Description Pavol Babinčák 2021-07-14 09:56:05 UTC
Description of problem:
tito build cannot be used on RHEL 7 machine which has python2 interpreter

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. $ podman run --rm -ti rhel7 bash   
# yum-config-manager --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms > /dev/null
# yum-config-manager --enable rhel-7-server-extras-rpms > /dev/null
# yum --quiet -y install
1. Install tito: yum --quiet -y install tito
2. Take any configured project, e.g. tito repo itself: git clone && cd ./tito
3. Try to create a tarball: tito build --offline --tgz

Actual results:
Creating output directory: /tmp/tito
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/tito", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('tito==0.6.18', 'console_scripts', 'tito')()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tito/", line 910, in main
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tito/", line 209, in main
    return module.main(argv)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tito/", line 391, in main
    builder_class=self.options.builder, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tito/", line 161, in create_builder
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tito/", line 976, in get_class_by_name
    mod = __import__(module, globals(), locals(), [class_name])
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tito/builder/", line 6, in <module>
    from tito.builder.main import \
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tito/builder/", line 24, in <module>
    import urllib.request
ImportError: No module named request

Expected results:
No error, e.g.:

Building package [tito-0.6.18-1]
Wrote: /tmp/tito/tito-0.6.18.tar.gz

Additional info:

I believe this bug was introduced with which uses python3-only import.

Thank you for the report Pavol and for taking the time to point out the source of the problem.

I had a little difficulty with the reproducer, so I modified it slightly.

$ docker run -it centos:7 bash
# yum install epel-release
# yum install tito 
# git clone && cd ./tito
# tito build --offline --tgz

The proposed fix is here:

No worries! I guess I should've written that I have run those commands on already subscribed RHEL 8 machine.

I guess you might have run into issue with that - subscription manager is disabled in containers in that case but one could use yum-config-manager to enable repositories.
