Installing Fixlets, which does not have CVE as N/A or None

How to install the Fixlets, which has the CVE as N/A or None with local repository like Yum on RHEL. I’m from RCP team trying to support non-security patches on RHEL. The security patches has the CVE #, hence the installation works fine. Where as the non-security patches has CVE as N/A or none (refer In this case, yum install been called with N/A or None as argument instead of CVE. The yum install return success, but the patch was not installed.

Can you guide, how to install this kind of patches?


You are saying fixlet RHBA-2018:0144 - Python-Dmidecode Bug Fix Update - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (x86_64) (ID: 18014401) from Patches for RHEL 7 site is not working?

If you are talking about yum, for example, yum update --cve CVE-2008-0947

You can do this for errata numbers,

yum update --advisory=RHBA-2018:0144

Thanks a lot, Chuxin… It worked for me
