Description of problem:
gnorpm (0.96) works as non-root user, but fails with "XML-CRITICAL **:
Document is empty\nXML-CRITICAL **: Start tag expect, '<' not found" when
run as root or in su'd shell WHEN THE "WEB FIND" BUTTON IS CLICKED.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login as root, or su to root
2.execute gnorpm from command line
3.click on "Web find" button
4.look at output in shell
Actual Results: The Web find window opens but all fields are empty or
place-holders. The program outputs the following to the terminal:
XML-CRITICAL **: Document is empty
XML-CRITICAL **: Start tag expect, '<' not found
Expected Results: "Web find" window should open and display list of
available rpm's for download and/or install.
This behavior started after I recently upgraded Perl from the distribution
version to v5.6.1 via CPAN module's "install Bundle::CPAN".
The gnorpm version is 0.96, rpm version is 4.0.3.
Works OK for me; perhaps the new Perl somehow replaced the XML or other relevant
In any case, deferring gnorpm bugs since we are working on replacing rather than
repairing it. Suggest using up2date as well.
