Description Claude Jones 2006-03-26 18:59:46 UTC
Description of problem:
When two .repo files use the same name in brackets to describe a section such as
"[base]", Yumex will only list one of the repos in the repository window - for
example, adding repos from blag linux (a Fedora derivative enhanced for video
editors), the name in brackets for the core repo is "base", the same name the
Fedora repo file uses in that section. The result in my case was that Yumex
would only list the blag linux repo in the repo list window

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

How reproducible:
behaved exactly the same way on three different machines

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter two repo files in yum.repos.d that use the same names within the
brackets that define sections of the repository
Actual results:
Only one repository containing the identical section name will wind up being
listed in the repository list window

Expected results:
would expect Yumex to be able to list the two repos, somehow

Additional info:
work-around was to rename the sections of the blag repos to "blag-base",
"blag-extras" etc...

Comment 1 Tim Lauridsen 2006-03-27 06:45:06 UTC
Section names has to be unique, it is the way yumex & yum is designed to work.
So you must rename the sections.
