Yumex crashes at Enable/Disable Repositories
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:56:56 EST
Description of problem:
When I start Yumex from the Menu, at the moment of executing the Enable/Disable
Repositories step it sends an exception code then Exits.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (everytime it starts)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just run Yumex from the Menu
Not able to install components with Yumex
Be able to install components with Yumex
I selected Yumex because I receive an error on the Add/Remove Software
applications that comes with Fedora, but since this applications sends me an
error of "UNABLE TO RETRIEVE SOFTWARE INFORMATION: Cannot find a valid baseurl
for repo: core" I looked for another option and found Yumex, I installed yumex
with yum install yumex, them executed it for the first time, it opened ok, then
I whent to Preferences and set up a proxy, closed it and re-open it and the
Please attach the exception text, so i can see the error.
It sounds like there is a problem with the proxy definition, what have you typed
in the proxy preferences.
you can use 'yumex -n' to start yumex without loading repo metadata, and then
check the proxy preferences.
