Local variables in innermost frame:

self: <yum.plugins.DepsolvePluginConduit instance at 0x9a8ee2c>
arg: None

Expected results:
install software

Additional info:
Included details because it was the second time software installer run during
session, possible stale locks ?

Side effect seemed to be knocking out gnome panel and menu system, reboot needed.

Oh yeah, add Sofware-Instller to component dropdown in BZ, this bug is entered
against yum.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-01-15 13:19:39 EST
Which yum plugins do you have installed?
Comment 2 Herbert Carl Meyer 2007-01-17 15:56:46 EST
installonyn and axel's kmdl
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-09 16:42:56 EDT
This is a bug in the kmdl plugin, but current releases of yum and the plugin
should be happier.
