Thank you, Tony! That was the missing step.

Deleting the packages from the channel only unlinked them but did not remove them from the database. Going to "Manage Software Packages" and removing them once more finally purged them.


Afterwards I ran spacewalk-data-fsck once more, which produced the expected result:

[root@spacewalk ~]# spacewalk-data-fsck -fr
Removed file missing in db: /var/satellite/redhat/1/a2b/kernel-doc/2.6.32-642.4.2.el6/noarch/a2b8e7402c375a214974398310b3337e1b6bfd75732048436b0be84358fc0151/kernel-doc-2.6.32-642.4.2.el6.noarch.rpm Removed file missing in db: /var/satellite/redhat/1/ffe/kernel-doc/2.6.32-642.el6/noarch/ffe2aea53a54accc295cfc38a66d8341ac7ca8eccbc5b35a8a313ea3865e00fa/kernel-doc-2.6.32-642.el6.noarch.rpm Removed file missing in db: /var/satellite/redhat/1/daf/kernel-doc/2.6.32-642.1.1.el6/noarch/dafcbcca6b84b865ad490ddd8c0bc769eda11f6291d9e3addbfe7f4ec4dc3b82/kernel-doc-2.6.32-642.1.1.el6.noarch.rpm Removed file missing in db: /var/satellite/redhat/1/8b4/kernel-doc/2.6.32-642.3.1.el6/noarch/8b48620cc50f738fc906f03bcc4c9180462f1ed83ee090431fcef05184a2263b/kernel-doc-2.6.32-642.3.1.el6.noarch.rpm

Again, thanks for pointing me into the right direction.

Check to make sure they aren't showing up in the Channels, Manage
Software Channels, Manage Software Packages view under Channel:
Packages in no channels.

When you delete a package from all channels, it's orphaned from all
channels but still in the database and file system.  If you delete it
from the "Packages in no channels view", it'll be deleted from the
database and filesystem.

Subject: [Spacewalk-list] spacewalk-data-fsck not working

Hello all,

I have been playing with Spacewalk 2.5 today and after synching some
packages I did not want, I tried to remove them entirely from
Spacewalk. As an example I have picked the "kernel-doc"
package.

First, I looked for them in the file system:

[root@spacewalk ~]# find /var/satellite -name 'kernel-doc*' -type f
/var/satellite/redhat/1/a2b/kernel-doc/2.6.32-642.4.2.el6/noarch/a2b8e7402c375a214974398310b3337e1b6bfd75732048436b0be84358fc0151/kernel-doc-2.6.32-642.4.2.el6.noarch.rpm
/var/satellite/redhat/1/ffe/kernel-doc/2.6.32-642.el6/noarch/ffe2aea53a54accc295cfc38a66d8341ac7ca8eccbc5b35a8a313ea3865e00fa/kernel-doc-2.6.32-642.el6.noarch.rpm
/var/satellite/redhat/1/daf/kernel-doc/2.6.32-642.1.1.el6/noarch/dafcbcca6b84b865ad490ddd8c0bc769eda11f6291d9e3addbfe7f4ec4dc3b82/kernel-doc-2.6.32-642.1.1.el6.noarch.rpm
/var/satellite/redhat/1/8b4/kernel-doc/2.6.32-642.3.1.el6/noarch/8b48620cc50f738fc906f03bcc4c9180462f1ed83ee090431fcef05184a2263b/kernel-doc-2.6.32-642.3.1.el6.noarch.rpm

Revision 642 is from the CentOS 6 Base channel, while the other three
are from the Updates channel.
I deleted all four of them through the "Manage Software Channels" menu.
 From experience with earlier
versions I knew that this would only remove them from the database but
not from the file system.

So next, I ran spacewalk-data-fsck with different parameters:

[root@spacewalk ~]# spacewalk-data-fsck -v Checking if packages from
database are present on filesystem
  7094 files scanned
Checking if packages from filesystem are present in database
  7094 files scanned
[root@spacewalk ~]# spacewalk-data-fsck -f -r [root@spacewalk ~]#
spacewalk-data-fsck -f -r -v Checking if packages from filesystem are
present in database
  7094 files scanned

However, all four RPM files are still around and spacewalk-data-fsck
does not seem to remove them although the -f option should do exactly
that, if I read the man page correctly.

Is this a bug or am I just using it wrong? Thanks!

Kind regards,
   Steve
