yum groupinstall KDE... breaks setroobleshoot-server - too many open files
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:57:46 EST
Description of problem:
I installed F6.91 on qemu (no GNOME, no X, no KDE, almost nothing) and updated
it with yum. After that yum groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)" broke
with "too many
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (tried three times).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F6.91
2. yum -y update
3. yum -y groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment"
yum breaks with:
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Too many open files (24)...
Look at the screenshot, qemu-0.9.0-2 (FC6), 1GB ram on the machine, 512MB for
the virtual one + 8G virtual disk.

yum error while 'yum -y groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment"'
Looks like I was wrong about yum, it should be
setroubleshoot-server-1.9.3-1.fc7. After the previous error I killed yum,
rebuilt the rpm database (rpm --rebuilddb) and did
a 'rpm -ihv /var/cache/yum/development/packages/*.rpm' - the same error.
After 'service setroubleshoot stop; rpm --rebuilddb; setenforce 0' everything
was fine (and just a bit faster).
Reassigning to setroubleshoot (I see no setroubleshoot-server), don't know
about the Severity. Will attach screenshots.

after stopping setroubleshoot and setenforce 0 (just for sure) rpm -ihv
--replacepkgs ... succeeded.
