Description Peter Bullock 2007-01-25 15:10:06 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20061011 Fedora/1.5.0.7-7.fc6 Firefox/1.5.0.7

Description of problem:
I have installed FC6 three times on this desktop machine and the first time I run Package Manager (yum) it continually crashes.  If I run Package Updater (pirut) it likewise crashes every time.  I have successfully installed FC6 on three other machines (one desktop and two laptops) and do not experience this problem on those machines.  I have reinstalled a clean install three times completely removing and replacing all partitions on the machine and formatting the newly created partitions.  This is the cleanest install I can think of, but the Package Manager is failing every time "new out of the box".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clean install FC6 - customized to packages I wish to select. 
2. Erase all existing partitions and re-partition and re-format drive
3. This machine is equipped with a pair of 250 GB IDE drives which I am configuring as a RAID 0 mirrored device.
4. As soon as the clean install is complete, I attempt to start either the Package Manager or Software Update and get the crash - which appears to me (from what I can determine) to be the same problem.

Actual Results:
Package Manager (or Package Updater) crashes every time.

Expected Results:
The Package Manager (or Updater) window should have appeared.
