Description James Burke 2006-07-18 21:54:54 EDT
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

How reproducible:

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'
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
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.
Comment 1 Tim Lauridsen 2006-07-19 02:25:32 EDT
Try to update to the latest stable yumex release 1.0.2.
You can change anything before metadata is loaded in the stable release.
