Description Brad Smith 2007-07-31 11:21:10 EDT
Description of problem:
Just installed s-c-k. On first run and all subsequent runs, it starts, begins
reading repo information and then crashes. It appears to do this because it
can't get some metadata from the [development] repo even though enabled=0 for it. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run s-c-k
Actual results:

What repos do you have enabled and disabled?
Comment 3 Brad Smith 2007-07-31 14:51:02 EDT
Hmm... I had adobe and livna enabled in addition to the standard fedora and
updates repos. I disabled them, ran it and it works. Then I re-enabled them and
it still works. So either it was a temporary problem with one of the repos
(shouldn't it just start but not allow fancy package customization in that
case?) or the "reset" fixed it.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2007-07-31 14:58:35 EDT
Probably some temporary network or repo problem that went away between runs. 
You're right in that it should disable package selection if there are problems
instead of crashing, though.  It does a little bit of that but I need more
exception handling to catch this case.  I'll add that for a new version.
