Description Daniel Wilcox 2007-11-23 10:39:10 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
infinite recursion.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm not able to discover what version-release number of pirut is installed.

How reproducible:
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

Actual results:
pirut crash

Expected results:
not a crash

Additional info:
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.
