Crash Dump

Comment 2 Martin A. Boegelund 2007-05-13 18:52:18 UTC
I can't use Software Updater either. And yum doesn't work either.

First I had a crash, where the dump indicated that the livna repository was a
problem. So I removed livna.
Then I had a crash, where the dump indicated that the freshrpms repository was a
problem. So I removed freshrpms.
Then I had a crash, where the dump indicated that a column ("checksum_value")
was missing from sqlite.

I've attached a crash dump from the 3rd crash.

My system is a fresh update from FC6 to FC7Test4. Hardware is i386/Celeron 2MHz

Crash dump from Software Updater, "no such column: checksum_value"

Software updater crashes in first attempt to update system.

Comment 4 Martin A. Boegelund 2007-05-13 22:37:00 UTC
I think I found a solution that works in my case:

First I downloaded rpm-packages for
- yum
- yum-metadata-parser
- yum-updatesd
from the development repository at

Then I installed these packages with an rpm command-line transaction:
# rpm -Uvh yum-3.1.7-2.fc7.noarch.rpm yum-metadata-parser-1.1.0-1.fc7.i386.rpm

Then I ran yum to update my system:
# yum update

And it looks like it works.

Updating yum works like a charm.  Updates install successfully.  Thanks for the
info Martin.

Comment 6 Peter van Egdom 2008-01-26 13:41:50 UTC
Thank you for the report. However this has been reported to the incorrect
component. Reassigning from "up2date" to "pirut". 

Closing bug as per comment #4 and comment #5.
