Description alan 1999-02-08 19:49:05 UTC
When verifying the package base/basesystem4.9-3 we get the
following errors on the startup terminal, followed by a dead
checkup reporting screen

[root@cyclone local]# glint
Glint Graphical Package Manager -- version 2.6.2

  File "./", line 182, in DoVerify

    for file in package.getFileEntries():
  File "./", line 157, in getFileEntries
    for i in range(len(fileNames)):
TypeError: len() of unsized object
[root@cyclone local]#

When verifying the package base/dev2.5.9-1, GLINT crashes
and exits with no diagnostic messages.

By the way, we really do like GLINT -- hope there will be
some updates eventually...

I have verified this to happen on a test machine as reported. This
report has been passed on to a developer.

glint is being removed from the distribution. Sorry.
