[rhn-users] Sources from up2date for already downloaded binaries?



I sent this message to the 'redhat-list' mailing list, but I got no
reply.  I'm hoping that it's more on-topic here.  Furthermore, the
redhat web site doesn't list a link to any archives for this mailing
list, so I can't tell if this question has already been answered.

I'm using RH9.0 on my i386 box.

My default configuration for up2date is to install only binaries. I
would like the source distribution for a few of these
already-installed binaries, but I can't seem to get these sources
via up2date.  If I issue the following command ...

  up2date --src PACKAGE

... where PACKAGE is an already-installed binary package, i just get
the following output:

  Fetching package list for channel: redhat-linux-i386-9...
  ########################################

  Fetching Obsoletes list for channel: redhat-linux-i386-9...
  ########################################

  The following packages you requested are already updated:
  PACKAGE

I get the same result when I add the --force option.

If I run up2date-config and check "Receive source RPM with binary
package", and then if I repeat the above up2date command (with and
without --force), I still get the same results.

How can I use up2date to get source RPM's for previously installed
binaries?

Thanks in advance.
