Description of problem:
When running the system-config-packages utility to add packages to the
system, I get the following problem with some packages:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/GroupDetails.py", line 171,
in renderer_toggled
  File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/GroupSet.py", line 794, in
    pkg = self.packages[pkgnevra]
KeyError: 'xemacs-0:21.4.15-5.i386'

The result is that I cannot change the state of the checkbox.

I have emacs installed and I wanted to install xemacs instead.
This happens when selecting xemacs or emacs. I haven't tried other

I have got the same experience by using the system-config-packages 
with the Fedora Core 2, but without any error as described above.

It is *just* impossible to select xemacs in the editors list ... .

Comment 2 Christian Rosenkranz 2004-09-08 09:24:20 EDT
I expirienced the same thing trying to install ruby
(Development/Development Tools/ruby)

I installed Fedora Core 2.B (from the (german) RedHat-Magazine DVD).
Comment 3 Peter van Egdom 2004-11-14 03:52:26 EST
A similar problem also happens with FC3. When using
"system-config-packages" to uninstall Emacs, the following traceback
appears :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/GroupDetails.py", line 170,
in renderer_toggled
  File "/usr/share/system-config-packages/GroupSet.py", line 841, in
    pkg = self.packages[pkgnevra]
KeyError: 'emacs-0:21.3-17.i386'
Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 11:08:03 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 5 Marius Andreiana 2005-08-19 16:58:16 EDT
Does FC4 work for you?
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-21 15:14:48 EDT
Closing as resolved in current releases
