Description Peter Williams 2006-03-25 16:16:50 EST
If I start the yum shell and try to install a package, it seems to start the
process, then bails:

$ sudo yum shell
> list gstreamer-devel
Setting up repositories
updates                                                              [1/3]
core                                                                 [2/3]
extras                                                               [3/3]
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Available Packages
gstreamer-devel.i386                     0.10.4-1               updates
> install gstreamer-devel
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments

(Needless to say gstreamer-devel was not already installed or anything.) Nothing
happens after the 'Parsing package install arguments'. Variants with other
packages, more than one package, etc all yield the same behavior.

the whole point of the shell is so you can stack a set of commands therefore:

install gstreamer-devel
remove something else
install something

then you have to type 'run'
to run the transaction you've setup.

type 'help' for information on the shell.

My b.

Might I suggest:

> install gstreamer-devel
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Type 'run' to execute this transaction.

I did a yum help and didn't notice the 'run' command and if I had, I wouldn't
have thought that I needed to use it to execute the transaction.
