Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 444532
Cannot install via yum or pirut
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:02:33 EST
Description of problem:
pirut produces an exception when starting. yum quits with error "NameError:
global name 'ParsingError' is not defined"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
command with yum: yum install kmod-fglrx
OR try to run pirut.
(pirut gives same message as yum):
[root@localhost ~]# yum install kmod-fglrx
Traceback (most recent call last):

New nvidia drivers should be installed
This doesn't seem to be specific to the package I'm trying to install - pirut
crashes on startup (after root password). The error is also produced with the
[root@localhost ~]# yum list available
what version of yum is this?
This is a fresh (24 hours ago) download of Fedora 8 64-bit, and it has performed
an online system update
Well, we've fixed the traceback in later versions of yum in Fedora 9. Do you
have any plugins installed? B/c one of them appears to have a broken config file.
Close this bug :)
Well, since finding this bug. I've done another fresh install of Fedora 8, but
am avoiding the online update thingy. I can't remember now if there were any
plug-ins at the time. I currently need it for work, and cannot invest much more
time experimenting, but when this project is over, I'll try an update and see
what happens - won't matter then if I trash it. I'll do a bit of reading around
before I try Fedora 9 ...
Thanks for the feedback!
