software manager crash bug
Hey what's up

I'm a brand new linux user running FC5 small problem i'm having with the pirut software manager on gnome. Everything was running fine until i discovered the update manager when i ws trying to install a i updated yum, there were about bunch avalible and figured i should be ok to update it and proceeded. After updating when i accessed the add/remove software it gave me the following bug report


Component: Software Manager

Does anyone know of a way to rollback the yum updates or purge the yum files?

Download the latest Yum RPM from your distro's repo and use rpm to try and upgrade it.

i figured out what happened. i had manually updated yum with all updates avalible, since most of them were for fc6 it wouldn't work properly. this really didn't resolve anyhing but i reformatted my os. thanks for your help anyway

Aww. OK. Please remember for next time reinstalling the OS should not be necessary unless you really and deliberately fscked up.
