User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010809

Description of problem:
up2date and up2date-nox 2.6.0-7.x.37 hang when retrieving the headers for
skipped packages or when retrieving headers for available packages.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run up2date or up2date-nox -u

Actual Results:  If I have kernel* and glibc* listed as exceptions, up2date
hangs at 11% when retrieving skipped headers.  If I remove the exceptions,
it hangs at 28% on retrieving headers for available packages.

Traceback (innermost last):

Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2001-09-04 12:27:35 EDT
which version of python-xmlrpc is currently installed?

Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2001-09-04 19:48:59 EDT
okay, think I see what is going on. This will be
fixed in the next version.
Comment 3 Eric Schaffner 2001-09-04 20:38:31 EDT
It was running with  python-xmlrpc-1.4.5-0.7.x.  Upgrading to
python-xmlrpc-1.4.8-3 fixed the problem.
Comment 4 Adrian Likins 2001-09-04 23:27:45 EDT
Cool. Thanks for the followup.
Comment 5 Matt Jamison 2003-05-19 12:24:54 EDT
confirmed to now work in version: up2date-2.7.86-7.x.3
