Description Dawid Gajownik 2005-07-08 09:12:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8b) Gecko/20050217

Description of problem:
Yum runs in infinitive loop after 'yum provides libstdc++.so.5\*' command.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
yum provides libstdc++.so.5\*

Additional info:

What is more, yum is not able to tell which package provides libstdc++.so.5 file:

[y4kk0@X nessus-plugins]$ yumdownloader compat-libstdc++-33
compat-libstdc%2B%2B-33-3 100% |=========================| 228 kB    00:02
[y4kk0@X nessus-plugins]$ rpm -qpl compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.fc4.i386.rpm
[y4kk0@X nessus-plugins]$ yum provides libstdc++.so.5
Searching Packages:
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Importing Additional filelist information for packages
No Matches found
[y4kk0@X nessus-plugins]$

(I run previously 'yum makecache' as root).

repoquery does not have this problems, though:

[y4kk0@X nessus-plugins]$ LANG=C rpm -q compat-libstdc++-33
package compat-libstdc++-33 is not installed
[y4kk0@X nessus-plugins]$ repoquery --whatprovides libstdc++.so.5
Running from cache, results might be out of date.
[y4kk0@X nessus-plugins]$

It might even be a split-infinitive loop! :)

This was an issue with regexes not being escaped properly.

It's fixed in yum 2.3.4 - closing as upstream

Nice to hear that it's fixed, thanks! Can't wait for the updated version :]
