error during the running software updating

You had another copy of pup/pirut/yum running.  I've changed things so the error
gets caught and gives a better error message now
Comment 3 LarryT 2006-03-03 00:30:16 EST
yep :-[ that's right i was running yum update when i launched the software updater !

Nevertheless i have just launched it now and i get only one message : 
unable to retrieve software information.
If i click 'ok' the window is closed.
yum works fine (since i have confgiure it with my proxy + user & passwd).

i got the same message when i click on application/add remove software :
retrieving software information takes a long time and ends with the message
"unable to retrieve software information".

should i have some key to import ?
(i say again that yum works fine, since a configure the proxy using bashrc).

If it's showing the dialog, then /var/run/yum.pid exists and has a valid pid of
a running process in it, which means that you can't run another copy of
yum/pup/pirut.  There's a case where it's not exiting properly right now and I'm
looking into that now
Comment 7 LarryT 2006-03-04 00:33:11 EST
well i am nearly sur that the problem is around the proxy.
To use yum i need to configure bashrc with http_proxy and a second line with
export http_proxy !
If i type those info in the yum.conf, it doesn't work and returns the message :
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: development
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: development

This is exactly the same message i get with software updater !

Is there a way to configure proxy to work with software updater ?
