User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20061219 Fedora/184.108.40.206-1.fc6 Firefox/220.127.116.11 pango-text
Description of problem:
I have been installing all of the updates as they become available. I have been able to update using yum, but the graphical interface does not work. Upon its crash, I was instructed to go to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla and file a report. Although I have seen this problem listed in Bugzilla, I have not seen it listed for the PPC.
I am using a PowerBook G4, 1.33 GHz processor. I have also noticed this issue on a dual 1 GHz PowerMac G4.
I have attempted to use the rm /var/lib/rpm/__db* and rpm --rebuilddb in the terminal. This fixed it yesterday night (01/24/2006), but it did not fix it this morning (01/25/2006)
The following dump file was created on my PowerBook G4:
Component: Software Updater

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
version 1.2.8 Release 1.fc6
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launched Software Update
2. Crash occured, giving me the above dump file.
The following message come up:
An unhandled exception has occured. THis is most likely a bug. Please save the crash dump and file a detailed bug report against Software Updater at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla
It then gave the contents of the dump file, as seen above.
I expected to have a list of updates, or at least a message saying no updates were requried/fould.
exactly the same exception to software updater and same package info being
retrieved (digikam) on my fc6 i386 or i686 running on an HP AMD 64 live (not
running 64 bit version)
One more dup of bug 224292
Maybe "genre: optinoal" is not perfectly correc ? ;-)
same CompsException during update in YUM Extender
