Description of problem:
Version of yum 2.6.0 ; i386 machine; kernel 2.6.15-1.2096_FC5
After the yum cache got updated, yum -C provides <string> or yum provides
<string> fails- The string at the time bug occurred invovled 'glxinfo'
A while later, (which I did no shit), bothered to try this again, this time I
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This sounds like one of the very remote bugs like one I enlisted several years
ago to reportbug on debian, in which involved strange mishaps.
Steps to Reproduce:
As I'm saying this is a *remote bug. It would probably barely ever happen, but
someone should check the code for this possible recurring symptom(as results
should show when there isn't). ALSO, yesterday after running fc5 two weeks after
its release I got my first kernel panic *EVER on FC5..
Sorry I did not bother to note the kernel panic output (didn't bother to record
which I will next time it ever happens) and this bug, which I doubt any time
soon someone else will report, but may do so in the future.
I should say this is a bug, but likely it is not very easily reproducible,
someone should look into the code what may cause this..
I think this was a separate issue, actually.
could you see if you can replicate this on yum 2.6.1? thanks
