sigh, it's a freaking text file, bugzilla :P

Oh, heh, actually the failure is causes by being non-root.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2007-03-27 14:38:44 EDT
I'm seeing this with repoquery as well.

Also seeing this. See attached debug output.
Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2007-04-23 10:37:23 EDT
Christopher - that is a different bug than the one originally addressed in this
report, and is tracked by bug 236999.
Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-24 18:01:02 EDT
This is fixed with CVS yum, at least the main part.  

I then get a different traceback since you've enabled the core repo which ends
up with a releasever of 6.92 and there isn't a valid mirrorlist for that. 
You're either going to need to 
  1) catch the RepoError in doRepoSetup()
  2) or individually setup the repos when you enable them (repo.setup())
Comment 9 Chris Lumens 2007-04-25 13:49:18 EDT
We weren't able to reproduce this on today's rawhide, so I'm closing this out.
