Description of problem:
The following error occurs when I attempted to install a package, admittedly from an external repository - ATRPMS.
Component: Software Manager
Summary: TBa4e373c6 pirut:141:_searchPackageSelected:AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'replace'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/pirut", line 141, in _searchPackageSelected
desc = desc.replace("\n\n", "\x00")
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'replace'
Local variables in innermost frame:
buffer: <gtk.TextBuffer object (GtkTextBuffer) at 0x96e77fc>
plist: <PirutPackageList object (pirut+PackageList+PirutPackageList) at 0x974c054>
self: <__main__.PackageManager object at 0x90dd4ac>
po: mythnews - 0.20-138.fc6.at.i386
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run pirut/Software Manager
2. Select various packages from list having searched for "mythtv"
3. Select mythnews checkbox, app crashes
App crashes with debug option and traceback
Software selected and installed according to design
Fresh install of Fedora Core 6 on IBM/Lenovo T42 with ATrpms repo being the only additional repository enabled. Previous attempt to install full mythtv package had quit as mplayer is not part of any of these repositories.
Fixed and will be in a post fc6 update (version will be 1.2.7 or later) -- the
package should really have a description, though.
pirut-1.2.7-1.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
pirut-1.2.8-1.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
