Description Jan Pazdziora 2009-01-13 13:15:54 UTC
Description of problem:

When osa0dispatcher is started the following message appears:

sh: dbhome: command not found

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

# rpm -q cx_Oracle

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unset ORACLE_HOME, as Spacewalk installation no longer sets ORACLE_HOME for root.
2. Run service osa-dispatcher start or any other Python program which connects to the database.
Actual results:

# service osa-dispatcher start
Starting osa-dispatcher: sh: dbhome: command not found
                                                           [  OK  ]

Expected results:

# service osa-dispatcher start
Starting osa-dispatcher:                                   [  OK  ]

Additional info:

The code which calls dbhome is in


        if not os.environ.has_key("ORACLE_HOME"):
            os.environ["ORACLE_HOME"] = os.popen("dbhome '*'").read()

It probably should not be there, or it should check that /usr/bin/dbhome (?) exists before trying, or it should redirect stderr, or something.

/usr/share/rhn/server/rhnSQL/ is part of spacewalk-backend-sql

Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2009-01-13 13:44:35 UTC
Mean culpa. I'm sorry. Yes, the package and version which causes problems is indeed

# rpm -qf /usr/share/rhn/server/rhnSQL/
