Description kurt dicke 2006-12-25 14:52:52 EST
Description of problem:
I installed fc6 yesterday from scratch.
I used yumex to do an update and did a select all.
yumex then ran for about 45 minutes and appeared to be near completion when
the window exited.
I tried starting yumex again and it again exited.
I rebooted and ran yumex again and received exception and request to submit bug.
I read the only yumex bug I found and the trace didn't match so I'm submitting a
new bug.

The text from the exception box:
Component: yumex

Actual results:

Expected results:
yumex success

Comment 1 Tim Lauridsen 2006-12-26 03:26:23 EST
This error happens because of Python 2.5, yumex 1.2.1 dont work with python 2.5
at the moment.
Python 2.5 is not a part of FC6, it only available in Rawhide, it will soon
release a yumex 1.9.1 prerelease there works with python 2.5
Comment 2 Saikat Guha 2006-12-26 12:18:36 EST
Confirming this bug for 
on a fully updated rawhide.
Will update this thread when yumex 1.9.1 is out.

Comment 5 Tim Lauridsen 2007-01-03 09:44:50 EST
I have current 1.9.1 (PreRelease1) should work with python 2.5, please check it
out a report back to me.

get it here :


The changes is to big to get into yumex 1.2.x, so i will not work with python
2.5, only the 1.9.x branch will be working with python 1.5.
