Thank you for the report. However this has been reported against the incorrect
component. Changing component from Fedora Core ->Yum to Fedora Extras -> Yumex.

Comment 3 Eli Wapniarski 2005-09-18 04:10:14 UTC
Ahh... OK (regarding the change from Fedora Core to Fedora Extras) Didn't see that. Thanks  

Comment 4 Tim Lauridsen 2005-10-04 07:27:02 UTC
I have not tested Yumex with yum plugins, i will look into this

Comment 5 Tim Lauridsen 2005-10-06 19:08:08 UTC
I have fixed the bug, i have disabled yum plugins when running yumex.
The fix will be included in next build. 0.42-06.

Comment 6 Eli Wapniarski 2005-10-07 06:36:51 UTC
Great, that yumex won't crash... However, will I be able to download only if need be. 

Comment 7 Tim Lauridsen 2005-10-08 16:28:31 UTC
The yum plugins is designed to be used with commandline yum, they will not work
the way they are supposed to i Yumex, because yumex uses the Yum API, in another
than the standard yum client. You can used alle the plugins you like in standard
yum, but in yumex they will not be initialized.

Comment 8 Eli Wapniarski 2005-10-08 19:06:24 UTC
K... and thanks. It seems to be working now. 

Comment 9 Tim Lauridsen 2005-10-09 07:05:22 UTC
If downloading only is at importend feature to you, i can put it on my yumex
todo list.

Comment 10 Eli Wapniarski 2005-10-09 08:31:19 UTC
It is an important feature when trying to install things like X, kde-libs, kde-base, qt, video driver. 
So if it can be worked in, that would be great.
