In 8.0, my redhat package manager scans for packages then just closes. I can't uninstall or install new packages from the CD's. When run in a terminal it gives me:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/MainWindow.py", line 163, in ?
comps = im.readCompsViaMethod(hdlist, progress.update)
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/method.py", line 488, in readCompsViaMethod
update_method = update_method)
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/comps.py", line 387, in __init__

File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/comps.py", line 420, in setupStateDicts
for prov in h[rpm.RPMTAG_PROVIDES]:
TypeError: iteration over non-sequence
Don't know how this happened because it was working earlier. I recently tried to install xine and Mplayer. Maybe that had something to do with it.
thanks for any help.
