nosrc.rpm -
nothing in the rpm header tells you that.

Comment 4 John Wregglesworth 2005-04-15 14:52:40 UTC
I tried uploading a nosrc rpm without --source and got this traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 413, in ?
    sys.exit(main() or 0)
  File "", line 133, in main
  File "", line 276, in packages
    ret = self.package(p)
  File "", line 301, in package
    h = uploadLib2.get_header(package, source=self.options.source)
  File "", line 598, in get_header
    raise UploadError("Unexpected RPM package type")
uploadLib2.UploadError: Unexpected RPM package type

When I tried uploading the package using --source it supposedly uploads the
package to the channel (gets a 200 result code), but I can't find it anywhere
through the web interface. It looks like rhnpush treats nosrc packages the same
way it treats src packages.

Comment 5 John Wregglesworth 2005-05-25 16:32:18 UTC
Test Plan:

o Find a nosrc rpm and a binary version of the nosrc rpm.

o Using rhnpush, push the binary version of the nosrc rpm into a channel.

  rhnpush --server=servername/APP --channel=channel_name file.rpm

o Using rhnpush, push the nosrc rpm using the --source option. Doesn't have to
be into a channel.

  rhnpush --server=servername/APP --source ~/file.nosrc.rpm

o Through the web interface, go to Channels->Manage Software Channels->Manage
Software Packages and click on the name of the binary rpm that you pushed earlier.

o The Source RPM field should list the nosrc version of the rpm that you pushed

o The Download section at the bottom of the screen should list the nosrc rpm as
being available for download.

o Download the nosrc rpm and ensure that the filename is correct.
