What version of rpm is this? rpm would sometimes "unnecessarily" raise
exception when attempting to add the same package to a transaction twice, rpm will only do that on corrupted packages.

In any case, yum should be taught to handle an exception on ts.addInstall()
Comment 2 Mitchell 2008-01-07 17:46:27 EST
I am running RPM version  After reading you comments i did a 'yum
update rpm'  That installed  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.
