Description of problem:

I start a package installation through yum and cancel it immediately.
It fails with traceback

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install package. 
2. cancel using control+c immediately

Actual results:

yum -y gnome-panel
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 6, in ?
    import yummain
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 23, in ?
    import yum
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 35, in ?
    import depsolve
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/yum/depsolve.py", line 30, in ?
    import packages
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/yum/packages.py", line 18, in ?
    import rpm

Expected results:

Additional info:

It does this correctly if cancelled after a minute or so

the main yum handler that captures the keyboard interrupt isn't loaded
at that time.

There's not much I can do.
Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2004-11-15 23:08:03 EST
I have no idea on the actual code but perhaps trying to load the
keyboard handing module or something as early as possible might help
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2004-11-30 01:10:05 EST
I load it in /usr/bin/yum, now.

if you ctrl-c at that point it will try to catch it.

beyond that, not a lot I can do.

This is fixed in yum 2.1.12
