Add/remove software, pirut fails
Last modified: 2007-12-26 13:52:56 EST
Description of problem:
I just installed Fedora7. After installation I updated the system using the
software updater - no problems in this step. After rebooting the computer I
tried to add a few packages using the "Add/remove software" tool, which resulted
in the error message shown in the attached file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Pirut version 1.3.9, release number 1.fc7

Is your network available?

> Is your network available?
Yes, the network works fine. I can surf the net with mozilla and so on...

error output pirut
(deleted Â¨adobe-linux.repoÂ¨ in yum.repos.d and error doesnt appear anymore)
It's still not working. The file adobe-linux.repo does not exist in my
/etc/yum.repos.d... this directory only contains the files
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1541 2007-05-24 22:58 fedora-development.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1096 2007-05-24 22:58 fedora.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1006 2007-05-24 22:58 fedora-updates.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1084 2007-05-24 22:58 fedora-updates-testing.repo
Making sure to get the right application on this bug to avoid confusion: Pirut
instead of 4Suite.
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?

Error message from: $yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update pirut
I ran the yum command (as root):
$ yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update pirut
and got the error shown in the attachment.
Your network has a proxy which you have to log in to and haven't done so.
Hmm... this seems strange. Just after I got the error mentioned in comment #8, I
tried to see if I could surf the web with Firefox and there were no problems
doing this, so I assumed that I had been logged in to the proxy?

dump created by pirut
I had successfully completed a daily software update per yum. I selected
Applications->Add/Remove Software and pirut crashes.
