Description Vince Schiavoni 2007-09-06 00:44:41 EDT
Description of problem:
kyum freezes/locks up sporadically when "query installed version..." (either
short or extended) is selected from the (right-click) context menu on the
"Actions=>Packages Available for Update" window (seems to be OK for "Packages
Available for Install").  I also just noticed that "Show Dependencies" always
fails with "Process xyz exited abnormally with code 0".  Example:

["Status" frame]
Executing command: 
yum deplist audacious-1.3.2-1.fc6
Process 30543 (yum) has been started.
Process 30543 exited abnormally with code 0


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kyum-0.7.5-4.fc6 from Fedora Project
kde 3.5.7-9.fc6 from Fedora, KDE Packaging Project, and others.

How reproducible:
Often, but not every single time - but trying to query more than a few (let's
say 3-4) times will inevitably result in a freeze, after which kyum must be

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch kyum;
2. Load with "List Updates";
3. Attempt to "Query Installed Version" (either short or extended) 3-5 times;
4. Observe meltdown.
Actual results:
Application freezes after one or more "Query..." attempts; "Show Dependencies"
fails as noted.

Expected results:
"Query..." outputs desired info; "Show Dependencies" shows dependencies.

Just upgraded my second machine to F7, and am getting the exact same results;
this machine has very few 3rd-party packages installed on it (yet), so repo
conflicts should not be a problem here (although I can't be 100% sure...).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kyum-0.7.5-7.fc7 from Fedora Project
kdebase-3.5.7-13.fc7 from Fedora Project

At first, sorry for the deley. I have try to reproduced the reported issue on my
machine. Unfortunately, I can't recognize any issue after I have following the
described step in your error report.
