RH 8.0 summary

Message Hi,

OK, the first message to this list, summarizing my experiences so far.
This mail includes the problems I mailed in the "Making RH 8.0 work"
(2) and (3) messages sent to the other mailing list earlier today, but
it also includes a summary of other non-fatal problems and observations.

Server environment: RH 8.0 + mod_python 3.0.1 + jwbernin-postgres-branch

Found (small) bugs and unclear things:

Module "rpm_wrapper" is missing in MODULES list.

Module "current_db" in MODULES list should be renamed to "currentdb".

- At some point "c509" is mentioned i.s.o. "x509".
- The docs do not mention that the database actually has to be created
  before calling "cinstall initdb".
- Future enhancements: somewhat more info about PostgreSQL setup
  (a short checklist might save many of us a *lot* of time - willing
  to make that later).

- The db_type for PostgreSQL is currently "postgres", not "postgresql".
- You now have to use db_user, db_pass, db_host, and db_name (the latter
  for the database name), not a "db_connect" tuple.

Now the *real* problems:


When creating a channel I now get this error:

# cadmin create_channel -n 'Red Hat Linux 8.0' -l rh8.0 -a i386 -r 8.0 -d "Red Hat Linux 8.0"
Traceback (most recent call last):

    return u.close()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/​xmlrpclib.py", line 571, in close
    raise apply(Fault, (), self._stack[0])
xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault -1: "While running 'cadmin.createChannel': caught\nserver.apac​heRequest.UnknownXML​ : Invalid request received (class xmlrpc.cadmin is not defined (function = createChannel)).\n">


Apache delivers empty pages for *every* URL (not only XMLRPC) after
the current.conf - as generated by cinstall - is included. The
Apache error_log says (multiple times for every server access):

[Sun Feb 02 21:14:48 2003] [error] python_connection: ConnectionDispatch() returned nothing.

The Apache current.conf file doesn't look bad at first sight.

OK, that's it for now.
