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?)

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

RL

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.

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.
