Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 396931
pirut infinite recursion
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:23 EST
Description of problem:
I tried to install nvidia's Cg compiler, using its rpm package for RedHat, named
Cg-1.5_Sep2007.x86_64.rpm, and a dialog box comes up that says an unhandled
exception occurred that is most likely a bug.
The crash occurred while system-install-packages was loading the rpm file -
before I could click "Apply" or anything.
The stack trace appears to be repeating, thus I believe there is some kind of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm not able to discover what version-release number of pirut is installed.
Try to install Cg-1.5_Sep2007.x86_64.rpm
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download Cg-1.5_Sep2007.x86_64.rpm from
2. Attempt to install the rpm
not a crash
I tried to re-download the rpm in case the first download was corrupted, but it
did not solve the issue.

I think I'm seeing the same problem. It may be related to using the version
lock yum plugin. When I run system-install-packages from the command line I see
"Reading version lock configuration" repeated over and over before I get the
same crash. Disabling the versionlock plugin makes the problem go away.
