Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 288871
Yum GUI takes a few minutes to start and then fails with error message
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:59:29 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not sure, happens sporadically, usually after reboot or network restart
Steps to Reproduce:
Yum takes a few minutes to start (GUI) and then display warning about a bug.
Yum should start almost immediately
I have experience of yum taking up to 10 minutes to activate the GUI once it is
loaded. The process is running and I cannot see any reason for the slow
response. DNS is working and I can connect to the web.

Error Report created by X when yum crashses
Forgot to mention, that after this error occurs, re-running Yum tends to work 100%
reassigning to pirut
What are the contents of /etc/yum.repos.d/adobe-linux.repo. Can you access the
URL listed in the file?
/etc/yum.repos.d/adobe-linux.repo contents are:
name=Adobe Systems Incorporated
I can connect to the site via a web browser, but it says access forbidden
Can you access http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/i386/repodata/repomd.xml ?
(And fix is already in pirut to handle the error better, and will be pushed for
Fedora 7 within the next week or so. But trying to get to he bottom of the error)
I can access http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/i386/repodata/repomd.xml
An updated pirut packages is available in the Fedora 7 Updates Testing
repository which should help to resolve this problem. Can you install this
package by running
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update pirut
and then see if you still can reproduce this problem?
