Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1081
GLINT Verify fails in various ways
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
When verifying the package base/basesystem4.9-3 we get the
following errors on the startup terminal, followed by a dead
checkup reporting screen
[root@cyclone local]# glint
Glint Graphical Package Manager -- version 2.6.2

When verifying the package base/dev2.5.9-1, GLINT crashes
and exits with no diagnostic messages.
By the way, we really do like GLINT -- hope there will be
some updates eventually...
I have verified this to happen on a test machine as reported. This
report has been passed on to a developer.
glint is being removed from the distribution. Sorry.
