^^^^This error was produced by Add/Remove Packages ^^^
yumex is saying "error in loading repository data"
and here is a copy of the out put
Mirrordetection : default
Yum Version : 2.6.1 (/usr/share/yum-cli)
Loading "fedorakmod" plugin
Loading "protectbase" plugin
Loading "versionlock" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "kernel-module" plugin
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
Reading version lock configuration
I did not get a chance to install Kyum on this computer so the kyum report will
come from a differant one with an older kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
open any yum type app
Steps to Reproduce:
it does not work
list of avail apps
Talking with my brother on skype we just solved it!!!
and he think is related to yum-utils and yum-utils-plugins
versionlock -Allow locking packages to certain versions
!OK HOW TO FIX!
[17:07:26] kynalohikaarme: /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.conf
[17:07:35] … set enable = 0
[17:07:44] … SOLVED!!!
The versionlock plugin is designed to fail if the
/etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.list file is missing, so if you installed the
yum-versionlock plugin you have to create the file.
It is not a good idea to install all available yum plugins, most of them is
created to solve a special purpose, so if you don't need the special
functionality, the don't install the plugins.
use 'rpm -qa | grep yum-' to list the yum components.
you can remove all except these one. (FC6 & FC7)
'yum remove yum-versionlock' etc to remove the plugins.
