Description Michal Jaegermann 2007-10-06 13:43:39 EDT
Description of problem:

With all current updates commands like 'package-cleanup --problems'
or 'package-cleanup --dupes' end up with the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/package-cleanup", line 402, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/package-cleanup", line 365, in main

    enabled = self.getAttribute('enabled')
RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded

'package-cleanup --help' or 'package-cleanup --orphans' works without
any recursion surprises.

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2007-10-08 09:07:37 EDT
this is fixed in git in yum, currently. A patch will be included for fedora today.

Comment 2 Edouard PELLERIN 2009-04-13 07:26:17 EDT
I have the same error with yum-utils 1.1.19/yum 3.2.21 on an up to date F10 installation. Is this version not patched ? It was previously working and I don't see what could have changed since last time.
Comment 3 seth vidal 2009-04-13 11:15:29 EDT
you get this exact error? Can you post the complete output you're seeing?
Comment 4 Edouard PELLERIN 2009-04-13 11:54:52 EDT
The "Runtime Error" was the same. After looking in details, I saw an impressive number of lines with :
"0 packages excluded due to repository protections
Reading version lock configuration"
I disabled the versionlock plugin, and it was working again. Should I file a new bug for versionlock ?
Comment 5 seth vidal 2009-04-13 12:01:01 EDT
Did you receive this error when running package-cleanup or something else?

In either case what verson of yum-versionlock do you have installed?
Comment 6 Edouard PELLERIN 2009-04-13 12:04:27 EDT
I got the error when running "package-cleanup --leaves"
The version of yum-lockversion is 1.1.19
