Description Remy Maucherat 2007-10-04 09:26:49 EDT
Description of problem:
pirut and pup do not startup correctly on my Fedora 7 installation anymore. When
running them, both appear to do nothing for about two minutes, then display a
"Config error." dialog box, with "Unable to start due to a configuration error."
and Details set to "None", then exit normally. yum works normally.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pirut - 1.3.9-1.fc7.noarch

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Could not determine what caused the problem.
Comment 1 Remy Maucherat 2007-10-04 10:50:42 EDT
This seems to have been caused by errors like this one (visible using yumex in
08:41:14 : Failure getting ftp://ftp.uci.edu/mirrors/fedora/li...a/comps-f7.xml:
08:41:14 : --> [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
08:41:14 : Trying other mirror.

The error reporting in pup/pirut is non existent in this situation.

Error Dialog Box

This problem has also been reported in linuxquestions.org.  The message isn't
much help, but I've attached a png of the dialog box.  Does anyone know if
there is a debug option that could be used when launching pup?
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-05 10:18:14 EDT
As mentioned in comment #1, the comps file in the updates repo was broken
yesterday leading to the problems being seen.  That is bug 318441.

The fact that the error dialog is empty is fixed and will go out in the pending
pirut update, marking as a dupe of that one
