Bug Log thing that pops up
Michael, I can't see how this bug report would be related to myself. AFAIK I'm
not the default maintainer for pirut. I'll reassign this report to the default
owner of this component.
What versions of yum and pirut do you have installed (rpm -q pirut yum)?
And does this happen always?
Yes, every time. Now, it's not giving me the original error message anymore though.
I'm getting a different one that says configuration error. This one has no
details with it though.
Can you try with yum-3.2.4 which is now in -updates?
and I'm getting the same sort of error.
Surely this group (255341, 426246, 426894) are all from the same root cause?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
This should be fixed in Fedora 8
