Description Stephen 2007-12-29 13:30:00 UTC
Description of problem:

After upgrading F7 -> F8 via DVD there is a Fedora-install-media.repo file in
/etc/yum.repos.d which is enabled. It causes Pirut to crash.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Choose Add/Remove Software from the main menu and pirut will ask for the CD.
2. Instead, choose the repositories button and uncheck the Install Media option.
3. Choose close.
4. Pirut crashes.

Actual results:

Component: pirut

Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2008-01-02 03:33:08 UTC
Can you tell me what version of yum you have installed?

Comment 2 Stephen 2008-01-02 03:43:59 UTC

Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2008-03-12 16:16:51 UTC
can you post your yum.conf file?

Comment 4 Stephen 2008-03-12 20:10:54 UTC

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d

Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2008-03-12 20:27:54 UTC
Do you have any yum plugins installed?

could you post:

yum list installed yum\* rpm\*

Comment 7 Seth Vidal 2008-03-13 01:48:28 UTC
And can you post all of the .repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d or /etc/yum/repos.d ?

yum.repos.d - only 3 enabled

Comment 9 Seth Vidal 2008-03-13 03:03:55 UTC
okay - so this happens just b/c the installmedia repo exists AT all? Or does it
only happen when it is enabled?

Comment 10 Seth Vidal 2008-03-13 03:11:58 UTC
okay, I tested yum 3.2.12 from rawhide and pirut 1.3.28-1.fc8 and I can't get
enable/disable in the repo editor to make that traceback.

Can make it happen each time?

Can you update to yum from rawhide and test it?

yum install pygpgme
yum --enablerepo=rawhide update yum

then test it again.

Comment 11 Stephen 2008-03-13 03:27:15 UTC
It happens only when it is enabled. When the media repo is enabled, pirut asks
for a cd. Choose the middle button to edit repos. Uncheck the media repo. Close.

Happens every time.

Installing from yum rawhide fails:

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rawhide.
Please verify its path and try again

To be honest, I'm not keen to bork my machine with an unstable yum... Sorry.

Comment 12 Seth Vidal 2008-03-13 03:36:01 UTC
I think I cannot replicate this but I want to get someone else to test it:

1. add a .repo file with these contents:
name=Fedora 8
enabled = 1

2. run pirut

3. when it prompts you to insert the cd, click 'repository manager'

4. disable that repo

this is where it should fallover, right?

Comment 13 Mike McGrath 2008-03-13 03:42:09 UTC
selinux disabled, suggestions from comment #12 caused no crash.  Perhaps a
strace might shed some light on the subject.  Yum version yum-3.2.8-2.fc8 i386 box.

Comment 14 Seth Vidal 2008-03-13 05:37:48 UTC
Strace sounds like fun.

Stephen can you run pirut in strace and make this occur. I'd love to know what
it is doing right before it dies.

ltrace pirut (tgz)

4.5. click 'close' on the repository manager, and there is a 3 sec pause as yum
goes on to load plugins before stack trace appears.

How do you 'sudo strace ...' a process? (pirut has a setuid helper, strace
under sudo can't connect to X)

Attached is a the output from:

    $ ltrace -o pirut.ltrace -rfS pirut

Comment 16 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 09:12:40 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 17 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 05:38:53 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
