Description Chris Goebel 2002-12-13 21:17:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

Description of problem:
the rhn package refresh would fail for all of my rh8 boxes

I found a typo in /usr/share/rhn/actions/

line 280
       is: rhnPackageProfile.updatePackageProfile()
should be: rhnPackageInfo.updatePackageProfile()

I made the above change and the "package refresh" command
now works properly

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to redhat network
2. schedule a "package list refresh"


Actual Results:  an error 20 will be reported

Expected Results:  the rhn will receive an updated list of packages installed on
the machine

Additional info:

I found the problem and fixed, see description
