Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'yum update'
yum crashes and i am back at the root prompt
I have atrpms and fresh rpms repos installed.
What version of rpm is this? rpm 126.96.36.199 would sometimes "unnecessarily" raise
exception when attempting to add the same package to a transaction twice, rpm
188.8.131.52 will only do that on corrupted packages.
In any case, yum should be taught to handle an exception on ts.addInstall()
I am running RPM version 184.108.40.206. After reading you comments i did a 'yum
update rpm' That installed 220.127.116.11. Now when i run a 'yum update' the update
process proceeds normally.
Before i put in this bug report I was having issues installing nvidia-graphics
from ATrpms. yum wasn't working out the correct kmdl's. So i did a 'yum update
yum' and that fixed the kmdl issue but i got this yum crash. So, maybe 'yum
udate yum' should also upgraded rpm as well.
no matter what i did yum shouldn't have crashed like this. Ill let the devs
decide if they want to close this or figure out exactly why yum crashed.
