Does anyone here have experience installed OMSA 6.3 with yum? I'm
attempting this on VMware ESX 4.0u2 which is based off RHEL5. When I
setup a yum repo and try to do the yum installs, I get this fun
traceback from yum:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/rpmtrans.py", line 315, in
self._instCloseFile( bytes, total, h )
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/rpmtrans.py", line 378, in
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/rpmtrans.py", line 211, in
te_fn = '%s/transaction-done.%s' % (self.base.conf.persistdir,
AttributeError: RPMTransaction instance has no attribute '_ts_time'
error: python callback <bound method RPMTransaction.callback of
<yum.rpmtrans.RPMTransaction instance at 0x1d6f9830>> failed, aborting!
When digging into it, it seems there's a known bug with yum in el5 where
it breaks with %pretrans, and both the srvadmin-deng and
srvadmin-omacore packages have a %pretrans script.
Has anyone else run into this? Any suggestions on how to work around it?
