Pirut Crash Dump
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-22 14:08:45 EDT
Does this happen every time?  Can you run 'yum clean all' as root and then see
if it continues to occur?
Comment 3 Shailen Sobhee 2007-10-22 15:34:37 EDT
Yeah, at the time I got this error,initially. yum won't load at all, even if do 
a 'yum clean all', reset my repos.d folder or verify that my yum.conf is ok.

However, installing yumex 2.0.2 solved the issue. I haven't seen the pirut bug 
popping again.

I also tried to disable SELinux. I dont't know how far this has helped yum to 
load properly. 

In any case, help on the fedora forums has been of good use, but I shall let 
you know any further occurrence of this bug.

You may wish to close this issue, unless you have received more complaints 
about it, or you really wish to bring changes to yum/yumex.


Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-22 15:54:32 EDT
Okay.  I've put some changes into the current pirut (currently in
-updates-testing, will be updated and be pushed to f7-updates soon)
