Description Harald Reindl 2012-03-28 06:54:13 EDT
the following output happens way to often with
dependcy problems - i can remember times were
yum created useful errormessages with them 
you could solve nearly any dep-trouble by
a temporary "rpm -e --nodpes"

currently i am sitting here wild guessing what package 
to remove for upgrade a testmachine F15->F16

Führe rpm_check_debug durch
FEHLER mit rpm_check_debug gegen depsolve:

Comment 1 Zdeněk Pavlas 2012-03-29 04:31:47 EDT
I can't reproduce this bug.  to_utf8() didn't fail, since it's frame is not included in the traceback.  So, it must have returned an utf8-encoded str.  

'print' then tries to *decode* it from ascii to unicode and fails, obviously.  But I have no idea why Python does that.  Perhaps there's some implicit str => unicode conversion?

# this is what we want to do
$ python -c "print u'\u011b'.encode('utf8')"

# this is what Python does
$ python -c "print u'\u011b'.encode('utf8') + u''"

What locale setting are you using?
Which Python version?
Comment 2 Harald Reindl 2012-03-29 05:47:56 EDT
it was a F15 with recent updates
german locale

it happened by "yum --releasever=16 distro-sync" on a machine with only internal repos which had clamav-packages which are removed from the repo

the strange is taht dependencies are completly solved
and this happen while depsolve after confirm / download

"yum remove clamav\*" solved the issue
but i remember times where "depsolve" gave useful output in such cases
