up2date errors - no solution yet!

Don't know how it broke, but up2date is giving me the errors below. I have tried removing all the files from /var/spool/up2date, but this did not help.

> kernel 2.4.20-28.8smp
> up2date-3.0.7.2-1

- My entitlement is up to date, so that is not an issue.
- I found some other threads with these exact same errors, but no working solutions have been posted thus far....

Does anyone know how to fix these (apparently Python)

~dean

Question Up2date

Unable to find this issue and it is bugging me.

When I do an 'up2date', DL and install go just fine, but when I restart my machine, there are now 3 'versions' (?) of RedHat 9 on my screen (I have used the 'up2date' feature twice since initial install). Does RH9 retain all previous 'up2date' installations so you can revert to an earlier install if a problem is encountered? Does this sort of emulate Windoze XP 'restore' feature?

those are RH9 kernels. Well, those are just kernels really. It's not smart to boot into an older kernel unless a new one fails to boot.

It's a fail safe.

...sure, it's system restore, Windows just stole it from Linux (duh) .

Thanks for the info - I was afraid I had installed 3 separate OS. I suspected it was a 'restore' and I believe you that Window$ purloined form Linux. :-)

You can 'kinda' say that you have 3 seperate OSes installed... kinda. The different is, it's just a kernel. You don't have 3 calculators, and 3 notepads, 3 scandisks, and 3 defragmenters installed.

1 set of applications, 3 kernels. Good stuff .

In order to get my Up2date working, I just removed the s from the https://, I can't remember exactly where I did it, except that it was in a configurations window, not in console, I was very tired and frustrated at the time, but maybe you can find this helpful.

a similar problem here, but i feel it's masochistic in nature.
i got rh9 shoehorned into reiserfs partitions, with hdparm -a64 -c3 -d1 -k1 -m16 -n1 -u1 -X67 /dev/hda /dev/hdb. this puppy just screamed along fine until i went from rh's 2.4.20-30.9 to kernel 2.6.4. i did check the option for "configuration change" on the gui.
now i get this:

[root@owensby root]# up2date
rpmdb: unable to join the environment
error: db4 error(11) from dbenv->open: Resource temporarily unavailable
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Resource temporarily unavailable (11)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 993, in ?
main()
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 612, in main
up2dateAuth.updateLoginInfo()
File "up2dateAuth.py", line 112, in updateLoginInfo
File "up2dateAuth.py", line 96, in login
File "up2dateAuth.py", line 48, in maybeUpdateVersion

release, version = getOSVersionAndRelease()

for h in ts.dbMatch('Providename', "redhat-release"):
TypeError: rpmdb open failed
[root@owensby root]#

did i leave something unchecked in the kernel config? is up2date totally incompatible with the 2.6 kernels? if the config change option is unchecked, it still does the same thing.
-O.

i would suggest getting rid of or not using up2date, and trying apt or yum or something else,
synaptic for gui users. When i was using redhat i remember up2date panel disappearing sometimes and i had once to reinstall it because of a bug(i followed instructions on redhat web site).

rpm are terrifics...maybe because i've been using debian for few years. I remember rpm hunting and dependencies or not seeing all available packages to install graphically(stuck with that funny GUI displaying only majors categories), hopefully there was the command line. Now i can't even think about using a rpm based distro , because personnaly(personnaly !!) i don't like rpm(package management), ram usage of redhat(slow and old pc),....

Any idea of what happen as script can't write /usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT? I have root command. see below. But first remove /usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT and also remove GPG-KEY because it will keep saying that I already has those files there so won't do anything, the trick is to remove those 2 files. But now, trying to downloading new-cert.sh via wget command, but cannot write to /usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT? what i am doing wrong, need help? Have been reinstall more than 5 times so far, first modem, kppp, and now up2date? Thought it was cakewalk, but it didn't. Oh well, need your help, thanks.


[jlukocs@localhost jlukocs]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost jlukocs]# wget -q -O - https://rhn.redhat.com/help/new-cert.sh | /bin/bash
The script cannot write to /usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT
Please run the command as root (in a shell -- use the "su" command)

I've read most of this thread and still can't figure out my problem. I updated the rpm's for up2date and updated the certificate. This solved part of my problem. Whenever i run up2date, it would freeze before it even started downloading the updates. After i did the 2 things mentioned above, i was able to at least start downloading. It only downloads 1-2 files if that then freezes again.

I tried running up2date -u and had the same problem. Any idea as to why it keeps freezing?

Is there any other up2date servers other than the default? Maybe my connection to that server timesout or something, anyone know a dif address i could try?

Running Redhat 9.0, fresh install.
AMD XP 2100+
512mb ddr pc2700
WD 80gig 7200rpm
