Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-06-24 19:51:27 UTC
When trying to use repo-rss with yum 2.3.x the following traceback is generated
due to the change in how yum handles changelogs:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/", line 238, in ?
    main(options, args)
  File "/usr/bin/", line 212, in main
    rssobj.doPkg(pkg, url)
  File "/usr/bin/", line 110, in doPkg
    item = self.rsspkg(pkg, url)
  File "/usr/bin/", line 136, in rsspkg
    for e in pkg.changelog:
TypeError: iteration over non-sequence

Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2005-06-27 05:45:38 UTC
can you give me the versions of yum and which release of repo-rss this is?

I can't make this happen on my yum 2.3.3 and repo-rss from cvs.

Comment 2 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-06-27 05:59:59 UTC
This is with yum 2.3.2-7. Updating yum to 2.3.3-1 doesn't solve this. Where's
the CVS for repo-rss?

Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2005-06-27 06:04:01 UTC
I don't remember changing any code in repo-rss but cvs is available via the web

Comment 4 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-06-27 10:25:24 UTC
Ah, I see the problem. It's on my end, not yours. Sorry about that.

Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2005-06-27 13:16:01 UTC
would you mind telling me what it was?
