Description of problem: update to kernel-doc-2.6.25 cause X application crash

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):2.6.25

How reproducible:smart and package manager both fail everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1.launch update with kernel-xen-2.6-doc- already installed
2.select kernel-doc-2.6.25
3.commit and wait for the crash
Actual results:
program closes 
no indication what happened, package not installed

Expected results:
report reason for failure

Additional info:
launching from terminal gives X allocation error after closing
yumex run from a terminal manages to log the errors and echo the errors to the

works in reverse too:
1) uninstalled kernel-xen-2.6-doc-
2) installed  kernel-doc-2.6.25

Okay, there's a packaging issue here with the kernel-xen-doc and kernel-doc. The
issue with smart crashing should be filed with smart. Yumex appears to be
behaving correctly. I'm going to reassign this to the kernel folks for comments.
Comment 3 i fennell 2008-06-08 15:51:14 EDT
first package manager is gpk-application 0.1.12 .It and Smart Package Manager
0.52 act the same way. Perhaps it's a common library call.
Should I pass it to both smart and gpk-application?

Comment 4 Chuck Ebbert 2008-06-08 23:48:04 EDT
Should we make kernel-doc and kernel-xen-doc conflicting packages???
Comment 5 i fennell 2008-06-09 15:15:45 EDT
smart bug 450593
gpk-application 450594
Comment 6 Chuck Ebbert 2008-06-10 15:15:03 EDT
Changing package to kernel-xen. Maybe just killing the kernel-xen-doc package is
a solution?
Comment 7 Mark McLoughlin 2008-07-25 05:15:07 EDT
Killing kernel-xen itself should have done the trick :-)
