Description Rudolf Kastl 2005-11-16 10:16:58 UTC
Description of problem:
with default configuration its not possible to yumdownloader --source dosbox.
should work in my eyes since extras is enabled by default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
latest fc4 rel

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora core 4
2. yumdownloader --source dosbox (for example)
Actual results:
yumdownloader --source dosbox
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yumdownloader", line 130, in ?
  File "/usr/bin/yumdownloader", line 70, in main
    my = initYum(opts.source)
  File "/usr/bin/yumdownloader", line 43, in initYum
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/PIL/", line 225, in doRepoSetup

  File "", line 544, in baseurlSetup
  File "", line 427, in check
yum.Errors.RepoError: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released

Expected results:
yumdownloader should use the yum configuration properly (mirrorlists etc) to be
able to grab src files from all enabled repos.

Additional info:
no clue where the bug occurs i was too lazy to look into the source.

This isn't really a bug in yum-utils but in the lack of configuration files for
the source repo tree. This ought to be moved to component "fedora-release", but
there's no bugzilla component for that. (?!)

Comment 3 Rudolf Kastl 2005-11-28 13:23:20 UTC
well also the exception should be handled properly.

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2005-11-28 13:49:41 UTC
Okay, sure. :)

Comment 5 Rudolf Kastl 2005-12-01 17:57:06 UTC
problem also occurs with updates repository

Comment 6 Jesse Keating 2006-01-25 00:03:54 UTC
I'm going to look into having a sources repo configured in the release and
available on the mirrors for FC5.

Comment 7 Ian Burrell 2006-01-31 05:46:09 UTC
It would also be good to get repodata for the SRPMS directories for base and

Also, I would suggest using a consistent naming for the repositories.  Like
base-source, updates-sources, extras-source.  That way, doing
'--enablerepo=\*-source' would select all the source repos.  It could even be
done automatically by 'yumdownloader --source'.

Comment 8 Jesse Keating 2006-02-22 23:29:34 UTC
Fedora-release package in rawhide includes -source repos for base, updates,
extras, development.  Also -debuginfo for these.  repodata is generated for
these dirs too.
