Description Chris Spencer 2008-02-02 15:21:02 EST
Description of problem:
Yum becomes unresponsive after simple searches, consuming 100% CPU, and must be
killed. This problem is even more severe in pirut, where the GUI becomes unusable.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum search rar
Actual results:
Yum cannot be aborted, runs indefinitely, and consumes a large amount of CPU.
Ctrl+C does not work, and the process must be killed.

Expected results:
Yum should not lockup, and should return results quickly. Even for large numbers
of matches, Yum should not require killing.

 A fix for this went into 3.2.10 which is already in rawhide, and that works for
me. Do you still have an older version?
Comment 2 Erik Terwan 2008-02-16 10:03:54 EST
Same problem in Fedora 8.
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2008-02-16 14:47:27 EST
What version of yum are you using?

Comment 4 James Antill 2008-02-16 17:16:12 EST
 If you want to fix this, do:

 yum install pygpgme
 yum --enablerepo=development install yum

...it's unlikely we'll fix this in Fedora 8 before Fedora 9 is released.
