dump: Yumex instant crash while gathering package info

Same here. Pirut crashes in a similar manner, so perhaps our package databses
are corrupt?

Comment 4 Bas Mevissen 2007-01-25 09:34:45 EST
Same here. The "yum update" still works. Also installing packages still works.
Comment 5 An. N 2007-01-25 10:03:04 EST
Seems that someone botched the description for one of the packages in the
database (it's near digicam). Where it should've said "optional" it says "optinoal".

Modifying 2 lines of code in /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/comps.py
solved my problem (it's a quick and dirty hack, nevertheless).
Comment 6 Luis Montalvo 2007-01-26 11:39:54 EST
Yumex works for me now. I did nothing on my side though.
Comment 7 Bas Mevissen 2007-01-26 11:49:19 EST
Same here, problem was apparently in the database.
Maybe this can be a reminder to make yum etc. more solid to this kind of
problems. Hopefully FC7 will bring performance and stability improvements in
this respect.
Comment 8 Tim Lauridsen 2007-01-26 12:56:50 EST
Caused by a typo in the extras comps.xml, changes has been made in yum to avoid
this kind of error.
The typo has also been fixed.
