#113 closed defect (invalid)

yum 3.4.3-7 should list dependency of urlgrabber > 3.1

Reported by: Lewis Rosenthal Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: rpm Version:
Severity: Keywords:


As we know that urlgrabber 3.1 fails when fetching via https, we should consider bumping the dependency for yum 3.4.3 to something above 3.1. The current urlgrabber in our repo is 3.10.1.

Without this dependency, merely updating yum will not allow SSL connections to function.

Related to issue #91.

I don't think yum 3.4.3 needs urlgrabber 3.10.1 to work.
I understand https requires ulgrabber 3.10.1 but this is not a reason for forcing yum to update urlgrabber too. 'yum update' should update both packages.

Fair enough, Yuri, and I do see your point. The older urlgrabber does work for non-SSL connections well enough, so let's close this as invalid.

The correct way to force urlgrabber version is to put it into your repo rpm file. To install configuration files into repos.d we use a rpm package (see netlabs-rel/exp). You can do the same for your repo and put a Require tag there.
