add/remove software exception occurred FC6
 
package manager crashed on first update of a fresh zod install. after saving the report and closing the program python went wild using 100% cpu. after killing it i tried add/remove software and that crashed too. any help in getting this issue resolved would be greatly appreciated.

this is the bug report. i noticed that at the end optional was miss spelled but i'm not sure if that would be the problem or not.

Haha, i got this to after the last updates!!!

Easy solution.

1. logon as root
2. open a shell
3. yum install digikam

takes a little while, and it works like a charm again...

Uh well sorry, but after a restart its not working annymore, back to the drawingboard!

i tried "yum update" to get past the issue, but it didn't work so i reinstalled fedora thinking it was a problem with my install. (great way to waste 6 hrs and learn a little bit more about linux if you're bored):(


anyways does it look like the issue is on my system? as in it can be changed in a log or file, or is it an issue with a repository? (someone mispelled something and now no one can sync to it?)

getting the same error (or similar)

this also with a clean install - i clicked the bubble that said update and i got the error

i also get the error and add/remove

any ideas?

Also not to sound stupid - but whats a shell,
and im only log in as root - is that an issue

thanks

shell is the terminal afaik.

and even if you don't log in as root you have to give root password to update so that shouldn't be a problem.


i'm starting to think it's a typo in the repository, but updating with yum works fine it's only the gui interfaces that cause the problems on my system.

sorry im a complete linux newbie

i shall look around

thanks

RL

Edit

ahh i have found it :) running now

thanks

imakickthebox 01-25-2007 03:54 PM

well i don't know what changed but it started working. so everyone who's had this problem try to use add/remove and see if it works now. :)
