$ rpm -q yum

Not a very nice way to tell the user yum is busy doing something else
Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2007-05-27 08:52:06 EDT
agreed. I'll take a look at fixing the traceback.
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2007-06-20 11:22:37 EDT
okay, I think this is fixed in cvs - will be available in 3.2.1. When it comes
out reopen if this is still an issue
Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-06-20 11:44:43 EDT
Ok, thanks a lot!
