Comment 1 David Torres 2004-10-16 20:54:28 EDT
problem solved by editing out the base information in the yum.conf
file in /etc/yum.conf
Comment 2 David Torres 2004-10-16 20:58:07 EDT
after editing bases section update is possible but "yum install
<filename>" does not function.  
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2004-10-16 21:15:36 EDT
The problem wasn't solved for that reason.

You just didn't encounter a timeout.

The patch for the above has been checked into cvs.
Comment 4 Michal Jaegermann 2004-10-17 14:56:00 EDT
I got the same looking traceback, with "... no attribute 'reason'",
after trying 'yum list updates' with a default configuration file.
yum-2.1.7-2 version as well.

The second attempt got something with a bit different tail of
a traceback ending with
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/urlgrabber/keepalive.py",
line 368, in read
    s = self._rbuf + self._raw_read(amt)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.3/httplib.py", line 409, in read
    s = self.fp.read(amt)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.3/socket.py", line 301, in read
    data = self._sock.recv(recv_size)
socket.timeout: timed out

The third attempt succeded with expected results.
Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2004-10-17 15:30:48 EDT
It's fixed in CVS, you don't need to add anymore details.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-18 01:44:24 EDT
Fixed in 2.1.8-1.
