Description David Cantrell 2008-10-05 03:27:28 EDT
Created attachment 319489 [details]

setupYumConfig() does not take in a list of arguments that are initially handed to yummain.  When parse_args() is called, it resorts to sys.argv, which is fine when yummain is called from /usr/bin/yum, but fails if you are importing yummain in to another program.

The attached patch fixes the issue.

I tried to clone upstream yum, but that was fail:

error: Unable to find 99e37a9927b0581285a2e981f94c881729ff2aa0 under http://yum.baseurl.org/git/yum.git
Cannot obtain needed object 99e37a9927b0581285a2e981f94c881729ff2aa0
while processing commit 00ca7c531840c75958e6c87b249562efce74ea9a.
fatal: Fetch failed.

So I'm opening the bug here.

 it'll get into the next refresh that's done for Fedora 10, 3.2.19-6 or later.
