Description of problem:
After rawhide update and population of /etc/yum.repos.d/ by
fedora-release-3-rawhide package, yum terminates immediately with no
error message, regardless of debug level specified.  Replacing the
previously-working /etc/yum.conf with /etc/yum.conf.rpmnew (and
preferably editing .repo file[s] to specify your favorite
"baseurl[s]") makes yum functional again.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
2. Note lack of effect

Actual Results:  Immediate return with no error message.

Expected Results:  Updates should still work with a previously-working
yum.conf present, or at least return an informative error message.

the exitting w/o a message is a bug. And it's been fixed in cvs.

 you need to fix your config file. B/t the /etc/yum.conf and the
entries in /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo

you have a duplicate repository name.

Comment 2 Phil Schaffner 2004-10-27 20:34:00 UTC
Don't see "resolution/CVS" as an option below, so will close this when
it gets to "RAWHIDE".

Replacing yum.conf with yum.conf.rpmnew and editing fedora-devel.repo
to point to my favorite repository, as hinted at above, fixed the
duplicate entries for [development].  Thanks.

Still seems like this update procedure will break user's
configurations on FC2-FC3 upgrades.  Perhaps yum.conf should be
replaced, perhaps with a version with a few more comments on migrating
to the yum.repos.d paradigm, and the original moved to
yum.conf.rpmsave with a warning message.

resolving as rawhide.
