Description Matt Domsch 2008-05-08 21:35:53 EDT
Description of problem:
<mdomsch> scenario: yum downloads metadata (or tries to) while behind some
captive access point
<mdomsch> the AP lies and says "sure, here's the mirrorlist"
<mdomsch> when in fact what you got was the AP's welcome page
<mdomsch> packagekitd segfaults
<mdomsch> from this

<skvidal> mdomsch: please file it, we'll fix the error message
<skvidal> we just have to tell it to encode/decode that string
<skvidal> it's not the end of the world
<skvidal> just very irritating
<mdomsch> thought you'd appreciate it
<mdomsch> always trying to brighten your world - that's me :-)
<skvidal> mdomsch: you see how it is trying to raise properly?
<mdomsch> yep
