Description James Hall 2005-06-18 15:21:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The version of yum that comes with fc4 display incorrect error message:
Existing lock ///var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running. Aborting.

Which should obviously be:
Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running. Aborting.

No biggy, but important we catch things like this to keep fedora all nice :)


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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open terminal and become root
2. Start yum e.g.  'yum update'
3. Open another terminal and repeat steps 1 and 2

  

Actual Results:  "Existing lock ///var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running. Aborting." is displayed

Expected Results:  "Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running. Aborting." should be displayed

Additional info:

Tiny bug.
