Description Gilbert Fernandes 2002-12-27 11:50:29 UTC

Description of problem:
I have upgraded my Red Hat 8.0 to Phoebe yesterday.
I tried to launch the package manager, I type the root password and then it
crashes with an "unknown error" message. Launching it from an xterm seems much
more verbose :

[gilb@glinux gilb]$ redhat-config-packages
(MainWindow.py:6682): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid uninstantiatable type `gi
nt' in cast to `GtkObject'
(MainWindow.py:6682): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: instance of invalid non-instantia
table type `gint'
(MainWindow.py:6682): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: file gsignal.c: line 2056 (g_sig
nal_handlers_destroy): assertion `G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed

I am gonna save my files, and try a full install of Phoebe instead to see if
this comes from the update, rather than Phoebe itself.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Red Hat 8.0 + upgrade to Phoebe
2. Xterm + "redhat-config-packages" (I do this as root)
3. See message above

Actual Results:  assertion `G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed

Expected Results:  Launch of package manager.

Additional info:

Machine is a casual i386.
Been running Red Hat 8 since it went out.
Everything is standard there: kernel, everything.
I just use Open Office to write articles with it, Mozilla and Gimp.
Nothing else.
