smart does not recognize package channels
|||Smart Package Manager||
I have recently updated to updated rpm 5.2.1 and python 2.7, after rebuilding smart ( both 1.3.1 + 1.4 trunk ) it does not appear to recognize any software channel.
When running smart update it neither recognizes any packages present in the repository.
When running smart search <insert locally installed package here> it does not return any matches. rpm 5.2.x as such works fine.
As Unity is already using rpm5 with smart just fine my first guess would be that the python update to 2.7 is to blame, but of course this is just a wild guess.
Starting to dig now ... .
Attached is a file with a few commands to show the behaviour stated above.
