Description Luciano Rocha 2005-05-23 21:26:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Yum catches errors on runTransaction but raises an invalid exception:
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/__init_.py, line 333:
            raise yum.Errors.YumBaseError, errstring
should be
            raise Errors.YumBaseError, errstring

I got a not-enough-free-space error on runTransaction. After fixing the line, yum reports the exception as it's stored, not in a user-friendly format. But at least, it reports the error, not just breaks. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum upgrade

Actual Results:  crashed

Expected Results:  reported not enough free space for the new packages
