Crashing yumex via changing options on start
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:38 EST
Description of problem:
Yumex crashes if one decides to change Repository options before it finished
updating headers/etc upon start.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : yumex Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 0.99.16 Vendor: Fedora Project
Release : 1.0.fc5 Build Date: Thu 06 Apr 2006 07:17:53
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start yumex from an xterm box
2. Upon starting, progress bars on bottom indicate download/updating things--
While it's doing this, click on 'Repos' in left pane.
3. Now in repos dialog, change repos checkboxes and select 'Refresh'
I would get different crash reports. A routing is not being reset while using
obsolete variables-- I can tell this because one crash report says 'out of
range' for some tuple. I believe this shouldn't be too hard to fix. If one does
activity on any of the buttons, there should be a cancel dialog popup or there
should be a suspend/wait/reset states implemented so the variables set from the
Repos dialog box be reflected.
Try to update to the latest stable yumex release 1.0.2.
You can change anything before metadata is loaded in the stable release.
