Description Thomas Mashos 2006-10-14 12:30:49 EDT
Description of problem:  Yumex crashes everytime I run it.  If I unselect "Load
Yum Metadata" from the "Yum Extender Launcher" I can get into the program, but
if I try to refresh the repos from there it will crash again with the same error

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):1.1.4

How reproducible:Happens everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select Applications, System Tools, Yumex
2.Enter root password
3.Select Ok
Actual results:
Yumex crashes during "Building Package Lists: Available"

Expected results:
Yumex should continue to build all package lists and show me programs that need

Additional info:
The following is the crash dump Yumex gave me

I forgot to add that I have reproduced this on both my Dell Inspiron 5100
running Fedora Core 6 Test 3 as well as my Homebuilt Athlon XP desktop running
Fedora Core 6 Test 3.  Both systems have had all updates installed and just
recently did yumex fail to work properly
Comment 2 Tim Lauridsen 2006-10-15 01:36:34 EDT
It is an issue with yum-3.0-05, it should be fixed in yum-3.0-06 currently in
