Description Greg Douglas 2007-08-03 13:07:29 UTC
Description of problem:

Just upgraded from FC6.  When launching Yumex, it completes Yum Setup, then
Builds Package List, and crashes with the following message:

  File : /usr/share/yumex/yumex.py , line 778, in <module>

    self.yumbase.populatePackages(['installed','updates','available'])

try this as root:
yum update yum yumex
yum clean all
yumex

Comment 2 Greg Douglas 2007-08-03 14:32:15 UTC
Tried it, and still the same problem.  

There were no updates to yum and yumex.

Thanks.

Comment 3 Tim Lauridsen 2007-08-03 14:44:17 UTC
Weird:
The latest yumex in fedora-update is 1.9.10.

what does 
yumex --version

&

yum --version 

says.

Comment 4 Greg Douglas 2007-08-03 18:00:09 UTC
Indeed, I have just found a problem with my updates.repo file and have just
updated the system.

I am now at yumex version yumex-1.9.10-2.0.fc7

I have also replaced both yumex config files to the .rpmnew versions.

Unfortunately, I am still getting this:

Error Type: <type 'exceptions.AttributeError'> 
Error Value: Updates instance has no attribute 'obsoletes' 
  File : /usr/share/yumex/yumex.py , line 796, in <module>
    mainApp = YumexApplication()

    self.setupYum()

    self.yumbase.populatePackages(['installed','updates','available']) 
  File : /usr/share/yumex/packages.py , line 83, in populatePackages
    self._packages[flt] = [p for p in self._getPackages(flt)] 
  File : /usr/share/yumex/packages.py , line 181, in _getPackages
    obsoletes = self.up.getObsoletesTuples( newest=1 ) 
  File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rpmUtils/updates.py , line 553, in
getObsoletesTuples
    obslist = self.obsoletes.keys() 


Comment 5 Greg Douglas 2007-08-03 20:13:00 UTC
OK, I've got it fixed.  I also replaced the yum.conf to the newer
yum.conf.rpmnew, and then ran another yum update.

All appears well now

Thanks, and this can be closed.
