Description Gary Thomas 2007-11-28 14:36:32 EST
Description of problem:
Because of bug 403181, I had to rebuild the repodata on the
releases/8/Fedora/ppc/os tree.  If I include the SQL files,
anaconda dies.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rebuild the repodata on a ppc32 system (I use a mac-mini):
   Start with a fresh copy of the release tree.  I download this using rsync.
   # cd .../releases/8/Fedora/ppc/os
   # mv repodata{,.BAD}
   # cp repodata.BAD/{Fedora-8-,}comps.xml
   # createrepo -d -g repodata.BAD/comps.xml .
2. Install via NFS on a PlayStation/3
3. dies during dependency checks
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

Install works fine if I leave out the "-d" (still building repodata
on the mac-mini and installing on the PS/3)

We should catch this exception in yum and pass up a yum exception rather than
requiring callers to know about the details
