terminal log during preupgrade getting boot and packages
Description of problem:
Noted some (seemingly non-critical) warnings spewed to terminal during preupgrade gui process.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F11
2. update to current updates
3. start terminal and run preupgrade
4. choose show me dev releases, and select rawhide
1. GError issues:
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sqlitecachec.py:45: Warning: GError set over the top of a previous GError or uninitialized memory.
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/createrepo/__init__.py", line 829, in doRepoMetadata
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sqlitecachec.py", line 45, in getPrimary
TypeError: Parsing primary.xml error: attributes construct error
yum 3.2.24 in f11 updates solves this problem.
The above warnings and traceback are no longer seen.
The only unexpected message is warning for the future development...
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/__init__.py:203: UserWarning: Use .preconf instead of passing args to _getConfig

Detected in-progress upgrade to Rawhide
Sorry to reopen but I've hit the same bug on F10; any plans to update F10 to yum-3.2.24?
you hit the same bug going f10->f11 or f10-rawhide/f12?
F10->Rawhide. Why? Is the problem caused by F10 yum having trouble with the repodata/package headers/etc from F12?
It's a package in f12/rawhide that's tripping up yum/createrepo.
Discussed with wwoods who suggested this might be good to note for users going from F10->rawhide using preupgrade. Adding the keyword so this lands on the CommonBugs? radar.
preupgrade-1.1.2-1.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
yum-3.2.24 has been submitted as an update for F10; preupgrade-1.1.2-1.fc10 just requires the newer yum, which has the fix.
preupgrade-1.1.2-1.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update preupgrade'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F10/FEDORA-2009-10803
preupgrade-1.1.2-1.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
so there's nothing needing to be common_bugs documented now, right?
