Description James Livingston 2009-09-22 23:43:02 EDT
Description of problem:
If you try to run "debuginfo-install <package>" while yum is being used (for example, by PackageKit) it fails, and does not wait for the yum lock like some other tools do.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a program that uses yum
2. Run "debuginfo-install <package>"
3. Watch it fail.
Actual results:
'Another application is holding the yum lock, cannot continue' message, and it exits

Expected results:
debuginfo-intall tells me that another program holds the yum lock, and it tries again periodically until it can acquire the lock.

I am working on using the same locking in most yum newer yum-utils, that is used in yum-cli.
Comment 2 Tim Lauridsen 2010-04-29 08:40:51 EDT
fixed in yum 3.2.26
